Geometric design has found a foothold in tattoo design, alot of black work and dotwork you see in tattooing is based off sacred geometry or geometric patterns, mandalas and the likes.  I watched a TED-Ed video on YouTube the title of which this post is named after.  It’s fascinating how different cultures evolve their art, what formulaes are used to create patterns in their art and how they differ.  Definitely worth a watch if you’re into geometric work or would like an insight into it.
