When it comes to being a tattoo artist, the artist is usually either one of two: an artist that specializes in one specific signature style or a jack of all trades capable of doing all styles. There is nothing wrong with one or the other. Artists just have their preferences of what they like to do and what type of clientele they want. Mo Ganji, for example, is an artist who specializes in his own unique style: line work. But it’s not just any line work, it’s line work that involves only one single continuous line to create the entire piece. It sounds simplistic, but it comes out looking stunning each time.He has a growing collection of simplistic yet mesmerizing line tattoos. They’re the type of lines you’ll want inked onto your skin too.
It’s easier for Ganji to “add and add” than use limited tools to create something he’d consider basic.
It may also be an insight into how he perceives the world.
In addition, each minimalist tattoo of his is produced from one single continuous line.
He’s successfully and creatively captured recognizable contours of both people and animals.
By employing this characteristic aesthetic, he creates “simple images with a strong impact.”
By doing this, he produces unique one-of-a-kind portraits for the client’s liking.
He also finds inspiration for his artwork in wildlife.
Such animals include intertwined fish, howling wolves and mighty bears.
There’s such a big array of subject matter that Ganji will always have something new and surprising he could potentially create.
It also adds a bit of tonality to his pieces.
His creative skills are evident in each of his tattoos.
His ability to transform a continuous line into any object he wishes to is what’s do remarkable about his work.
Ganji’s line tattoos are truly unique and a breath of fresh air.
Ganji works his magic to skillfully transform that one line into people and/or animals in various positions and angles.
“A lot of people are in a similar situation, but nowadays … they’d rather live a ‘safe’ life with a ‘safe’ income and they are willing to sell their beliefs and their freedom for it.”
“I need that peace, because it feels like the older I get, the sicker I get of the world around me.”
