And I was suddenly struck with a thought.... Spirograph tattoos!? Certainly this has been a thing. I turned to Google.
If you're not familiar with Spirographs they are a geometrical drawings of symmetrical curve patterns. And i was right in assuming they'd make lovely tattoos. It most definitely is a thing in the tattoo world, perhaps not quite up to I [heart] mom standards but a thing nonetheless. I think this pattern would be intriguing on a joint, say like a shoulder or an elbow.All that said, I am also quite taken with several of the lace tattoo designs you can see on this Tattoo Inspiration Pinterest board (much more so by the lace than all the butterflies!). The intricacy of the pattern detailing is so delicate and beautiful, it makes a tattoo suddenly seem much more feminine.
And no mom, I'm not currently planning my next tattoo. Just admiring.
