Geometric Sleeve Tattoos Visually Crystalize Across the Body

Brandon Crone combines multiple tattoo styles to produce cohesive, stunning pieces of body art. Fusing dotwork, blackwork, and geometry, he adorns clients' arms and chests with designs that flow from intricate angular structures to large areas of solid black. In addition, the non-inked areas of skin create secondary patterns found within the negative space of the tattoos.

Through these meticulous shapes, Crone explores “the infinite nature of awareness and the vast potential of the human mind.” As the designs fold and unfold over the body, the geodesic patterns represent his deep interests in “the realms of quantum physics, eastern philosophies, and the power of the human mind.” The results are eye-catching and thought-provoking.

Aside from being a tattoo artist, Crone is also a painter and the creator of Elektraglyphs, which joins large-scale sculptures, elaborate geometric motifs, and LED lighting technology to create dynamic lightboxes.
