Blackwork Tattoos Elevated by Colorful Crossovers and Ornate Geometry

Australian artist Jaya Suartika designs tattoos that will completely change how you view the subject of geometry. Using thick, black lines and occasional pops of color, Suartika concentrates on shapes and patterns that elevate his work. Since the Balinese culture is an important part of his background, the artist's original style has been greatly influenced by this society. “A lot of my childhood surroundings were spent in Bali, where there is art everywhere you look,” Suartika tells This Is Radelaide.

In addition to geometric and cultural muses, the artist also incorporates crossover elements. Several of his pieces feature colorful circles that bisect detailed patterns, giving the entire tattoo a distinctly unique flair. When discussing his craft as a whole, Suartika reflects, “I get lost in tattooing. I love the history of it and I love the possibilities of it. I like experimenting and always trying new things.”
