Rather than being a straight-forward line drawing, this tattoo by Australian artist, Chris Rigoni, uses thousands of dots and a bit of color to create this compelling mandala.
I appreciate his use of stippling (dots) to give this mandala it’s shape and depth. It took me a bit to figure out what was really different about his design…and, lo and behold, there it was. If you look closely [select the image for a closer look] you’ll notice that it is the “lack of dots” which creates the illusion of the “white” lines that form the design of this mandala. AWESOME!
