Incredible Leonardo Da Vinci Inspired Tattoos

Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci is one of the most famous people in history and one of the most talented individuals to have ever lived.

Though that's not surprising when you look at his résumé. In his life time Da Vinci excelled as a painter, sculptor, inventor, architect, musician, engineer, mathematician, geologist, writer, botanist, cartographer and anatomist. He is perhaps best known for painting the Mona Lisa and the Last Supper.

The talent and ability of Da Vinci may never be matched by another single person, his works have lasted centuries and still gain world wide acclaim, not bad for a guy who was born to a peasant mother out of wedlock (obviously such a thing would not be a problem today but in Da Vinci's time such a thing was scandalous). Da Vinci's paintings, sculptures and journals are some of the most intricate and delicate pieces of art that has ever been created, so naturally they make incredible tattoos!!

Of course recreating a Da Vinci piece of art in a tattoo is no easy feat but with the ever increasing skill of modern tattoo artists Da Vinci tattoos are on the rise, just ask Miley Cyrus. Anyway without further a do here are some of the best Leonardo Da Vini inspired tattoos around!

Da Vinci sketched the Vitruvian Man around 1490, it is based on the ideal correlations of human proportions...
