Austin Maples: Combining Botany with Geometry

Tattoo Artists1 min Read

These geometric flowers combine the best parts of math and nature.

Austin Maples has made a name for himself in the tattoo community for his wonderful traditional-style tattoos. Working out of Idle Hand in San Francisco, he is one of the most in-demand traditional tattooers in the Bay Area, if not the world.

Maples' flowers are so impressive because of the symmetry found in each tattoo. Each petal is perfectly sized and placed to be just like every other one. Do you have any idea how difficult that is to do? It is this symmetry that gives Maples' flowers an almost mathematical feel to them. There is so much order within each piece! 

Austin is on Instagram, so you should definitely follow him to see more of these beauties. And head over to Idle Hand in California if you want to get one of his tattoos, but make sure to call ahead. The dude is apparently booked for 2 months.
