A hexagon is a six-sided polygon. It can fit perfectly in a circle, and can create unending patterns unto itself. You can tile a plane with equilateral hexagons, creating a sequence that literally never ends. It is the utterly perfect shape when it comes to sacred geometry, so of course, there are many incredibly detailed and unique hexagon tattoos.
The hexagon also occurs naturally within nature, adding to its divine properties — take beehives for example. Those critters aren't taking out a ruler and measuring out each individual cell. They're naturally in tune with how to create the perfect hexagon.
We've gathered some original and utterly mind-blowing hexagon-inspired and hexagon-based tattoos for you. Whether they're optical illusions, scaled and warped to fit the body, or as specific as math itself, these hexagon tattoos will make you question your sense of math and reality itself.
The ability to create literal geometry on the human body is some real life tattoo Da Vinci stuff. Find out more about sacred geometry here.
