Space, our solar system and the wider universe has transfixed mankind since our earliest historical records. Even as technology advances rapidly in the current century we still wonder about our relevance and origin among the stars.
As explorers we look to the stars and while it maybe several generations before human beings travel to other solar systems. We are nevertheless mesmerized by space facts and the prospect of what mystical riches and challenges might await us. In the meantime we study the planets, the moons, the swirling galaxies and nebula from afar with the help of the best telescopes available and wait patiently for our time to come.
As we learn more about the planets, our moons, solar system and home galaxy the Milky Way we find more and more material to inspire our creative designs. The exciting prospect of sharing our universe with extraterrestrials and UFO’s is frequently addressed in both science fiction and science fact. Popular culture is full of films such as the imaginary Alien franchise along side more realistic portrayals of space such as depicted in ‘The Martian.’
How Space Inspires Tattoo Designers
Space provides graphic designers, game architects and fantasy artists with an almost unlimited array of incredible imagery to draw inspiration from. While many of us will sleep peacefully at night dreaming of exploring the stars and learning what wonders may lie further out from our solar system.
Any form of tattoo design is expressive but space tattoos allow body art to visualize the true vastness of space on the human body. Space themed tattoos and body art accomplish this in the form of fantastic depictions of nebula, planets, stars, moons and spiral galaxies to name but a few.
For those of us who adore everything to do with space and the universe. A science fiction tattoo or any kind of galactic body art is the ultimate expression of dedication to the solar system and what lies beyond.
