Although these one line tattoos are technically minimalist, it's undeniable that they are also extremely intricate. After all, a lot of careful skill and concentration must be put into designs that are executed with one single line. In fact, some people might scoff at the possibility of such creations, let alone ones that live permanently on a person's body.

Created by Mo Ganji, an artist based in Berlin, Germany, the one line tattoos are works of art. From elephants and koi fish to gestural images of half-drawn faces, the designs range greatly. There is also a bit of a tribal element to each look. Interestingly, Ganji finishes the artworks with dots, which is what gives them their tribal aesthetic. That and the angles of the lines.
