35 Da Vinci-Inspired Innovations

From Da Vinci Smartphone Designs to Last Supper Tattoos

— May 19, 2011 — Art & Design
Even centuries after his death, Leonardo Da Vinci still manages to inspire, allowing for the creation of these Da Vinci innovations. Whether it's his futuristic steampunk blueprints or his famous paintings of Christ, the renaissance man's body of work has inspired countless people to follow in his footsteps.

It's not surprising to see that the images of the Mona Lisa and The Last Supper have sparked various recreations in the art community, but much more fascinating is how individuals obsess over trying to build Da Vinci's outrageous contraptions using modern-day technology.

Among the more simple, but still noteworthy, of these Da Vinci innovations are a smartphone design made in the style of Da Vinci's sketchbook drawings and some rad Da Vinci-inspired tattoos.
