After Boston designer Kirk Wallace’s father passed away from cancer and heart complications, Wallace decided to ink an impressive tribute on his arm. The designer took inspiration from his father’s wish to get a crop circle tattoo and immediately started sketching after the death.
The design features two crop drawings surrounding a field. The field has crop circles in it that form the word “Dad.” Wallace’s tattoo has a distorted perspective, with your view of the field flipping from horizontal to bird’s eye view. The distortion is a tribute to how Wallace’s dad felt that everything was sideways after bypass surgery.
Wallace’s tattoo features strong, simple and uniform lines. His design gives the tattoo a clean and structural feel, which lends itself to emphasizing the text in the crop circles.
