Fibonacci tattoo designs are among the most interesting and aesthetic geometry tattoos. In mathematics, Fibonacci numbers represent an integer sequence in which each number is the sum of the two preceding numbers (0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, and so on). The Fibonacci sequence (also called “the golden ratio”) is named after Italian mathematician Leonardo of Pisa, credited with bringing the Arabic numeral system to Europe and introducing the use of the number zero and the decimal.
The Fibonacci sequence is stunningly abundant in nature. Although the Nautilus shell seems to portray a perfect Fibonacci spiral, it also appears in very diverse places such as the proportions of the human face, the shapes of many living organisms, the arrangement of branches of plants and the veins in their leaves, in the skeletons of animals, in the geometry of crystals or in the shapes of the galaxies.
In art, although it may not be very obvious, there is a strong connection between this mathematical sequence and the artistic compositions. The sequence is found in masterpieces such as Leonardo Da Vinci’s “Mona Lisa” and Salvador Dali’s “Leda Atomica”.
For tattoo artists and tattoo lovers, the Fibonacci sequence provides great inspiration for amazing tattoos. From the more minimalist to the most intricate designs, a Fibonacci tattoo is a tribute to mathematics and to the beautiful nature and its astonishing wonders.
Bellow, we selected the most artistic Fibonacci tattoo design and compiled a list for your inspiration. Enjoy!
