23 Fascinating Fibonacci Tattoos That’ll Hit The Mark

Trending Tattoos

Fibonacci was a medieval Italian mathematician who made a mark on the world with quite a few accomplishments. Fibonacci was, however, best known for the Fibonacci sequence which happens to be quite a popular tattoo motif, too. What’s the tea on Fibonacci tattoos, anyway?

Fibonacci tattoos are elegant, effortless, and *very* geometric. While they can carry many meanings, Fibonacci tattoos typically represent some sort of synchronization with nature – a strong alignment with the rhythms of nature, the cosmos, and the world at large. We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite Fibonacci tattoos to show you all the different meanings you can count on when you decide to bite the bullet.

When picking the perfect design for your Fibonacci tattoo, consider your personal preferences, as well as your tattoo artist’s strong and not-so-strong suits. A brushstroke tattoo, for example, can be a great way for you to stay on top of trends without committing to an abstract tattoo or a tattoo you don’t resonate with.
