For Design Geeks: Old School Tattoos That Pay Tribute To Famous Typefaces
By Dorothy Tan, 06 Jan 2017
You may think that you love typography, but do you love it enough to get tattoos of your favorite typefaces?
Based in São Paulo, Brazil, designer Will Jr. has created a series of temporary tattoos that feature well-known typefaces, including Helvetica, Garamond and Futura.
Inspired by old school tattoo artworks, each of these designs consist of a single letter that is surrounded by decorative elements like floral motifs—the name of the typeface is spelled out on a banner placed across the letter.
For instance, the Raleway tattoo features the letter ‘C’, while the Playfair one is built around the letter ‘D’.
