  1. >Li (Chinese: 理; pinyin: lǐ) is a concept found in neo-Confucian Chinese philosophy. It refers to the underlying reason and order of nature as reflected in its organic forms.

    Examples of how we can see Li visually include wood grain and the patterns in animals’ fur. Your tattoo reminds me of this. A human fingerprint would be another example of Li, which is probably why a couple people have made that comment.

  2. You can still see the original tattoo tho,
    This is a perfect example of black out tattoos not always being the best to cover up especially if not done right

  3. I don’t understand the hate. I think it looks really fucking good. Everyone has their own taste and I can confidently say I’ve seen tattoos that look WAAAAAY worse than what people perceive this as.

  4. Absolutely in love with this type of organic black work. Whoever op, just fyi this sub isn’t particularly fan of this type of work (I don’t blame them) I always say that something must not work properly in our brains to be in love with blackouts and organic black work rofl. But I’ve seen them critique harshly Gakkin’ work lmao. Just saying this so you don’t get discouraged by the comments and don’t start thinking you made a bad choice.

  5. To answer a question a few people asked: it’s not supposed to be anything specific. I like tattoos with bold black lines, and this is what Kel drew for me after we discussed various options.
