This week’s technique will teach you how to use the Fibonacci spiral in your designs.
To wrap up his extended look at tattoo designs, this week Bert pays tribute to the classical Fibonacci spiral. By copying the classic spiral as a guide, he uses it to help plan the structure of his intricate flower design, creating slight variations of the same design throughout the piece to quickly build a repeating pattern. After placing the flowers in the proper positions, Bert scales and rotates them into an appealing layout, adding leaves and vines as background accents to provide the final touch.
