How far can one line go? Berlin-based tattoo artist Mo Ganji (previously here) makes a living out of testing that very possibility, and has become a master at bending and weaving single lines into strikingly coherent images.

Though he only began his tattooing career in 2014, the Iranian-born Ganji has managed to carve out a unique identity for himself in a short period of time with his minimalist approach. "Everything here comes from the same energy," he told the Washington Post about the concept of single-line drawings. "Everyone is one. One continuous energy that just goes and goes and goes." He knows a thing or two about simplifying life - he gave up a successful corporate job to pursue his passion for body art, making his craft all the more sincere.

Mo Ganji lives and works in the German capital, but adoration of his designs has spread worldwide, and his Instagram page now boasts an impressive 286k followers. Check out some of his latest work below, and prepare to be inspired.

the extra line is just perfect... it doesn't look like excess, and don't reply and say, it isn't because I am clueless, okay?
