This Guy Recreates Your Nostalgic Photos As Simple Line-Art Tattoos

Pigment Ninja, aka Alican Gorgu, is an Istanbul-based tattooer who translates memories into simple tattoo designs that are tastefully nostalgic.

Gorgu's process begins with a photo, which he reduces to its most simple form. Minus the facial features and finer details, Gorgu's designs capture the most prominent feelings attached to the memory.

The figures' postures explain more than finer details could.

"I try to understand people's emotions in order to turn sweet memories caught on photographies into simplistic yet meaningful tattoos," Gorgu says of his process.

His goal in translating the photos to simplified line-art is to condense the memory to its basic form. Details fade in our memories, but simplified outlines are left to stand in for the memory over time.

"I think it is important to focus in the essential, because it is what is the most precious and what is going to last," he concludes.
