Origami is an art form that rarely gets the recognition it deserves. While its origins are some what murky, we’re pretty sure the term “origami” originated in Japan during the 6th century when Buddhist monks introduced paper to the country. It’s common belief that various individual paper folding techniques were all swept into one category which we now know as origami.
We’ve all dabbled in the ancient art of paper folding at one point in time or another. Mostly paper airplanes during math class, love letters that needed to be properly concealed, or maybe even an origami crane if you had the patience and know how.
Nowadays just about anything you can dream up can be created using origami. Even tattoos in a sense. In this article we’ll take a look at some of the best examples of origami tattoos from around the world. Enjoy!
