Aries Rhysing on geometric art, his family of artists and his new project

Early on in his career, Aries Rhysing heard many times that his style of art wouldn't transfer well into tattoos. But Rhysing persisted, and he has now mastered creating tattoos that incorporate the hypnotizing art of sacred geometry. Originally from Minneapolis and more recently living in New Mexico, Rhysing has been in Colorado for almost two years. He currently works at Sol Tribe, and is starting a project to donate the proceeds of his art to local charities. Westword caught up with Rhysing, who talked about geometrical art, his family of artists and his new project.
