From Lissajous to Pas de Deux to Tattoo: The Graphic Life of a Beautiful Loop
(Proceedings pages 295–302)
The author re-implemented of a custom drawing technique—developed
nearly 30 years ago for large pen plotter artwork—in order to redraw
an aesthetically tuned, calligraphically widened, compound Lissajous
figure, only to find it rendered a third time in an unusual medium
for mathematical art: as a tattoo.
