Biomechanical tattoos first became popular during the 1980s and have been continuously evolving ever since. For those of you who may not be familiar with biomechanical tattoos, then let me give you a brief explanation of what they are. Biomechanical tattoos shows the synthesis between the flesh and a machine. It often involves using a three-dimensional rendering to showcase the impossible, mechanical flesh peering out from underneath your skin.
Imagine a tattoo that shows your skin tearing away and revealing mechanical rods where your tendons should be, or metal plating where there should be flesh.
These are just two examples of biomechanical tattoos and the variations that can be done on this theme are almost endless. The colors that can be used on these tattoos can also be quite impressive. There are new tattoo inks that have a fantastic metallic look to them and can lend themselves considerable to the development of your new tattoo.
So, if your looking for a truly unique design, then consider getting a biomechanical tattoo design. These tattoos can show the world what you are really made of. They can show the world all your gears, levers and pistons. And with emerging artistic techniques, these tattoos can appear more realistic than ever.
