A bio-mechanical tattoo is a body art that melds some parts of the body by use of a machine to form a tattoo imagery of robotic or machine parts. Part machine, part man, this type of tattoo reveals the inner human biological body makeup.
The reason behind the popularity of these tattoos is that they are quite interesting in terms of design elements, which trace their roots into mechanics and robotics. What makes bio-mechanical tattoos even more interesting and eye catching is the creative use of colors and intricacy of design featured in these designs. In fact, these tattoos have so much in terms of variety that every tattoo can be different from the other, with the right permutations and combinations being used to create something unique to the taste and preference of the bearer.
Biomechanical art was popularized in 1979 when Swiss artist H.R. Giger designed the alien creatures in the 1979 feature film Alien.
After the popularity of Ridley Scott’s 1979 movie Alien, tattoo artists began tattooing images taken directly from the movie, and from artist H.R. Giger’s Necronomicon series. As the biomechanical tattoo art style became increasingly popular, tattoo artists such as Guy Aitchison and Aaron Cain began designing their own original, biomechanical art, creating one of tattoo’s most popular contemporary tattoo art movements.
