Often a tattoo is meant to express the “inner you.” Some people may feel that in this modern age a modern style tattoo is in order. Nothing can be more modern, if not downright futuristic, than a “Bio-Mech” or biomechanical tattoo.

A biomechanical tattoo is a form of body art that melds the human you with machine in the form of tattoo imagery of machine or robotic parts. Part man, part machine, the biomechanical tattoo peels the flesh away to reveal the inner mechanical workings, steel, wires and gears, that make you tick.
