Biomechanical tattoos: examples of biomechanical tattoos

The combination of ripped human skin with mechanisms visible through it is what a biomechanical tattoo style is. It symbolizes the tremendous hidden capabilities of man. The owners of such tattoos effectively emphasize their rich inner world.

The history of appearance

The biomechanical owes its appearance to the appearance in the 80s in the United States, the science fiction genre of cyberpunk. His works describe technological progress and the development of computer technologies in the context of social stratification and cultural decline.

One of the founders of this trend was Hans Rudolf Giger, a Swiss artist, a prominent representative of the genre "hyperrealism". The talent of this teacher was appreciated by the famous Hollywood director Ridley Scott. Based on the developments of Hans Giger, the famous image of "Alien" from the movie of the same name was created. In 1980, Giger won the Academy Award for Best Visual Effects from the American Academy of Cinematography.

Biomechanics peaked in the early 2000s, when electronic gadgets and devices became an integral part of modern society. Widespread computerization has also helped popularize this trend.
