Summer, uncovered skin and the desire to show off. Why not show a beautiful tattoo? Today we are talking about biomechanical tattoos, which let art enter the world of sketches on the skin, ensuring a huge success among lovers of the genre. An arm, a shoulder, a leg, an ankle, a foot. Almost every single part of our body, even the head, is the white canvas suitable for a tattoo. In particular those biomechanical, a new style in vogue in the last period that has given way to a profusion of photos and images in the network that show bodies adorned by these very special drawings. This meant that the tattoo artists themselves adapted to the huge demand by updating their techniques. But what are biomechanical tattoos?

What is the biomechanical tattoo?
The biomechanical tattoo is nothing more than a three-dimensional tattoo, which is a 3D tattoo that differs from normal skin designs because they enjoy showing a hypothetical mechanical layer underneath the dermis. The skin in this sense appears to be cut almost to want to show off what is hidden from it in terms of bolts, gears and mechanics in general. The tattoo that makes robotics the part of the body on which it is drawn. In short, it makes us bionic men / women. For fans of the genre, a real work of art. Especially if you like mechanics, this could be the tattoo for you. Do you know Will Smith in "I, robot"? Here, today the actor's mechanical arm could be yours. Obviously not real but only designed on your skin.

A new fashion
When the world of technology takes over, even tattoos are innovated and become biomechanical. Since the social media have been filled with images that represent bolts and gears, the biomechanical tattoo has become the new fashion, which shows a part of our bionic body, playing to show flaps of torn skin to show what we hide. Despite the call to new fashions, biomechanical tattoo lovers are still less than lovers of normal and traditional tattoos. The 3d tattoo makes art extreme, making the design extremely real. The tattoo will seem authentic and really exist on the part of the body in which it is located, creating a strong visual and aesthetic impact in the observer. Often we are faced with images so real that you will have the instinct to direct the hand towards the tattoo to touch with your hand.

The biomechanical tattoos are real and authentic and play on highlights and shadows giving the design a very real aspect. The decisive role in the final result of the work of art is played by the ability to elaborate the necessary nuances and the choice of the most suitable subject for the genre. That's why tattoo artists become real masters of their work.

The best subjects for three-dimensional tattoos are animals, such as spiders and scorpions, that best lend themselves to this technique; among these 3D tattoos, biomechanical ones give preference to everything concerning mechanics. These tattoos are inspired by the works of Hans Ruedi Giger, Swiss painter and a true film special effects artist, such as the Oscar for the film Alien. Tattoos become popular in the nineties, but today they are really widespread. Mechanical arms, bolts, gears: the streets are now full of bionic people.

So go free to the biomeccanic tattoos, but paying attention to professional tattoo artists. Once the drawing is done, it is difficult to go back, so precision must be a prerogative for an optimal result. Maybe check the tattoo artist's work before offering your canvas / skin for the design.
