The end of the last century is characterized by the fact that technology harmoniously entered human life, and now serve as their integral part. Various mechanisms and devices allow people to save time, because they simplify life by performing and automating human work. With the advent of technology everything became somehow faster and more interesting, so it is not surprising that these trends are reflected in the art world, in particular became one of the independent styles in the tattoo. Biomechanics style is a modern representation of the importance of mechanisms in human life, symbolizing a new era in development.
Biomechanics are original body drawings, attracting not only beauty and realism, but also the professionalism of the master who created the picture. It is believed that the progenitor of biomechanics was an extravagant and unusual artist, whose name is Hans Rudolf Giger from Switzerland. It is known that he was very impressed after reading horror books by the American writer Lovecraft Howard. Trying to depict horror and nightmares, the artist created a new human face. The canvas depicted women and men composed of various mechanisms, pipes and plates.
Particularly popular was the painting "Hell's Angels" in which demons chased a motorcyclist - the emblem of modern bikers. The style of biomechanics gained particular popularity after the film "Alien" (1979), made on the basis of paintings by the Swiss artist. The new wave of biomechanics in tattooing got when the movie "Terminator" appeared. Many men wanted to make their look more brutal and masculine, using sketches of steel muscle and metal pipes instead of bones.
It is worth noting that the first tattoos did not impress with their beauty and realism, as they were created with the help of black color, the play of light and shades. Gradually the art of tattooing improved, drawings became more voluminous and detailed, and modern technology and a wide color palette allowed a higher quality of treatment of skin facets and tattooing.
Thanks to the gradual development modern tattoos made in the style of biomechanics have not just a beautiful, but also a realistic look, because the impression is created that a part of the mechanism attached to the bones and veins was really placed in the human flesh. Biomechanics is characterized by its complexity and attractiveness, it takes up to several dozens of sessions to fill in a high-quality image. When creating a tattoo it is important to carefully and correctly draw all the shadows and penumbra, highlights and contrasts, which requires qualitative selection of the color scheme and carry out as much detail as possible.
Men's tattoo biomechanics
As is known, the tattoos in the style of biomechanics have no hidden meaning or special significance, and are used as a symbol of the supernatural metal force and invincibility. Men with such tattoos look more brutal and manly, their image becomes bold and attention is accentuated on the greater physical capabilities of the owner of the tattoo. Choosing the right design can visually increase the amount of muscle and accentuate them.
Biomechanics is a special style that requires a large size in order to achieve the desired effect and to draw all the details qualitatively. Often men use their legs, particularly their calves, as a canvas. An important element of the painting will be the appearance of the skin, it may be absent, or the effect is created as if the body had been cut or burned to fit the steel mechanisms. The skin may hang down, bend, have bleeding wounds, or be pulled down by a steel bar. Spokes or other sharp objects that tear through the skin and stick out of it look just as beautiful.

Also, women's tattoos in the style of biomechanics do not do without hearts, stars, butterflies and other, familiar to girls attributes.
Not so long ago, images of saints on the skin became fashionable. The younger generation is exposed to this trend, because the Old Believers still consider it blasphemy to draw holy icons, angels, even wings on their mortal bodies, as they are considered part of the divine beginning. Think about it, can a sinful person wear the wings of an angel on his back? But for many the image of saints on the body is a tribute of respect and gratitude. Such tattoos are believed to protect and safeguard their wearers.
One of the most common choices is the design of the Virgin Mary, a symbol of purity, hope and love. For some people, this is a very relevant figure in their lives, as it is the one they turn to when problems arise throughout their lives. For this reason, the Virgin Mary is considered the most powerful amulet against all adversity. It is she who can comfort those who seek help.
