From Hawaii Tattoo Styles With Love: Biomechanical Tattoos

Our Waikiki Tattoo studio has a team of tattooists with years of experience (Tattoo Adam‘s been in the game for nearly two decades), celebrity clientele (Adam’s tattooed Mike Tyson, members of the Chicago Blackhawks, other Pro Sports figures and Marko Livingston‘s inked Rapper T-Pain), and they can do a little bit of everything from tattoo flash to custom tattooing styles, you’ll find what you’re looking for and more.

Including a bit of history…

This writer was curious about how the biomechanical tattoo style made it into tattooing.  Tattoo Adam did not disappoint as he pointed out a book on the shelf by Swiss artist, H.R. Giger, “That’s the guy.” He told me one day while he set up for another appointment.  Note: If you ever meet Tattoo Adam or have met him already you can see the biomechanical work he has had done on himself.

To satisfy the Cliff Notes mentality, biomechanical art is described courtesy of Wikipedia as:

“a surrealistic style of art that combines elements of machines with organics[1]. Rendered with distinct realism, biomechanical art expresses an internal fantasy world, most typically represented with human or animal anatomy where bones and joints are replaced with metal pistons and gears, but infused with muscles and tendons.”

Giger was tasked with developing the concepts and designs for the creatures from Alien.  That movie went on to become a smash success and Giger’s Necromonicon would become a hit in and of itself.  You can find all types of his sculptures for sale online and his books in shops all around.

You can check Tattoo Adam’s tattoos live and in the flesh at our Honolulu Tattoo studio, 434 Tattoo.  We’re open seven days a week from 10a-10p.  Stop on by for a free consultation and to find out about any deals we have going on.  Currently, tattooist Andy Burley is doing $50 off an hour, a Hawaii Tattoo deal you don’t want to miss.
