Arun Kumar from United Kingdom on September 14, 2012:
Many thanks, I'd be thankful. I've started focusing on it and now I'm jealous of the style and design!
Richard Ricky Hale (author) from West Virginia on July 06, 2012:
Very well then. I always appreciate the feedback and if there is anything I could ever do, just let me know:)
WhydThatHappen on June 28, 2012:
Thanks, I'd appreciate it, but I've been trying to figure it out for so long that I finally came up with an idea. I've begun working on it and now I feel jealous of the design!
Richard Ricky Hale (author) from West Virginia on June 28, 2012:
*Alastar, thanks for coming by. First things that came to my mind, no lie:) I like them, very creative. Getting it tattooed, just not for me.
*WD Curry, no lie, I am impressed with all your work. You are very creative and artistic. Yeah, I get what your saying. It is so weird that it does that. Usually, if a style has been popular once, it will gain popularity again.
WD Curry 111 from Space Coast on June 24, 2012:
tlw - that is an improvisational pencil drawing that I did back in the early seventies . . . no computers, yet. In advance pencil drawings, the artist uses several pencils of varying hardness, not just a no.2 (HB). This one was done with six different penclils from a light 2h to a very dark 4b. There was a group of "underground" artists at school, and we were always trying to out do each other. I find it odd that a lot of the crazy stuff that was done had a limited market in the day, but now, it is mainstream in a way . . . scary.
Alastar Packer from North Carolina on June 23, 2012:
Man Ricky! These are the most artful, 3-D appearing, complex tats yet. What a style. Makes one think of the Terminator or something lol.
Richard Ricky Hale (author) from West Virginia on June 23, 2012:
WD Curry, that is an awesome picture. How do you create that? Do you have a special software or programs? I know you are a great artist as I have seen a lot of your billboards and other designs.
Richard Ricky Hale (author) from West Virginia on June 23, 2012:
*Lovedoctor, the tattoo artist on some of these did very good work. This type of tattoo needs to be done correctly and in detail. And yes, waxing chest hair must hurt like something awful:)
*Rosemay, thank you very much. It is always nice to be appreciated for your hard work, so thanks:) Good question. That is something you will have to think about in time. In my experience, if you are worries about this, get a tattoo on the arm, wrist, legs, shoulders, or back. These areas are less likely to be affected by weight gain and aging.
*Frank, I thought about you when I was doing these. I knew this would be a tattoo that you would possible like.
*WD Curry, thanks for the link. I will be sure to check it out in just a second. Thanks for you visit and comment also my friend.
*Nell, it is always great to hear from you. Some of them are quite graphic, so your not alone. It shows the great detail of the artist though. Vivid tattoos for sure.
*Hyp, thanks for the comment. Your not alone. These are not a popular tattoo choice by the long run, but some do like them. Personally, I wouldn't get one, but then again, maybe. I like the artwork on them though.
*Gypsy, as you say, they get crazier and crazier:) Great to hear from you. I do like all the colors in them, love the artwork, but they are not for me.
*WTH, I have seen quite a few of these lately. Sure enough. Seems to be a new craze with tree tattoos, at least around here. I will try to find some pics and load them in this article for you if you wish to check back with me. I always appreciate such support and questions. I would be glad to help.
*AE, your not alone Ruby. I am 50/50 on these and I like a lot of tattoos, so 50/50 is low for me. I can appreciate the art, but I would rather have a tattoo with meaning.
*Sueswan, you lucky dog you! I bet your going to have some fun:) Thanks for dropping by and I hope you have a blast!
*b Malin, always a pleasure:) Some of these art, but as you, I can appreciate the art in them. Certainly live up to their name. Hope you have a great weekend, see you soon.
b. Malin on June 22, 2012:
They almost look Scary, but so Creative, truly Awesome...and with a Name like "Biomechanical tattoos" they definitely live up to the Name!
Sueswan on June 22, 2012:
Another awesome hub on tattoos. These mechanical tattoos aren't my cup of tea.
Have a good weekend my friend. I am off to the Windsor Elvis Festival this weekend. :)
Voted up and awesome
Ruby Jean Richert from Southern Illinois on June 21, 2012:
Wow, I don't think i would want one of these. They look so steely and dark, but different strokes for different folks..I always appreciate the worlk involved in your tattoo hubs..Cheers
WhydThatHappen on June 21, 2012:
I have been trying to find some examples of what biomechanical tattoos would look like with a tree design, but can't find anything other than human body designs- can you help me out? Like a large, biomechanical tree design (a plant or flower design would still be helpful)- I'm having a hard time picturing how the design would flow, ^So I can't figure out how to draw it, but I know it would be epic in the bigger picture of my design idea
Gypsy Rose Lee from Daytona Beach, Florida on June 21, 2012:
Great hub Ricky. These are some of the craziest and most colorful tattoos I've ever seen.
Brenda Barnes from America-Broken But Still Beautiful on June 20, 2012:
Oh my! These are kind of creepy to me. I must admit I do not like them at all but some people do and can pull it off. As always, your presentation is great and I learned a lot. A thumb up for you and for the folks who can walk around with such powerful tattoos.
Nell Rose from England on June 20, 2012:
These are really detailed, I am not sure if they are for me though, they made me a bit queezy when I saw the leg bone ones etc! haha! what a light weight! but the details are amazing, and your info is great, cheers nell

WD Curry 111 from Space Coast on June 20, 2012:
These are wild. If I got one, I would use like this old drawing I did back in the seventies for a stencil.
BeyondMax from Sydney, Australia on June 20, 2012:
Oh, my! They are so real! (@Rosemay - I have this back-thought all the time, especially when I'm looking at the large areas covered by tattoos that kinda require muscle for a better result).
Frank Atanacio from Shelton on June 20, 2012:
my goodness these are so cool wow
Rosemary Sadler from Hawkes Bay - NewZealand on June 19, 2012:
Up and awesome, a great deal of work goes into your hubs which is always appreciated.
Some of these are very intricate and detailed.
I am wondering though what happens to the ones on the biceps as they age and the muscle sags or is lost, just an odd thought.
lovedoctor926 on June 19, 2012:
voted I meant
lovedoctor926 on June 19, 2012:
Vote up awesome and interesting! You have provided very good explanations as well.
Wow! So many different designs to choose from. The one on the chest is very artistic. That means, the guys must wax their chest. ouch! that must really hurt!
