Biomech Leg Tattoo

Wow, I totally love this bio-mech leg piece by my old friend Chris Govier (at Dragon Ink in Swansea)… For the sharp eyed, you’ll also note that he has a skeletal leg tattooed on the other side!

  1. Amazing work. It’s one of the only biomech pieces I’ve seen that really looks REAL. I mean the skin almost looks like it’s naturally peeled away and that is his real leg.

  2. As someone who just got their feet x-rayed today, I’d like to see the other side!! This leg is particularly great as well.

  3. Awesome work… I love these kind of tats…. There was one dude I saw ages ago who had something similar but on his back… It was like the skin was braced open and you could see clockwork cogs inside… It looked Amazing

  5. OH MY GOD. that is bloody amazing! i love the stretched, torn skin, and the toes are so cool…

    i want to see the other leg!

  6. that’s a great piece, though i’ve seen something very similar a while back. i save good looking biomech because i’m going to be having quite a lot done on myself so i actually have the reference photo if anyone’s interested (though i may have found it on bme a long time ago if you really want to dig)

  7. I seriously thought “prosthetic” for a split second when I first saw this!

    I have to say, I think the ankle and foot are my favorite part — so intricate!
