The only thing missing is a spot for an Auto 9

Michael from Kipod out in Tel Aviv sent in a recent bio-mechanical piece that he has recently put on a client.  What is so great about large scale bio-mech pieces like this is it really can show off a brand new way to look at anatomy.  We’re all familiar with how the terminator looked once his skin had been removed, but this piece goes well beyond what James Cameron came up with for his film.

The key things that make this piece stand out, other than the size, is how it almost seems to blend in elements of steampunk with Geiger like designs.  Hopefully this is just one piece of what has the potential to be a really cool suit.  If it is, you’ll probably see it here as it progresses.

So what do you think?  Should the other leg have a housing for the gun that Robocop had?

  1. the “at last” part wasn’t for you, just a reason to be proud, after all the shit wev’e been eating lately.

  2. oh wow very nice. it actually seems to be an addition on the ribs to existing work on the hip and thigh, which seems to be much more detailed and less stylized than the fresh work. i wonder if they were done by the same artist.

  3. Whatever, the dude that inspired Alien…would be bit confused by a man holding his pee pee…Do you see that? I mean, eww.

  4. That tattoo is totally awesome.

    I think Rob’s statement of “Hopefully this is just one piece of what has the potential to be a really cool suit” is in poor taste however.

    a) you imply that the current piece is not awesome (or perhaps that it’d be made more awesome if it were bigger – perhaps you’re right, but that aught not to be your judgement call).
    b) you impose your view of what should happen to the rest of the tattoo – surely it would be better to wait and see how things progress and post on that, rather than morph the current work into an advertisement.
