Alien Anatomy!

This stunning tattoo that makes me think of some sort of alien anatomy, the “musculature of Mars” or something, was done by Graven Image Tattoo (facebook.com/gravenimagetattoo or gravenimagetattoo.com) in Mountain View, California. Paco Dietz has a number of pieces in his portfolio that are intelligent hybrids of colorful biomechanical with Giger-esque (amusing trivia — my spell-checker wants to turn that into “grotesque”) or even dieselpunk influence as well, creating his own unique contribution to the tattoo lexicon, but this has to be one of my favorites both because of its sci-fi appeal and because of how well it must move with the body.

Be sure to zoom in and admire them at full size.
