Extraordinary Bio-Organic, Mechanical Tattoos
For a time the bio-mechanical and bio-organic tattoo theme was one of the most popular, and they still continue to be an attractive choice for those wanting to put something unique on their body.
I'm including the two styles for the purpose of contrast so if you're interested in these types of tattoos, you can see how they differ from one another.
My personal preference is bio-mechanical because I like the lines and machinery aspect of it. Some are done so well it appears the image is embedded right in the skin.
In some cases bio-organic tattoos can be inked in a similar fashion, but it has a more fleshy and muscular look than the bio-mechanic tattoos.
Either way, they're fascinating to look at even if you think they're a little too edgy or not the particular design you want to display.
Guide to Choosing Your Tattoo
Bio-Mechanical Back Tattoo
We'll start off the tattoos with a bio-mechanical back tattoo. This one has a lot going for it, and the detail work is fantastic. The various ways the image had to have shadow added is great, and the jagged edge of the machinery stands out nice.

Here is a good bio-organic tattoo you can measure against the bio-mechanical one above it, as they're pretty close to the same position on the body.
As you can see, the organic tattoos look more living and include the appearance of being inside the body naturally. The bio-mechanical tattoos, on the other hand, are more an imposition into the body.
Bio-Organic Back, Shoulder Tattoo
Another reason I'm not that fond of bio-organic tattoos is the usual inclusion of a lot of color. I'm more of a fan of darker images, shadow, and lines. But for those interested in color and tissue, they can work well, as shown in this brightly colored shoulder tattoo.
