Take a closer look at some of those tattoo designs this year, there are more of them representing mechanical parts that appear to be working just under the surface of the skin. In fact, the bio-mech tattoos are nothing more than the offspring of biomechanical art, which is basically a modern form of art.
With this style art, however, the human anatomy is depicted by way of body ink in the form of moving mechanical parts. Joints and bones within the body are being represented in the form of working machinery, such as gears, pistons, and switches.
The tattoo artist creatively draws the skin being pulled apart to reveal these moving parts, some of which have some very unique meanings.
The Power Within
Some people just have a drive that is unrivaled, they are the first to show up for a job and the last to go home. Not only are they passionate about what they do, they seem to have a drive that is impossible for mortals to compete with.

The Strength in Numbers
Some who prefer the bio-mech tattoos like to show off their physical bodies because of all the hard work that has gone into developing their physique.
For those with huge muscles on their arms and legs, the bio-mech tattoos represent hard work, something that takes place below the surface that no one sees that results in that toned body.
The moving machine parts can also remind the wearer there is still work to be done, and that by working like a machine will get them to their eventual goal. Hard work, determination, persistence, and commitment, are all the positive attributes of these type tattoo designs.
