    My friend Matt who is known for getting rediculously stupid-but-funny tattoos is finally stepping up and getting into session work, and ddecided he wanted a biomechanical sleeve. JT (artist) has never done one of these before so were all anxious to see how this turns out, he did it all freehand on him with the good ol' sharpie and went drilling away. Here are the pics from session 1, more to follow soon.

    Yeah this week he was transitioning between shops that's the only reason why we were in a house. Next week will be back at the shop FTW!

    No offense to thread starter, I'm just making a point here and not taking the piss outta your friend/artist.

    Who's to say those needles or tubes are sterile? Yes they may come in sealed packages but I know that those packages can be sealed with a hairdryer. Shops have certificates showing they use an autoclave/statim to sterilize and seal their equipment. That's the major difference in getting tattooed in a house and in a shop.

    I completely understand where your coming from, he does have his own autoclave at his house though.

    Yea im actually the one getting this done. Its the "organic" biomechanical that were doing. At first i wanted to make my arm look robotic, but we decided that it was going to be too boring. This should turn out pretty good when its done. I have faith in JT in the work that he does. We have like 1-2 hours of line work left, then its on to 20-30 hours of color/shading. I cant wait for it to be completed. Ill make sure updated pics are posted.

    Isn't organic pretty much the opposite of biomechanical?

    No, from what I was reading, organic can be a type of it too. Me and JT are both new to the whole thing. So pretty much im calling it biomechanical now, but Im not sure how it will turn out as a complete piece. Hes going to have parts in there were you can see flesh, some tubing, and inside my arm. But for the most part, I told him it just has to look sick. Lots of color and detail. So once its finished, I have faith that it will look very crazy. Ill keep you all posted.

    I have a feeling Biomechanical will be like "tribal" in a few years.

    Congrates on the first large piece. Hope you put alot of thought into the decision! My first sleeve that I jumped into was biomech and to be perfectly honest I hate it...but that doesnt mean you will...I am just sayin. Keep us updated

    Here ya go. It was inspired by Giger who alot of people claim isnt really Bio Mechanics, it is called some other snazzy name I cant ever remember. I still just call it bio mechanics though.

    Thats awesome. I was going for that at first, make it look more robotic then anything, but we decided to do the organic biomech. Im actually getting some work done this week, ill post new pics once done.

    biomechanical seems to cover a broad range of style now apparently.
