Khalil's Organic Biomechanical Arm

One thing regular readers may notice is that I tend to prefer singular tattoos, as opposed to larger "concept" pieces. This preference is what you see illustrated here on Tattoosday.



However, once in a while, I see work  that, although atypical of our content, is irresistible.



Just check out Khalil's sleeve, which I captured one day after work in Penn Station:





Representing thirty-two hours of work by Mike Boissoneault at Black Lotus Tattoo Studios, in North Kingstown, Rhode Island, Khalil explained that this vision represents a spin on a biomechanical design, "but more organic".



To him, in a world in which people are becoming less human, this tattoo reminds him to be human.



Here's a "fresher" shot from the Black Lotus website:
