Swiss artist and designer H.R. Giger passed away in May 2014 and lots of tattoo artists are mourning him.

Giger's incredible imagination has given life to an haunting world where horror, sexuality and science fiction were colliding. Working for movies but also rock musicians, he inspired generations of fantasy lovers and aspiring art innovators.
Inhabited with futuristic witches, demons and monsters (the most famous of them is of course the creature he created for movies 'Alien'), his nightmarish dark art couldn't have suited more realistic black and grey tattoo artists with a crush for horror.

But he is most importantly the father of the biomechanical aesthetic, pioneer of the intricate mix of anatomical and gory details with technical and hyper realistic metallic structures that has soon developing as one of the most popular tattoo style, especially for men.

Giger's biomech, with his artistic designs and female figures, are coveted by many fans, men and women, and often tattooed. It requires skills and talent to equal this true master, but many tattoo artists have succeeded it.

If you want to pay a tribute to H.R. Giger or just looking for breathtaking ideas, here is a collection of 35 epic Giger-inspired biomechanical tattoos.
