22 Fascinating Giger Tattoos

jentheripper in Tattoo Ideas

Last year, Hans Ruedi Giger passed away. We paid a tribute to this incredible artist with a collection of gorgeous Giger tattoos, inspired by his numerous paintings, sculptures and, indeed, his most famous creature, Alien. In my article, I've tried to express the best I can how H.R. Giger was important for tattoo art and tattoo artists, explaining that he was the inspiration for biomechanical tattoos. But one of my friends, a talented tattoo artist, told me: "You didn't succeed in gasping how this Genius has changed our lives and how he influenced our art in so many levels..." Of course I didn't. I am not a tattoo artist, I haven't experienced the evolution of tattoo art since its beginning. But from my humble view, I can only admire the thousands of incredible pieces of art that were made by skilled tattoo artists on their clients, fans devoted to the endless imagination of H.R. Giger. As a teen, the discovery of his art was a serious artistic slap in the face, that certainly guided me into the world of tattoo art, but not only. And that's true, words fail me to describe how Giger changed the face of tattooing. But what I can do today, is to allow fans of biomechanical and horror, of gorgeous tattoos and of art in general, to see some of the best tributes that have been inked on skins, to celebrate this missed master. So, if you didn't have enough with our previous article, you can admire more dark, fantastic and breath-taking Giger tattoos here...
