Steampunk Is the Final Frontier in Full-Blown Nerdery

Tattoo Ideas2 min Read

Whether you love it or it really grinds your gears, steampunk is an undeniably unique aesthetic, as seen through these steampunk tattoos.

There exists a world of gears and whimsy, hidden just beneath the surface of our own world. Decked in Victorian garb with alternate-future sci-fi accessories, groups of people congregate in themed bars and parties, brought together by their love of a nascent aesthetic — steampunk. But for the diehards, this is no mere aesthetic, it is a lifestyle.

There you have it, the anachronistic, retro-futurist beauty of steampunk in tattoo form. We hope maybe these pictures inspire you to throw on a
petticoat or a top hat and monocle and head down to your local steampunk bar to share some mead with other like-minded individuals. Or feel free to take the other route, and laugh at people enjoying things you just don’t understand.
