I think it's fairly safe to say that we'd have no bio-mechanical movement in tattooing if it weren't for the art of H.R. Giger, so it only seems fitting that he's paid homage to the art-form with his "Tattoo Mechanoid" sculpture and ring.

Both pieces are based on a 2001 drawing from his series "The Professionals" the 5"x6" sculpture features a hand clutching a 2.5" sterling silver tattoo machine, which it's ready to apply to its own leg (an time-old tradition of any apprentice or fledgling tattooist).  Cast in brass and finished with an acid bath for a unique finish, the sculpture sits atop a 6"x6"x1" base which features Giger's distinctive Alien Crest and an etching of his signature.  The pieces are available in a limited edition of 500.

For those who would rather wear this beautiful image, there's also a one-size-fits-all ring, cast in sterling silver.
