Some of you probably wandered here after seeing the featured image for the gallery with no idea what “steampunk” is. You were simply drawn as if by some sort of siren call of tattoo badassery, and that’s okay.
Steampunk is a subgenre of science fiction that is largely inspired by the industrial steam-powered machinery of the 19th century. It essentially hypothesizes what would the world be like if human technology new advanced beyond steam-based technology. If everything remained steam powered, what would technology look like today?
The genre was largely popularized by the fictional work of H. G. Wells and Jules Verne. It has steadily grown in popularity, especially during recent years, and has spawned an entire cult-like fandom.
Even if you’re not a fan of steampunk fiction, it’s hard to deny its aesthetic appeal. These tattoos look badass by every standard imaginable, and we’re sure steampunk and non-steampunk fans alike will appreciate them equally.
