Tattoo

Ok chaps, I'm getting my next tattoo designed and I've decided to go for an engine-esque design with a biomechanical twist to it. I want something like the predator pic below, which is his earlier work, but using pistons, camshaft, pulleys etc

Anyone got any ideas ?

Re: Tattoo

Lol, nice one bud but none of you are helping :-) I need some ideas for the next tat, I've got something down on paper but it's gonna take me months of playing to get it right.

apologies for the late post, i've been off line for a while
