Steampunk is an aesthetic I appreciate, even if I don’t wear it myself. There is a gorgeous intricacy to it, as long as it isn’t someone just gluing some gears on. I originally went looking for steampunk bat tattoos, but found surprisingly few. Click on the picture above to see the rest of Jason Corbett’s Steampunk Forms of Flight.
Here’s a full-color piece by Charles Berger.
There is a fine line between Gothic and Steampunk, because they both nod to the same era, but to me, there must be something of the mechanical if it is to be Steampunk.
This pocket watch straddles the line, but I gave it a pass because it is, after all, a watch.
Finally, the pièce de résistance, also from Things2Die4, this bronzed mechanical bat sculpture. Want.
