In the past week, a big event happened to the gaming circle. After waiting for more than 50 years, the long-awaited “Cyberpunk 2077” is finally on sale! Steam “Cyberpunk 2077” has more than 1 million simultaneous online users, which is more than twice that of GTA5. It is the fourth in the history of Steam’s simultaneous online users and the first in the stand-alone category.
“Cyberpunk 2077” is a role-playing game developed and produced by CD Projekt RED (CDPR), the developer of the well-known game “Witcher” series.
The story happened in a dark, corrupt, technologically advanced future world. It has both open-world elements and RPG mechanisms. It means players will enter the dark future of 2077-a world, where advanced technology has become both the savior and the curse of mankind. In addition to the game screen that burned the graphics card, there are also those tattoos on the game characters.

The trend of the whole earth is evolving all the time. Fashion is like the change of emoticons, which will never be enough. Cyberpunk feels the beating of modernity in the nostalgia of short history.
It is like oil floating on water, a combination of psychedelic surfing on the web and past memories.
After long-term development, cyberpunk has become a subculture and literature can not limit it. But fully penetrates many fields such as animation, movies, games, art, and architecture.
“Anything can be cyberpunk” has also penetrated into tattoo art.
The future world, social decline, barbaric ASCII code tattoo
ASCII(American Standard Code for Information Interchange, American Standard Code for Information Interchange) is a computer coding system based on the Latin alphabet, mainly used to display modern English and other Western European languages. It was invented in the 1970s and is still popular on online chats, forums, and websites.
For 31-year-old Cypriot tattoo artist Andreas Vrontis, ASCII is not just a simple 95 characters, but the most important form of his tattoo art.
This kind of technological art also made a tattoo artists enthusiastic.
Vrontis has always been fascinated by ASCII art. So a few years ago, he began to try to incorporate digital art style into realistic tattoos. Vrontis has been tattooing for six years and he completed his first ASCII tattoo in 2015, a portrait of John Lennon.
When he needed to create a tattoo template, Vrontis did not completely rely on any professional ASCII art software, because the results were not as good as most people thought.
Vrontis said: “I found that the amazing thing about this technology is that it can produce a new understanding or perception of real things. A more traditional tattoo may be an accurate and true way to express things.”
ASCII code tattoo will be one of the most complex tattoo techniques in the world, and it may become popular among the general public in the near future.
Weapons, upgrades. Implants and high-tech gadgets
There is a girl on YOUTUBE who tried avant-garde technology-style tattoos on the back of her head a year ago.
This kind of decorative tattoo has no specific theme or pattern, but the unique design always makes people shine. Its mission is to make the human body look more mechanical and futuristic.
This kind of tattoo with a sense of technology perfectly interprets the mortal body’s desire for technological modification of prosthetic limbs.
The large area of color blocks is arranged in an orderly appearance like mechanical armor, forming a strong contrast with the skin.
The most beautiful machinery is the most error-free thing.
This mechanical transformation armor is tattooed as if the weapon can be transformed in the next second.
Another alternative form of electronic waste substitute the circuit diagram-like tattoo design.
The physical and electrical standardized symbols connect the components.
The arm is implanted with small equipment, inductance coils, reactors, etc…
Glitch Art pursues the unique beauty brought by “fault”.
For example, when some electronic devices such as TVs and computers fail. The visually displayed broken and defective images will distort in color, just like when we were young and crazy about TV screens.
Recently, this trend has also spread to the tattoo circle.
Visually, the picture becomes a broken, flawed image. They not only represent imperfections but also mean accidents and changes. Each failure is like a re-creation that breaks the norm.
This design style is not improvised. It comes from unexpected image errors in the imaging technology of electronic devices. This kind of wrong graphics has a unique style charm.
The emerging mainstream of the virtual world, with a strong sense of formal tattoo art style.
It covers Internet culture and retro electronic technology as elements, conveying the respect and fascination for the electronic age.
Cyberpunk (Cyberpunk) spirit, a satire on post-industrial technology, new era pop music, and pop culture
Surreal graphics, rough animation, glitch art, classical sculptures, character landscapes, animated images in the 80s and 90s, mosaics, electronic elements… Fusion, distortion, and disintegration have become these crazy things.
Perhaps one day in the future, we will abandon the art of tattooing, and we can have the “tattoo” we want by just changing the body part!
