I'm afraid online ordering options for the cyborg flesh treatment have yet to make it to Amazon. In fact, should you want an anatomical anomaly tattoo so whiplash-inducingly realistic and infatuating it gets mistaken for professionally applied prostheses and makeup, you'll probably have to make a quick trip to Venezuela, where Yomica Moreno, the extraordinary tattoo artist responsible for these apocalyptic beauties, lives and works. Alternatively, you can stalk him out during his appearances at the Panama City Ink Fest (August 17 to 19, 2012), Denmark's Nordic Ink Festival (October 19 and 20, 2012), or Italy's Florence Tattoo Convention (November 2 to 4, 2012), and beg for a Terminator forearm, steampunk pec muscle, or tissue-exposed zip-up shoulder.

A perusal of Moreno's tattoo gallery illuminates his similar mastery of more traditional inkings, such as skulls, roses, famous faces, and celestial events, as well as his artwork of the pencil-and-paper persuasion.

For those dying to get 'borged-out for San Diego Comic-Con, or the Total Recall remake release, maybe try (after checking that it's not a gross copyright or intellectual property infringement, of course) spiffing up the highest res photo you can find of one of your Moreno favorites, and submitting it for custom temporary tattoo production. Sure, the quality will be only a fraction of the real thing, but it beats paying hundreds of dollars for a lesser artist to permanently F up your body from wrist to bicep trying to imitate Moreno's inimitable genius.
