Super quick Paris tat tips?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys -

I am very suddenly in Paris for a few short days. I arrived this morning (it's almost 1p on Thurs 2/28 here) and I leave early Monday morning. I would looove to take to the opportunity to get tattooed while I'm here!

I had two days notice for this trip, so I emailed a few places acknowledging that the *very* short notice I was giving would make it unlikely that there were any appointments available, and of course all of the artists were booked, which is what I expected, but if you don't bet, you can't win, right? Had to give it a try :).

Sooo any local peeps / persons in the know / anyone have recommendations about some good walk-in shops? Any suggestions at all?

Let me know if you do! I appreciate it any and all help!

Thank y' kindly, forum folks -

Val

Tin-tin was the first person I emailed! They are all booked up!

My sister lives here, so next time I actually plan a trip I will plan ahead, with plenty of notice, and get some damn good tattooing.

Thanks Brock! I remember you mentioned you were thinking of starting a blog - how's that going? (off topic sorry!)

I knida thought you would check there first. Any respectable collector would.

Off-topic: The blog is still something I am thinking about. I have had a bunch of input and feedback that I am really grateful for. Right now, I am focusing all my efforts on other things. When I think about the time and energy commitment involved, I start to realize that I can't provide the amount of respect and class that I want to. There is no way I would ever put something out there and not put 100% of my energy into it. The tattoo world doesn't need my opinion and the only way I can see doing it is if I can bring something that isn't already out there.

I have really enjoyed your contributions on LST, please let me (and all of us!) know when/if that blog (or other tattoo related writing project, eh?) gets started. I am writer too, I'm also looking for a more constructive, informative and unique way of adding to the dialogue - end story: i get where you're comin' from ;).

Thanks for the kind words @beez. I really appreciate it. If a blog happens, I will for sure let everyone know.

@beez Have you considered Frith Street Tattoo ? I think it's around 2hrs to London by train .

Frith Street Tattoo | World famous Frith street tattoo, custom tattoos situated in the heart of Soho, London. Walk ins welcome!

I would love to pop over to Frith Street, but I am only in town for a few short days to see my sister, and unfortunately our schedule does not allow it! It is on my list and I will absolutely get there at some point - just not this trip. :)

I scored an appointment with Fred at Tribal Act tattoo for tomorrow!!! :) :) :)

Your suggestions have been aces so far - thanks again!

What about stephen chaudigis or however u spell his name?

I haven't heard of him - I'm glad to have a new artist to learn about though! Thanks @MoistTowelette!

Googled it and it looks like the proper spelling is: stephane chaudesaigues. :)

    • I'd still call your doctor and ask their opinion.  I'm betting that they might advise against it, you know docs and liability.  But, if I were in the same position, really wanted it and was in good health, I'd probably go ahead and do it. My wife's an RN and I just asked her.  She said that she wouldn't think it would be a problem as long as you keep any appendectomy incision bandaged and clean your tattoo as recommended.
    • Hey everyone, I just had a laparoscopic appendectomy 8 days ago. Everything went well. There were no complications. Normally I wouldn't consider getting tattooed for awhile due to possible immune system problems. The thing is, one of my favorite artists is in town next weekend. He moved from Mass to Brooklyn and if I don't go see him next week I may have to wait a year or so before he's around again. I just want to get a small piece of Dan Higgs flash on my arm nowhere near the site of the surgery. Do you guys think this would be ok or am I putting myself in danger? I know people are going to say "ask your doctor" but I'd like the advice of people who actually have and know about tattoos. Thanks in advance. 
    • Hey @Decay You have a lovely new tattoo.  Tattooing isn't science, it's art and you can't set a clock by how long a tattoo will take. Your artist, who I assume you trust to tattoo you, will always give you a best guess. It may take longer; it may take less time.   You do realize how much goes into tattooing, right? Your artist has to come up with a design, a piece of art, from whatever concept you have in your head and translates that into a tattoo on your skin. There's design, drawing, and setup among other things that happen way before the needles hit your skin. If you feel like you are being ripped off over what you think is 30 minutes, you need to think long and hard if tattooing is for you. Enjoy the ride! Let go a little and you will have a better experience.  I have never seen a menu of prices and that concept will not serve you well on your tattoo journey. Where do you live where you haggle over everything? And I really hope that you tipped your artist.
