Story about me published on the brand new blog for Paris Tattoo Convention

Recommended Posts

My friend Céline Aieta interviewed me about collecting tattoos and my photography project tied to that, when we both got tattooed by Guy Le Tatooer in Toulouse this March. She is running the new, all year 'round-blog for the Paris convention, Mondial Du Tatouage.

Have a look:

It's all in french, but try google translate and it converts it to english pretty well.

Was fun to be a part of this!

Very cool! Congratulations. Damn, that back piece is insane!

Who did your friend's backpiece? It's stunning. (I'm sorry if this is in the piece and I missed it - my French comprehension isn't what it used to be.)

Yeah it's Guy. They started that with tattooing the lines and some of the black over the course of three consecutive days. Guy tattoos smaller pieces with opened 8 liner needles, and I think the lines on her back might be even wider. To get it in properly he goes really slow. You can see in the pictures the piece I have on my lower abdomen. I was surprised by how long it took to get all that ink in. I can only imagine the brutality of having the spine, ribs and ass tattooed over the course of a week end. Hats off to Céline for being mentally strong and braving that!

    • yep. 4-6 weeks before you really know what you've got.  post a link to the person who you're looking at for re-working it. 
    • I'd wait until it's healed so you actually know what it's going to look like before I start looking at having it "fixed." How exactly is the other artist going to "fix" it? I've seen more tattoos that look worse after they are fixed than better.
    • Hello everyone. So I got this rose tattoo two weeks ago. Still healing and I know I want to get it “fixed”. My issue with it is that while it looks like a rose you have to look hard to see it’s a rose. I have an appt. scheduled for April to have it worked on by a different artist (he did a pocket watch on my ribs last year that came out great). In meeting with him he said it lacks symmetry (which it does) among some other things, but he feels he can work on this. Looking for any advice. Is this fixable or is it a lost cause? If it’s not fixable then it is what it is, but Tully hoping for some input. Needless to say, I’ve been so bummed since I got because it didn’t come out how I would’ve liked. Thank you.
