All my various tattoos

Tattoo artist ParisTattoo art Paris I have been tattooed for a long time now, they are the symbols of my personal rights of passage, my next steps into the great unknown, accompanying me along the way. Water, anchors, cherry blossom and the words of a Joni Mitchell song that mean a lot to me, remind me of what I want to be. In Paris, I have two favourite places to go to get tattooed. The first is Hand in Glove, where the poised and super talented Romain Pareja tattoos with old school precision. Having learnt alongside the famous tattoo artist Tintin, he is a fully fledged influence in the art of tattooing with a real goodness of heart and warmth that his team (Benoit, Fabrice and Hugo) all posess too. This whole team created my anchor tattoos and all contributed so thank you guys!
