Artist Love: Guy le Tatooer

It’s probably strange for most people to consider tattooing an art, but it is. Imagine having ink beautifully rendered on skin with steady hands, etched forever with a thin piece of metal and artfully designed to produce an exquisite result. Remarkable how this translates so wonderfully under the right artist.

So it comes as no surprise that i hold this guy in high regard for his AMAZING design and skill. Guy le Tatooer, a french tattoo artist, is truly gifted. I’ve had my fair share of tattoos, but i’m pretty psyched to see this guy’s amazing work. Check out a vid of him and his progress:

Guy le Tatooer’s detail and significant designs are such creations that he even has exhibits, like this one held last year in Paris.

Oh, to have a tattoo done by this guy is definitely in my list! Yet another reason to go back to France, eh? 🙂
