Tattoos been the object for a long time of controversies at the healthcare professionals.
Customized tattoo: place(square) in the imagination…
By hundreds, by thousands, they push every year the door of the tattooers. Sometimes with a very strong envy(urge) mixed(involved) by fear and by apprehension but always with a will to print on their body of the marks(brands) of their personality. Small journey in tattooers’ lounge(show) which(who) have for the profession a true passion Ö Pushed the door of a workshop(studio) of tattoo, we are at once snatched by colored images, going of the graphics(handwrittingGeometrical on the suggestive, even dreamlike representational subjects: portraits or faces(figures) of mythical characters, animal motives, when they are not whole landscapes… So many tattoos and styles as tattooers
Vincent, whose workshop(studio) nests in Rambouillet, explains his approach of what was for him, at first, a will to translate the dream of people by drawing on the skin, but also a taste of the journey and the satisfaction to meet tattooers with whom he was able to have very fruitful exchanges. He(it) remembers his(its) rising passion for the tattoo and his(its) demand with an experienced tattooer: ” Learn me to tattoo.
Become a tattooer Paris, later, we shall see! “, the answer was. Inescapable test(event). Vincent tells. ” Having been in Amsterdam to establish(constitute) me my tattooer’s outfit, I began to tattoo one of my legs, but also a hen and even pig’s skin! And feeling(smelling) me more safe(surer) of me, I dashed with a public of tourists, on the Greek islands. The first one(night) Anybody whom I tattooed, and although I was not very satisfied with my work, was packed. His(her) friends appreciated and I began making for them small rather ornamental, tribal motives for style. The more I tattooed, the more I progressed and I tried(felt) a certain pride. It became a passion “.
Vincent says to himself “interlocutor” rather than executing desires of his customers. He(it) discourages those who want very commonplace motives, dolphin(heir apparent) or the other palm tree Ö Young people, between 15 and 25 years, undergo the effect of mode(fashion) and Vincent pull(entail) them towards more authenticity. But he has to slow down the minors(miners) (they have to have the authorization of their relatives(parents)) who dream be tattooed everywhere without being afraid of the needle on the skin.
Filip, on the surface of skin A two steps of the Mill of the Pancake, the Filipino, the graphic designer of formation(training), receives the future tattooed in a charming workshop(studio) montmartrois. She(it) welcomes her(its) clientele in a kind of lounge(show) which does not evoke at once its profession. His(her,its) library which will be source of inspiration for the persons who come be tattooed and leather armchairs invite in the break It is in a more intimate detail(room), where thrones a big mirror, a clinical divan and shielded from the glances, which Filipino presides(officiates).It is necessary to reassure, to be for the listening and to propose the graphics(handwritting) or the symbol or still the motive which corresponds to every candidate for the tattoo. Filipino often begins to draw with felt-tips on the body of her customer, in the place which he(it) indicates(appoints) determinedly. It is a way of approaching gently the definitive marking, that sometimes made fear. Filipino shows her tools and all the precautions which she takes to avoid every risk.Then she explains that she(it) ” draws on the surface of skin ” and that the sensation produced by the needle looks like more an itch accompanied with an impression(printing) of heating(warm-up) than a pain itself.
Besides, all the tattooers agree above, the tattoo makes more being afraid that of the evil. When the apprehension is the strongest, the tattooed person contracts, its breath becomes shorter and it is not pleasant. Quite the reverse, when the confidence(trust) and the relaxation are for the meeting, everything takes place well. She(it) studies ” the unique(only) cosmogony of the body of each “.
The tattooer can draw on the body of his customer with serenity. But because certain persons wrinkle either get out of breath, small breaks are welcome.
The skin of the women Ö Vincent admits that he prefers the skin of the women, finer. He tells to use his “pistol” (machine O’ Reilly to tattoo) as of a pencil. His(her,its) needle sinks of a millimeter into the skin, and, then, he(it) colours with natural pigments and in ink (who demand certificates of authenticity). He(it) finds monochrome tattoos More stable. Filipino, her, likes proposing black’s gradations, grey Ö Especially, if she(it) creates Polynesian graphics(handwrittings), kind(genre) lace, arabesque…
A tattooer deserving of this name applies to become known to his customer the technical problems which he meets if he tattoos in the places where the flesh is rare, because it is more delicate for the tattooer, more sensitive for the tattooed. The skin always resists, but according to its characteristics Besides the qualities of the skin to be tattooed, the artist tattooer lets know to the person who provides him with her body, that it is necessary to harmonize the proportions of the body and the tattooed motives. The skin, by its elasticity, made live the graphics(handwrittings) and modifies them in the course of weight gains, pregnancies, losses of weight, body-building, ageing Ö
Little by little The first demand of tattoo is generally translated by a small motive. It is in the second experience(experiment) that the tattooed becomes bolder. Some people dash into very big motives ( customs ) which cannot be executed at one time. It is in this ” big project ” that the complicity settles down: conscious to be only an intermediary, a tattooer Puts all his(her,its) know-how in the service of the desire of his(her) customer. But because he knows that the tattooed person will carry(wear) its mark(brand) for ever, he(it) has respite to refine his(its) style. So, tattooer and tattooed are strangely partner.
The population which addresses a tattooer is very diversified: teenagers, 25/35 the years which have the will to print on their body the marks(brands) of their personality, the persons in full maturity, little old age. There are those who really appropriate their body by drawing symbols or paintings(boards) on the skin by desire of Seduction, to embellish, but also, in certain cases, to hide a scar, a defect, a former(ancient) tattoo which lost its meaning; at some individuals, the tattoo is as a revival, a metamorphosis. For some still, it is about the collection of a lost sacralitÈ.
The erotic function(office) of the tattoo is not inevitably admitted, but it betrays itself by the choice of the tattooed zones: line of bosoms, nape of the neck, buttocks, near the sex, stomach, thighs, yard Ö The tattooer welcomes a history(story), happens the interpreter, then let the tattooed person leave(restart) with. Each has to stay on his own territory. Filipino speaks about certain transfers which take place. When she(it) tattoos the sex, it is complex. She must be watchful.Vincent agrees to tattoo a woman in the presence of the boyfriend of this last one. He admits that it is then easier, the tattooed person gives way more gladly to the tattoo. To undress is not always easy, the nudity is nevertheless the first act for the big tattoos or for the “secret” tattoos. Filipino admits: ” my tattoos, it is my perso gallery “. The unusual is of the part(party). Does not she see coming in her workshop(studio) of the legionaries, people reached(affected) by the AIDS and who are tattooed their number of Social Security?
The tattoo becomes banner.
