7079 tattoo machine. Back to story!



Ladies and Gentlemen, I'm super proud to announce you the coming back of the 7079 tattoo machines. We had done some different machines with the machine builder Marv Lerning and stopped the story after being copied by a chinese company. Whatever, 3 years later, we're going to make a few more for some closed tattoo artists friends...
Here is one, designed and engraved by myself and hand built in New Zealand by Marv...
More to come in a few weeks...

Gift of the day: the most expensive cup of wine on earth



Last saturday, I was working at the bar during the tattoo convention of La Roche sur Yon, organized by Black Pearl, the shop I work with... And late at night, a guy came to me, asking for a cup of wine. 
He told me he had no money but he was so thirsty that he gave me one of the machines he's building as a trade... So, if you recognize yourself, PLEASE write me back, just to be sure it is still a trade/a gift/ or a hard hang over consequence! ahahaha!

Tattoo of the day in france with Earl from Texas.









Earl took a few flights and trains to find me, hidden in the big west of France... I spend time at home for a few days before leaving again... Earl came from Austin, Texas and asked me an abstract arm-sleeve. Done in one day. Not the easiest to do. Thank you to him!!!

Gerald is a neighbour. He came from Nantes and he is just a fantastic non human silk screen printer/artist.

Good Bye Berlin!

Here it is, I'm gone from Berlin. I was not there for 3 years now and it's been so great to be in town again!
Of course, I would like to thank all my customers who came sometimes from very far away; and also the great people I've been working with:
Linda, an amazing new talented tattoo artist. You can visit her brand new blog here. I really hope to be able to introduce her in France soon.


Kostek was here too, spending time for a few days.


And of course, the headmaster in his place: jef.


All the super best to Marie and my old friend NICOsbrau,


 and Seb & Franck, 


and last but not least, to Sara Rosenbaum....


Hope to be back soon.
Life is a gift.


definitely.

In Berlin now / part 12 / another collaboration with Dana Engfer













Dor travelled from Israel for being tattooed by me in Berlin. As he is a very closed friend to Dana Engfer, this berliner artist that you saw on some posts on this blog, he's asked her to do this work in common with me too. You can visit her website here! It was a very great day! thank you to Dana, Dor and Carsten for that cool time!
