Last year, I participated to the CNEAI art residency program. From my drawing body of work, I elaborated this social experiment called “The Tattoo Studio”. With a set of rules, the primer idea was to share my drawings in a different way. I wanted to think about the responsibility into the multiplicative process of art making. No originals, just copies made with permanent ink tattoos. You come to the show, nothing hang in the gallery space, you live out the art space with a Tattoo, for life.
After five performances I tattooed more than fifty volunteers. From Dallas to Paris, I’m proud today to come back in Réunion Island perform it at the Arthotheque de Saint-Denis. Here are few pictures from the last private collector peformance in Paris and the last attending at the Artotheque de Saint-Denis.

“Precious Stone” on Julia, our host today.
My local tattoo artist didn’t froze after a “cold” welcoming from the audience... He tattooed himself the “Skull” in between is own narrative.
