TATOUAGE ET PARTAGE

This association was created so we can share knowledge and information regardless of language barriers.

We found it essential to offer a place of exchange where tattooers from all over the world can present their work and their technique, and talk about their philosophy and how they view tattooing in a wider sense.

We want to preserve all this precious technical knowledge for future generations and avoid what sometimes happened with the work of too many classic painters. The finer details of their unique and defining technique wasn’t passed down, and even with today’s best tools, we have a hard time to unveil some of their mysteries.

Our country, as small as it may be, is blessed with many talented and influential tattoo artists, and we would love to give more creative and expressive freedom to those who may be limited in their work by the boundaries of their own technical knowledge in tattooing. We shouldn’t forget that in order to progress in tattooing, one must learn, hone and master a set of important technical skills. Talent and inspiration eventually come into the fold to really turn on the magic as time passes.

Both the Internet and the dedicated press have initiated valuable exchanges, but we feel that direct contact allows people to best feed on knowledge. I have always made a distinction between my job as a tattooer who delivers a paid service to a client and the notion of exploring a more artistic side of things that may not be so profit-driven. I think that both the craftsman and the artist can claim the same technical knowledge, and I find it necessary to master the basics of the trade in order to produce a piece that satisfies both your business and your artistic sense.
