Charlie le Mindu, this outstanding young man, you necessarily know him . He is fascinated, transcent by the hair. He makes the haute coiffure. Parades, exhibitions, happening, or still knot in lady Gaga’s hair or the wig of Raiponce for the parade of Disneyland … you saw one day his work.
When his PR suggested us meeting him during one of its exhibitions in a gallery of the Palais Royal, we did not hesitate. To discuss with this creative, overexcited character, to photograph its atypical tattoos, the desire was too strong!
Thus meeting is taken and here we are in the face of this French that the whole world tears away. Charlie is extravagant but shy also, and very moving. He likes speaking about his work, then jumping from a subject to the other one. He does not speak very often his tattoos, which he does not nevertheless hide. Some are impressive (those on eyelids, especially when he tells the technique to reach … there), but all are funny. The signature of Joel Robuchon, the caravan made freehand … and he showed us until the most intimate, which we shall keep for us! No address either of good plan for a tattooer, they were all made by friends, during evenings, just for the funny to mark the moment or the desire for the moment … we did not too much dig the question by concern of discretion.
You will have noticed it, just the once will not hurt but we present you a portrait without the interview. This meeting was very particular and Charlie hates to give interviews. And we would have it’s a pity found not to share this shooting !
