Your job? I am a nursery assistant, I guard my daughter and two other children

Describe yourself in only one sentence : ” I am a contrary left-handed person, it is stronger than me; have I to annoy the right-handers ” Desproges.

Why do you have tattoos ? I suffered from morbid obesity during my adolescence, I drooled there. The tattoo was (and is always) a way to regain control of my body gradually and to assert myself. My fellow travellers, I find them in the course of my adventures, they show my state of mind or my fellings in a period of my life.

What is your interest in tattoos ? This way of expressing himself and of delivering a message without words

What or who is your artistic inspiration ? That depends on days

Who is/ are the Tattooist(s) who have stung you ? The first one was made by Podam in Colombes, the neko by Nils of Art Corpus, two others were drawn and tattooed by Kurv at La Maison des Tanneurs in Paris

What is the story of your tattoos (numbers, place, … ) ? The tribal dragon made when I was 18 years old represents as much for the independence as the revival that I lived at this moment. The neko is there to remind me that you should never forget the luck we have and that it is always necessary to keep head up and smile. Eileen was noted below, it is my daughter. G is for my man to whom I got married. Mon Cthulhu gentleman, it is my religious sign, beyond the fact that I am fascinated by the work of Lovecraft, it represents mu understanding that the life was not to set seriously and that let us be not tall and that we are hardly conscious of it. The suit is for highly-rated romantic and because …

The latest one the cat, represents my feelings now; retro and absurd.

When did you start ? after my 18th birthday

What was the reaction of your friends and family ? My mother put on a pullover when I told her for the 1st tattoo, she was so much amazed, I would always remember her face. Now she is tattooed a lot.

Your next tattoo ? I don’t know when, but I know that it will be the “fiancée of Frankenstein” on the top of my left arm.

What would be your definition of the tattoo ? I see the skin is as a book page; the life notes things there, me too

When you will be an old man/ old woman ? That worries me not anyway, I shall finish as the lady with the cats in The Simpsons
