Valérie Dumaine

Name/ nickname Valerie Dumaine

Where do you live ? Montreal

Your job? Fashion Designer

Describe yourself in only one sentence : Black, uncluttered, sober with a feminine touch

Why do you have tattoos ? Because I adore this art, it is a good way to assert being colored. I find that it is very personal the relation with our tattoos and when it’s done right, it is magnificent!

What is your interest in tattoos ? The previous question answers a little bit … That allows to reflect our personality, it is a beautiful artistic way of displaying. I find this beautiful

What or who is your artistic inspiration ? Le bauhaus, construstivisme, minimalisme, suprématisme….

Who is/ are the Tattooist(s) who have stung you ? Je ne connais pas trop les tatoueurs en général! je connais seulement ceux à Montreal….

What is the story of your tattoos (numbers, place, … ) ? My tattoo with inspiration ‘ Russian propaganda poster ‘ inspired me to draw my first collection ‘ Russian Disko ‘. So many people stopped me in the street to compliment me about my tattoo and I said to myself that something similar in printed matter on clothes could be a good idea! Otherwise, to part of that, I have not too much story about my tattoos. They represent the art which interests me when I wanted it. I had my 1st in 15 years and the last one, one year ago. Thus it has been more than twenty years since I am tattooed and I do not think that it was the last one.

Your favorite picture ? Artist ? Malevich, particularly his work of the black square on white bottom. Otherwise for the artist there are tons, but let us say Bowie

**Your site, blog, twitter, instagram, or other web stuff ** Vacancy well-deserved in the desert.
