“It was very competitive (tattooing), and at the time you had to be a badass. You didn’t have to be an artist, you know, you had to be ready to fight with anybody who was gonna piss you off to get respect from your clientele.” – Tin-Tin
Tin-Tin is the central figure in tattooing in Paris, France, where he’s been working for more than 20 years. Tin-Tin’s legacy is a special one. His methods and ideas about the art of tattooing have grown out of years of experience and have never been subject to the flippant trends of youth culture.
