Tatoueurs : Noire Ink, Twenty Fingers, Santa Sangre & Nigs Tatoo
Under the Skin
Got an unbearably bare arm and a bursting desire for a tattoo? No worries, you could easily squeeze one in between a couple of traditional truffades and a few drinking sessions. The choice is truly yours in Clermont-Ferrand when the times comes to dream up your tat of choice. Yet the real question is, what type of tattoo do you really want, because each tattoo artist has their specialisation. If you’re a fan of ultra-realism, then Thomas Carli-Jarlier at Noire Ink studio is the man for you. He’s one of the biggest names when it comes to tattooing black and white portraits, with clients coming from the world over just to see him. Make sure to contact him well in advance for an appointment at his private studio. Another highly reputed parlour is Santa Sangre, where Lilou and Sylvain have been inking away since April 2014.
Once again, make sure to reserve in advance as their books are always full. The former specialises in graphic portraits, while the latter opts for biomechanical and realistic tattoos. If a duo isn’t enough, get a rendez-vous at Twenty Fingers, where works the trio of artists Lou, Guigui and Zouk. And finally, if you still haven’t found that special something, don’t forget that Nigz Tattoo in Place Delille is a freelance artist who’s always on hand with advice and a warm, friendly smile.
