French Tattoos That Mix 90s Nostalgia And Traditional Japanese Art

French artist Brindi mixes 90s cartoons and traditional Japanese art for an oddly satisfying fusion full of color and humor.

Brindi's interest in tattoos started at an early age. His parents and grandpa were all heavily tattooed, with his father even owning a tattoo and piercing shop.

"My grandfather is the one who first introduced me to Japanese traditional tattoo," he says. "He’s covered in geishas, hannyas, dragons and so."

Twisting things and using dark humor are making me happy and I have a blast doing it!

Brindi's work is inspired by pure childhood nostalgia. In addition to the Japanese influence, he's mixed in a lot of 90s and modern references like The Simpsons, pizza, cats, Nike sneakers, and donuts.

"The Japanese technique fitted my drawing style with its bold lines and flat tints. This graphic codification is also present in The Simpsons," he says. "As I am an absolute fan of the series, it was only logical to mix the two universes that count the most for me."

As for the color choices, he prefers to keep them spontaneous. Each tattoo is a fresh chance to reinvent himself artistically.
