Brilliant Tattoos From Paris That Look Like Living Paintings

For Paris-based tattooist Métamo, tattooing is the key to warding off sorrow and, instead, celebrating the positive points of being alive. Art keeps him going and he wants to share that with the world.

Métamo takes his name from the word metamorphosis, inviting his audience to consider how they are transformed by the people they connect with throughout life. His work is abstract and lively, like a painting on skin.

To create these pieces, he first meets with the client and gets to know them. He listens to their stories and writes a poem about it, then begins translating those stories into abstract shapes and symbols.

Thus, each tattoo is highly personal and specific to each person.

“I find poetry in imperfection and I fuse sensitive elements together to create new living forms,'" he says. "They can look weird, but we can accept them and let them exists, just like anything else.

"Failure is the main fear of human society. I’m just trying to create a bit more space for difference and highlight the things we usually want to keep in silence.”
