Avant-garde tattoo: Yann Black

My wife got a tattoo the other day and the tattoo artist showed me this amazing book with avant-garde tattoos in it, because I said I didn’t like conventional tattoos that much, but instead liked large black tatooed surfaces and was looking for other non-standard ideas.

She introduced me to the ‘French avant-garde’. That’s right, not only in black metal France is ahead of the troops, apparently the francophone world is also way ahead of others when it comes to tattoos.

I think it’s awesome, repulsive, funny, compelling all in once.

All tattoos shown here are by Yann Black.

  2. Do you know any tatoo artist in the states that does work like this? I know i could get any artist to copy a design, but i would rather have someone who is familiar with and enjoys this type of work.
