In short, the history of Belly Button Tattoo Shop:

It started 11 years ago to Perpignan after my masters in fine arts in Toulouse. At the time it was an old convent in which particular was a hairdresser pal Mike . I rented the other side and I opened my shop !

At the time , we could not find that flash in tattoo parlors Perpignan. Customers eager to find patterns in their catalogs and I told them “ I draw !” It surprised .
A few years after I met Aurélio coming out of art school , he was in the comics. I tattooed his publisher who wanted to introduce ourselves . I was hooked to his style and the person . He had a talent for drawing and I offered to teach him how to tattoo ! He came from 93 ! New region , new adventure.

Two years after Bird arrived at the studio. A friend put us in touch . It was “ sniffed the ass” a few weeks and voila! It’s been one year and a half that tattoo and it’s just amazing !
The talented and famous Niko Inko (he loves that presents like that … ! ) Joined us in the south in recent months.

It also gets a lot of guests at the show. At this time, Jade was Luis of Mexico. This is an aspect of the world of tattoo that I really like . You can meet , share and exchange worldwide . This is a fantastic part of our business.
You are particularly well represented on social networks . Some tattoo artists want to stay stashed , not you. Why ?

It is amazing to see the excitement there was around this page (note: the account page of Belly Button Facebook has more than 200,000 members) ! For us it is just a game . We fed our Facebook account and took the sauce .

We are pleased to introduce our rooms every day , even if those who have the most “success” on the internet are not always the ones you prefer .

For 3 years we are in a private room . It has turned my old apartment into tattoo parlor . It is more secluded and quiet. People are surprised because they expect a large front and it’s a tiny thing with writing Belly Button on the bell.

There are a lot of japanese influences in rooms you do, why did not you open a sushi restaurant ?

(Laughs) I agree with you in the sense that there is a lot of japanese influences but that’s not all . I like to work the abstract textures brushes, pencil , or poska of spray paint . I have also an illustration world.

Seriously, where did you get this effect ?

Designer of my studies and work for the ruff side tattoo graphic .
When I became interested in Japanese tattoo, I found it too complicated, too messy ( too much color , details etc.). I prefer a more sanitized version . It’s ok aging in time!
I hope that my clients can always read their parts in 60 years!

I tend to associate the Japanese jazz. It does not easily accessible air but when you start to interest you there is a fantasy world.

And then there aa side of this timeless Japanese I look for in my tattoos. About me I have nothing but Japanese. Left arm ( Sacha ) right arm ( symmetry Yann Black ) . In the back I have a Japanese carp ( Stef , Illusion of Light ) . I only do large pieces , one for each member .

And the theme of natural elements like very much . It gives the movement , energy , poetry
How do you work with projects your customers? People know they do what they want when they come to you ?

The people I meet are from time to time with a detailed plan of what they want . I prefer to ask two questions:
“Why would you get a tattoo and what do you want to tell .” We are looking how to graph it prerenders symbolism they have in mind . There are tattoo artists who let people make their appointments without trying too hard to understand why and how , it is not in my step ! We are here to create a piece for someone and you have to know the person a minimum !

The shop policy is to meet and talk with the person. After you tattooed . I always draw on the skin of my clients, I work in free hand . And the basic principle is sharing .

The majority of tattoos are you doing are cleaned and we find a certain joie de vivre! One has the impression that they are moving. This is your reflection or is it only an artistic desire ?

The tattoo must have an optimistic desire . It should not have negative side. You assert yourself as a human being and you make yourself happy . It is a part of yourself that you just show others. It is important for me to come and give that touch of optimism.

How you selected your clients and projects that you agree to work ?

I agree in general all projects that are proposed me if it meets my requirements. I do not rework tattoo . I do not tattooed near other tattoos unless they are in the same vein graph . No small parts. I need space … By working hand free , you just inspire you the body of your client, its muscles, its curves and body geometry. I also pay attention to the process of my client. Understand why and how .

The rule is respect .
The person / celebrity would you like to get your hands on ?

Dewey Cox, the hero of Walk Hard.
Otherwise Alain Chabat , it would be something! I love the character so much that it would make me kiffer !
What are the tattoo artists who have particularly influenced you?

Bugs: a guy who really influenced me in this process where the tattoo world was inspired by modern art. This is the first approach to a tattoo artist out of the ordinary . It went beyond the rules. Black and Yann who broke the rules a little and that made me think about the fact that I could tattoo that I liked the most draw.

The tattoo itself away from its consensus to open a new graphical world.
Many tattoo artists have found themselves in this new approach as Xoil , Jeff of “ Modern Meat ” or Lea Nahon to name a few and all these people helped to propose a new vision of tattooing.
What do you think of tattooing in France today?

This is in turmoil .
Many new faces , new ideas , and many others are a bit too inspired by what has been done …
On the French scene was beautiful the world as Lilou in Clermont ( Santa Sangre ) , Kofi to Strabourg ( Baron Samedi ) , Nad Lille ( Chiale Baby) , Yom ( Mystery Tattoo Club) or Frank Anzalone Valencia ( Misti -ka ) .

Perpignan now owl living as Old Serb Club Saddhu home or Seb Ink me. And how not to mention the three companions who work with me : Aurélio , Bird and Niko Inko .
