I’ve always wondered how new starter tattoo artist practice on tattoos before getting out in the real business. A fake arm would be ideal, but does that really exist? Apparently it does, but not for practice. Tattoo artist Guy Le Tatooer is a professional that is tattooing people all the time, but for this art project he used fake arms. The arms are of course prosthetic and are copies of Guy’s own arm, and he used a traditional electric system to tattoo them.
You can see the exhibition in Gimpel & Muller gallery in Paris where the arms are represented behind glass. Guy think that tattoo is like art, so he wanted to show express his work in a gallery and not just on bodies that usually gets tattooed by him. Speaking of this kind of body decoration, check out these tiny ear tattoos.
