The inspiration of Sissou’s grandma

Sissou is a tattoo artist, and a mixture of talent and incredible hard work have made her who she is today.

The new tattoo idea is a project revolving around the ideal of family, and hers in particular.

To give me an impression of the ideas she had, she showed me a collection of photos from another era, during which I discovered her maternal grandmother, suitably dressed for communion.


This was the photo we decided to use to create the template for the tattoo she wanted on her arm.

Other objects and additions from history helped reinforce the theme and the story of her family, recounted through images and transformed into an indelible homage on her skin.
