Meeting Jim Appay

Jim Appay, 20, has already plunged into the world of tattoos. These are his words, not mine, and which are spoken with a certain pride.


Passionate about computer science, passionate about tattoos

Jim Appay is a student of computer science in Avignon, and has made a courageous stand against the proposed law to ban colored tattoo inks, by posting an online petition. He originally hoped to collect a few signatures and perhaps make a name for himself at his local tattoo shop.


A petition to save colored tattoos is met with resounding support

As I write, the petition has already been signed by over 140,000 people, and more signatures are flooding in. If you have not yet left your mark, now is the time. As Jim says, we don’t have a second to lose.
