Yama Tattoo Slowmotion Video
In what seems like a film trailer to a blockbuster superhero film, this slowmotion tattoo video (embedded below), featuring Michael Taguet of Yama Tattoo, goes deep into the tattooer's process with a tight close-up view, which introverts may find a little too intimate. I really liked it and thought it was a fun way to see how an artist works, from sketch to stencil to tattooing to wipedown, and more important, to view a great finish to all the build-up.
The video was created by Stephane Couchoud of Millenium-Studio, and filmed at Yama Tattoo, which is in Saint-Chamond, Loire, of the Rhone-Alpes region in France. The work created in the video has that very graphic Neotraditional bent to it, but Michael works in a variety of tattoo styles. Check more of his tattoos here.
In May, we featured another slowmotion tattoo video, also of a French artist, Parisian tattooer GueT.
It should be interesting to see what other ways filmmakers present tattoo art to the public.
Thanks, Julien, for the link!
