The little story of tattooing
For a long time on the periphery of Western culture, tattooing is no longer the sole purview of the sailors and the sacred. Practiced throughout time and all over the world, the art of tattooing (from the Polynesian Tatau) dates back to 1300 BCE, in which colouring the skin marked the important stages of life.
In the Middle Ages and until the end of the 19th century, tattooing, considered a pagan practice, was banned by the Church everywhere in Europe. It then became the tradition of mariners as well as prisoners, for the latter in particular in Russia where inmates did not hesitate
The tattoo in the Western world, long reserved for
those at society’s margins, including gangs and bad
boys, established itself in the 1980s in pop culture,
promoted by rock stars, punk and rap music.
This collaboration could not have happened without Tatouages Magazine and its two founders, friends and partners, Jérôme Pierrat and Mikael de Poissy, who proposed to Deejo to bring together over a period of two years twelve of the world's most famous tattoo artists for an exclusive collection. Every two months, this collection showcases the exceptional talent of these artists on Deejo knife blades.
