Tin Tin honored as INTENZE Never Fade Tattoo Artist
As the newest addition to the "Never Fade" lineup, Tin-Tin is the central figure in tattooing in Paris, France, where he has been tattooing for more than 20 years. Tin-Tin's legacy is a special one, his methods and ideas about the art of tattooing have grown out of years of experience and have never been subject to the flippant trends of youth culture.
Tin-Tin, in a lot of ways, has been an integral part of high fashion origins. He has collaborated with the likes of Jean-Paul Gautier, Marc Jacobs, and Stefano Pilati of Yves Saint Laurent, as well as being their personal tattoo artists. Tin-Tin's rough and rowdy upcoming as a biker, on the road and fighting hard to earn the respect he deserves, gives him a 'cool' only a few people have, and fashionistas keep his door swinging as they come to get a piece of that cool.
Tin-Tin is a tattoo artist because he enjoys the craftsmanship and the design that is required to construct and execute a perfect tattoo. His priority is not fashion or style, but rather to be the best at what he does, and to enjoy his life and his family. Leaving behind a legacy, contributing to tattoo culture, and history-making are not so important to Tin-Tin, which makes him all the more cool and all the more inspiring and makes him affect tattoo culture that much more.
Because of these reasons and more, Tin-Tin is honored as our fourth "Never Fade" artist. Tin-Tin is a craftsman above all else, and values the happiness tattooing brings him, which inevitably led to lasting contributions to the industry in spirit and in excellent design. His ability to excel through passion and never get wrapped up in the performance of it all sets him apart from much of popular tattooing. He reminds us all to love what we do, and do it for its own sake, because that is the part of our day-to-day working lives that will have to always make us happy.
It is easy to be tempted to show off or gloat or get flashy when one is successful at something. Remembering Tin-Tin's spirit and passion keeps us all grounded and focused on what really makes us happy. Intenze Products isn't the best ink because it has the coolest bottle or sexy advertising - Intenze Products is the best because the craft is what is most important. Creating excellent products brings excellent artists to our product in the same way that excellent design attracts excellent clientele for Tin-tin.
Tin-Tin is a great and humble man, and he embodies the idea that true passion will Never Fade.
