Tatouage Sauvage - Alaska (Tattoo into the wild)


  • In August 2018, we traveled 15 days in Alaska with the tattoo artist Ivan le Pays to film and tattoo landscapes, lost, into the wild.
    During this trip, we shot 5 tattoo sessions, that represent 5 different landscapes, one for each of the 5 crew members.

    The idea was to choose a place we liked during our trip, and then let Ivan le Pays draw on our skin with his portable tattoo machine. Let him be inspired by the pure wilderness beauty of Alaska and then have a souvenir engraved forever on us.
