  1. Obviously it’s intentional since he’s French himself… but I couldn’t stand having a spelling mistake tattooed onto me. Oh well, he can always correct it later I suppose. It’s a really sweet tattoo nonetheless.

  2. i’ve thought long and hard about it and i cant figure it out. what body part is this?

  3. Looks like the calf to me, or possibly underneath the upper arm… but calf seems more likely.

  4. Proncess… it’s a play on words. She’s called “AnnaBELL”, without an ‘e’, so it’s “La plus bell” spelt similarly, I’d imagine….

    Something like “Betti is pretti” or something….

  5. having studied french for so long the typo is the only thing that stuck out to me, but i love the unique design on the bird, reminds me of this other innovative artist whose name i always forget.

  6. Of course, I cannot BEAR to look at incorrect french

    It’s about as annoying as hearing somebody confuse a Manet and a Monet!

    I also read very big books

  7. i love how unique tattoos from france always look. Is it just me, or do they always seem to have the most unique tattoo ideas and artwork?

  8. As much as the missing “e” is making me writhe too, I love that bird. Look at the shading inside — the texture is so painterly, and that makes a powerful contrast with the linework. Sex-ay.

  9. Ohh I totally love Lionels work…just found out he’s going to be in the UK in March, I’m far too excited! :]]]
