Brilliant! – I planned my first tattoo in my mind and my heart for over a year. Paris brought it to life in just a few hours. I first met with Alexandra for a consultation, and she was welcoming, kind, and very helpful. The studio itself is so far beyond the old fashioned concept of a "tattoo parlor-" truly it is an artists' studio, nothing less.
When I came for my appointment with Paris, he spent over an hour with me to carefully design the tattoo just as I wanted, listening to me, studying my photographs and absorbing my explanations. He carefully created a transfer, and repositioned it until we were all satisfied. I knew this mattered to him and to Alexandra, not only to me! That made me feel as important as a client, even as a newcomer to the world of tattooing.
The tattoo is a celebration of life and memorial of losses, in one, and it is perfectly representative of my feelings. I wanted a floral design, a vine, that was embroidered on my wedding gown. Paris did this. I wanted beautiful script of the word "liebe" incorporated into the vine, and he did this as well. But most importantly to me, he created a perfectly proportioned, delicate, feminine, and sexy tattoo which suits me, and that seems like a miracle in itself! Exactly what I dreamed of. More!
The tattoo is still healing, and it is exciting to watch it heal and know that it will be with me forever, and thanks to Paris, it is something I can be proud to share and show.
