Graceful, Delicate, and Poetic – the Tattoos of Ani des Aubes

Tattoo artist from Montpellier, France, Ani des Aubes, has always drawn. After high school, she started art studies; the idea of tattooing came to her during this period, but she was afraid of the closed environment. “I bought a tattoo machine that I hid a few years in a drawer before I realized I wanted to do that.” Nowadays, things are different, tattoo culture is growing everywhere, as well as in Montpellier. Shops are opening and people are getting more tattooed! And Ani found her place there, but she also travels a lot. She’s inspired by everything. A lot of her ideas came from Japanese print books and nude photography. “I like curves, suppleness, the strength of simple lines, the body and nature are found in these characteristics. Nature blends in the body and the body blends in nature.” Enjoy our favorite picks and don’t forget to visit Ani des Aubes’ Instagram Page for more sublime tattoo artwork.
