Fabricio Mello, rocker at heart, discovered at an early age a passion for tattoos. After being several times under the needle, Fabricio grabbed his first machine in 1998 and began tattooing with Leandro Vargas, in Porto Alegre, Brazil. 4 Years later, he opened his first solo shop, Casa De Leoes (first of its name) in Porto Alegre, while continuing to work as light designer.
He sets foot on French soil for the first time in 2004 during a music festival and meets Emilie, his future wife who becomes his partner several years later. Finally he settles in France to join her and in 2011, Casa De Leoes opens its doors in Nantes.
Since then, Fabricio has not lost (or Fabricio never lost) his globetrotting side as he is present on many conventions and guests all around the world.
« My father was always drawing; he showed me the basics" confides Thomas Oliger aka "Snatch". Since then, drawing became for him a pleasure, a real passion.
Always attracted to American culture, art and metal music, tattoos are for him, related to this universe.
At school he was only interested in drawing, but finances did not allow him to continue in art school, so he taught himself. Before becoming a tattoo artist, Snatch did all sorts of jobs to afford his first tattoos. They also allowed him to save up and open his shop. He learned to tattoo by observation and practice.
To date, Snatch has had for the past 8 years his own shop based in Pagny-sur-Moselle in the Lorraine region of France. Tattooing is an integral part of his life and he customizes each of his tattoos. He is passionate about his work and loves to see customers leave with a smile ! »
« I advise the Easytattoo® Cream because it really promotes good healing of tattoos, it is not greasy and therefore is not a problem with clothing. Moreover it is not allergenic. »
Initially, I come from the Skate-Surf and Graff culture, it fuelled my passion for Associated Arts, which tattooing is a part of. So from a young age, it became an obvious and complete lifestyle for me.
I do not fit in a classic mold regarding my introductory journey. Through personal circumstances I found myself with a dermo in hand and a Shop to run. It took me quite a dose of determination and hard work to learn the business, having received no apprenticeship with a master tattooist, and I honestly think it is in this precise manner that I learned the true values of the profession.
I have now over 15 years of practice, and I continue to evolve my techniques whilst pursuing artistic discoveries, being notably an admirer of tattooist’s work, who are often painters and who command respect for what they have contributed to the profession.
As for my specialty, we will say that I am focused on realism in black&grey and color, whilst also enjoying working on Japanese-inspired pieces. Finally, I work with my wife Laura Amar at White Chapel Tattoo, shop located in the south of France, in Bandol (Var).

I started tattooing in 2001, trained by Jeff Tournai and Serge Albertville and opened my shop Clockwork Needle in Epinal, city which I am from, in 2002. After several years confined in my shop, I decided to participate in conventions, the first being Belfort which was then organized by Mike the Buddha. With this experience I worked hard to integrate other conventions and gradually I began to work abroad. I discovered painting at the same time and met Sylvain Loisant Painter Vitellois. This meeting was decisive and revolutionized my vision of things and my tattooing. Today I try to make both worlds meet and in the near future I would like to devote more time to art in general.
It is now more than 5 years since I exclusively use the Easytattoo® aftercare range. After many healing inconveniences associated with the use of different pharmaceutical products, I solely adovocate the Easytattoo® Aftercare Kit, the soft cleansing gel is gentle and efficient, and the cream is perfect, it does not stain, does not clog skin pores and leaves skin feeling moisturized for a long time even in very thin layers. Its value for money is perfect. It's simple; to this day I can only guarantee the proper healing of a tattoo with the use of this kit.
10 years ago, after studying art in Saint-Luc (Liège), Jean-Pierre Mottin decides to go into tattooing. Self-taught, he tries his hand in several tattoo studios, including Calypso Tattoo, where he evolves alongside Daniel Di Mattia. If his inspiration comes from African graphics, Jean-Pierre likes to quote tattoo artists Xhoil or Jondix, the artist Yves Klein and the painter Piet Mondrian when asked about his influences. In 2010, he began to pay close attention to dot work techniques and it’s in this same year that he does his first piece in that particular style. Jean-Pierre explains that he finds in this meticulous work, a great interest and a sort of “relaxation” and “self-hypnosis” caused by the concentration required by this type of piece. Four years later, having refined the work of the dot, the tattoo artist decides to open his own studio named “Grizzly Inc” in the city where he began : Liège.
Finally, with his experience behind him, it’s in 2013 that he decides to have a go on the other side of the fence, by hosting dozens of artists each year during the Tox Cit’Ink, tattoo convention in Liège.
"The EASY STUFF stencil transfer gel revolutionized the way I use a stencil. From the very first use, I knew I couldn’t live without it."
«I’m Julien from Te Mana Tattoo, I’m 38 years old and have been a tattoo artist for a little over 20 years. I was born in France and grew up in Tahiti where I studied Marquesan art and more particularly Polynesian tattoo art for several years.
Back in France in late 2000, I quickly opened my studio in the south of France in Montpellier. My greatest achievement is without a doubt winning a prize at the Mondial du Tatouage in Paris in 2015.»
Born in 1985 in Bulgaria, Teodor Milev began his career in 2001 in Sofia.
He arrives in France in 2005 and works in several shops in Lyon, passing through the south of France. At the end of 2013 he opens his shop 681 Tattoos, in Lyon. Teo's favorite style is Black and Gray Realism, but he also tends towards Japanese.
"I have been recommending the Easytattoo® Kit for many years. For me this kit is essential because it guarantees me an impeccable finish."
I was bathed in the tattoo industry from 18 years old, training in the uncle’s shop (sweeping, cleaning, sterilization, welding needles). I was able to buy the shop in 2009 where I actually started tattooing all sorts of tattoos. Then, I started specializing in realism in 2014 and developed my techniques meeting people during my various guest spots and conventions. I now work in a Private studio in my small village in the Loire.
I tried all kinds of healing methods, I now use the Easytattoo® cream as it gave me the most convincing results. It is comfortable for my customers, as well as for application during the healing period.
I also advise the Easytattoo® Sunblock Stick, because the sun is an enemy to tattoos! Its easy travel format allows you to protect your tattoos at any time during sunny days.
I am honored to be under the Easyteam banner !
It was by getting inked in 2007 in a "souvenir" shop during holidays that I began to take an interest in this art. In view of the result, I thought I could do better. Following the advice of Jack Ribeiro, I began drawing during almost 2 years, in order to present a correct book and begin an apprenticeship.
In 2010, I began working with Realist'Ink (in Carling, France) alongside Manu Durand and also started doing conventions.
Today my style is Dark orientated ; I love Black and Gray, Freehand, textures and Realism.
I discovered the Easytattoo® range (kits) in conventions and since then I use and advise the different products of their ranges. I advise the Easytattoo® cream to my customers because it has only advantages: easy to use with its dosing pump, non-greasy after application and above all, it really promotes the healing of tattoos.
For my part, I like to use the Easytattoopro® monodose vaseline, very practical when travelling to conventions or when I am a guest.
Tattoo artist Laurent Z was born in 1977 in Marseille. He has always lived in the south of France. He is 1m85 tall for a 110kg at the weigh-in, "a nice baby" as he puts it. He is also a graduate of an applied arts and interior design school.
As a self-taught tattoo artist, he draws his inspiration and technique from his encounters and travels, constantly evolving : he believes that we keep learning as time goes on.
His style is a mixture of graphic, ethnic and Japanese. He is very fond of symmetry. He defines himself as a "tattoo cooker".
"The main thing is to have an exchange with the person getting tattooed, and that the piece they are going to wear is anatomical."
With Easytattoo® Protect, the healing is done in a humid environment, the aim of which is to avoid the creation of scabs so no need for retouching. The healing is quickened. It keeps the skin elastic, avoiding tightness. The film allows the skin to breathe where an improperly applied cream will clog the pores. Easytattoo® Protect is for me the best healing solution and the one I use for my own tattoos as well as my work.
I opened my first shop in 1998 in Carling in Moselle France, where I tattooed until 2 years ago. Since, I have moved 50 meters further down in a large house entirely dedicated to Tattoo Art: Realist'ink Tattoo! We are a team of 6 tattoo artists and we regularly receive several guests from all over France.
I started to do conventions in 2000, which I still do today in France and abroad. At these conventions, I have the chance to meet great artists, some of whom have become very good friends.
I have perfected myself in realistic portraits as it is a style I especially enjoy.
I discovered the Easytattoo® cream in convention, about 4 years ago. I first tried it on myself and since, satisfied with the product; recommend only this to my customers. Moisturizing and non-greasy, it is the ideal cream for tattoo aftercare.
