I talked about it in my article about the best tattoo artists: La Serre Paris is a workshop more and more famous in Paris. Located close to the Luxembourg gardens, this small workshop is very attractive and more and more popular, especially with the spotlight put on it by influencers such as Enjoy Phoenix. J’I tested this show, I tell you my experience.

Among these three artists, the most known is without a doubt DOT who is very present and has a lot of contacts’a certain talent in small, well detailed pieces, landscapes, stars and dots.

A guarantee that seems to me quite understandable and normal, especially when I see the number of slots made available at the last minute following a cancellation.
Hygiene and work of this Parisian tattoo parlour
For the’Having tested it, La Serre du Tatouage is a very clean establishment, really, it is not a place for a tattoo’There was nothing to complain about.

My experience during my tattoo
As for my tattoo, Paulette Ceyrat has done a beautiful job that perfectly reflects what I wanted. She listened to me and took the time to ask me if everything was okay, to tell me if I was okay, and to tell me if I was okay’To validate an appointment time together, he will have to explain the steps and make a pause when I am ready’I needed to stretch my arm a bit, ankylosed by the service.

On the other hand, whether it’s a bad day or a habit, I don’t know’I had one word from DOT in the salon with a client during my visit. No “hello”, no “goodbye” and even less “how do you do ? “. This is quite surprising when you know that it is not a good idea to have a woman in the same room as you’It is he who has a long list of’waiting for appointments. If I don’t contest his talent and the beauty of his work, such a cold reception was a bit destabilizing, as I was about to be confronted with a new model’We tell you again: there are some people who are more than happy to take the mail’he was talking to his client when I arrived, the client then left which did not help’has not changed things.
A little discomfort that doesn’t seem to be a problem’I was not disturbed by my visit and still left a good impression and a really successful tattoo.
