The young swiss award-winning artistic group Blakam Madame is known, among others, for their very personal appropriation of tattooing, which they practice more as a ritualized gesture than an aesthetic effort, like traces of a mysterious rite. Their tattoos often quote their paintings and installations which, subsequently, integrates and implies themselves””the bearers””as full-time parts of their art.

Blakam also run an art space in Lausanne: Bellevaux

Here, some random little videos made during a tattooing session. Note the videos are no way part of their work, just a vague and informal documentation.
