SAILOR ROMAN OPENS TATTOO PARLOUR IN PARIS
Roman Foucher aka Sailor Roman is one of the cult tattoo artists to check out in Paris, he just opened a studio in the artistic eastern side Paris, close to Bastille. Fascinated by the sea and all who sail on or live in it, Roman has inked a motley crew of clientele from urbanites seeking his unique style, with whom the ‘sea as metaphor’ resonates, and to those who are attached to it via family tradition or work.
Sailor Roman began as an illustrator who created a personal universe submerged in the sea; giant mystical sea creatures, anchors and navigational equipment are amongst his signatures. "My work reflects my addiction to voyages of all kinds and my passion for life on the ocean," he says, adding that he can be inspired by Dutch etchings from the eleventh century all the way up to French art déco. "My tattoos have a lot of detail but they’re tough, their imperfection reflects the coarse life of a seafarer."
