paris-based tattoo artist guet is filmed at work, administering ink onto an arm in a mesmerizing slow motion video. the short film captures the hypnotizing movement of the gun’s pointed needle puncturing the skin, carefully delivering liquid color into the malleable flesh. long strokes forming solid lines are played with a delay, exhibiting the meticulous effort required of the artist. short, stabbing jabs are a cringe-worthy reminder of the possible pain that accompanies the experience. both revelatory and fascinating, the video below describes the practice with an exclusive and uncommon tone of creativity and beauty.
