Creepy-Crawly Hybrids in the Dark Tattoos of Jeanchoir

Jeanchoir is a Marseille-based tattoo artist and the founder of Sombre Tache (in English: Dark Spot) tattoo studio. As the name suggests, this is indeed the place for dark and unusual ink; occultism meets Giger-esque aliens in Jeanchoir’s unholy tattoos, birthing the kinds of creatures you’d only expect to find in the forests of distant hellscapes. Recently, he has been tattooing a series of nightmarish centipede hybrids: wolves, human skeletons, and Japanese Noh masks erupt into a flurry of legs. The multiplicity creates a sense unease, as the propagating limbs, faces, and eyes trouble our notions of nature and the singular body. Be sure to follow Jeanchoir on Instagram to stay up-to-date with his darkly imaginative work.
