The Amazing Bodysuit: Tattooing by Lewisink

Tattoo artist Lewisink is known for being in his Paris studio all year round and rarely does event appearances, so we were lucky he was coming to the London Tattoo Convention to finish a bodysuit on his client e.r_i_c from Switzerland. Prior to the event, Lewisink worked 200 hours (divided in 30 sessions) during a year-and-a-half to get the bodysuit nearly complete. Now finalizing the feet dot by dot in black ink, a technique that he says will last the test of time; thousands of spectators gather around his booth throughout the three-day event to watch him in action. His art piece was solely envisioned from his own imagination, as he explains: “I ask my customer for 100% creative freedom. I only do my own designs, but I don’t impose them on anyone. Every tattoo I do starts with a conversation, I only ask for my clients to be open and to trust me.”
