The Fun Modernist Tattoos of Carlo Amen

abstract tattoo, linework, picasso style

Lighthearted and colorful is the linework of Carlo Amen, a tattooist and co-owner of private studio Les Maux Bleus in Paris. His art is inspired by French Modernists and Spanish artist Picasso who spent most of his life in France. The 1939 cubist painting “The Weeping Woman” and 1949 line drawing “Dove of Peace” ghostly fume into the consistent tattoo style of Carlo Amen who’s expressed it on canvases too (see bottom of post). In addition to his tattooing and painting, Amen has had a good time collaborating with Guillaume Henry on their project, “Stupid Tattoo Toys.”
