Scene360 had the honor of meeting and filming XoĂŻl in a rare appearance at the 14th International London Tattoo Convention. This Frenchman has stood the test of time as a â€śtattoo artist,â€ť pushing the boundaries of the field and not conforming to the mainstream. In youth, XoĂŻl was inspired by the modern paintings of Sergio Ferroâ€”stating that Ferro â€śwould just splatter things, and thereâ€™d always be something beautiful in the middle of all the mess.â€ť Beyond the apparent chaos and abstraction, XoĂŻl has also created that treasure through his artistic expressionâ€”not only in tattooing, but graphically for album covers and cars, and even with his passionate collecting of oddities and antiques at flea markets. Even his own body is a work-of-art, fully inked with visual memories.
