This interview was made in Lyon the 11th of October 2004.
Manu and I have met the guitar player Mark Görtz.
did you came to tattoo ?
years ago. Maybe 8 or 9 years. In my home town, not really much people
were tattooed. And I saw some tattoo magazines and I thought that was
Why did you get your first tattoo ?
a hard question. I don't know. No particular reason. I just liked it.
I don't wanted to have a so big tattoo at first.
have 2 that I prefer. One on my back, it's sort of a straight edge tattoo,
XXX, and this one, it's my biggest one and my favorite. It's also the
last one I got.
Yes, do you know HR Giger. I wanna get a Giga tattoo, it's an alien, like a demon holding the cross with Jesus. It's also a black and white one, not a colored one.
Is there a tattoo artist which work impresses you very much ?
I gess I'll say Paul Booth. He's one of the best one.
Would you lmike him to do a work on you ?
Yes, definatly. But I think he is very, very expensive.
For you, what is the importance of tattoo in the music spirit ?
me, music and tattoo doesn't have to do so much together. My tattoos
What do you think of the new rise of tattoo ? Do you consider it as a fashion ?
Yeah. Definatly, I mean, so many young girls and women and boys do stupid very little things like dolphins or stuff like that. I think it's not the meaning of tattoo. Also the make-up artists doing tattoo in germany, place where you can get your ear pierced and a small tattoo, they said that it's going away in 2 years, but that's definatly not true. It's stupid for me.
Do you have a message for the kids who want to be tattooed ?
about it before you want to do it. And do the right thing. Don't do
something you maybe won't like in 5 years. Think about it a lot before
you have band name or something. Because I know a guy who have band
name and now he hates this band so it's maybe not the best idea.
