Tattoo artist, painter, and sculptor Fred Laverne has a dark surrealist sensibility, blending in odes to pop culture and pulp tropes into his work. The artist resides in Menton, France, and has garnered a reputation in both tattooing and fine arts, practices he keeps in parallel.
“He has been tattooing since 1993 and has always worked in Menton although he is from the Ardennes,” his site says. “Over the years, he has refined a New School style that he has evolved into more realism, like his paintings. Because Fred has also been painting for over 10 years, you can admire his works in the ‘Art’ section. Fred does not neglect other tattoo styles, such as Japanese, ornamental and dark realism, while favoring color.”
