Jan 17 Jan 17 Olivier Poinsignon Omule Interviews, Tattoos Instagram | Youtube Support me Omule : Hi Olivier, tell me how everything started. Olivier : By accident, I’m an accident! Omule : How would you describe your style? Olivier : I don’t care about the style. I’m about finding creative process and leave traces of life appear on the body. Finding a symbolic action and be aware of what happens. I like meeting new people on each tattoo session. I don’t know which goal I’m going to reach every day. And that’s what I want to share. New adventure every day...sometimes in the soul of my customers and sometimes in my own. Omule : Where do you get your inspiration from? Olivier : I’m in love with cinema, I ‘ve been watching a lot of movies , one movie a day for the last years but today I try to focus more on my “personal monuments” like Michel Gondry or Quentin Dupieux. My brain is full of shit because I’ve watched too many things, I’ve listened a lot of music, I’ve read too many books…. but now I’m on a diet because I don’t want to create with this feeling. My favorite food is Marc Antoine Mathieu. You are what you choose to eat. I want to be good food for my consumers’ brain . Omule : Do you have any favorite artists from your industry? Olivier : I like Rit Kit, she is clear in her message. No blabla, pure work and respect of the body. I’m happy to be from the same generation because I don’t know if she could do this style few decades ago. Omule : How was the experience in Romania for TOT Sessions with R.Rosca? Olivier : I don’t like to work outside my private place. But it was the opportunity to work one more time with my friend Lee Stewart and to meet those other guys. It was really interesting. I’m naturally attracted by east Europe without knowing why. I was proud to be there, I like strong architecture and strong people. Raz was very kind with all of us. He is younger but already good on composition . I know he took things from my work, and he brought it to another dimension, it’s beautiful. One more thing, my nose bleed one time in Romania...it’s the proof that it was intense. Omule : Five things you can’t live without. Olivier : Breath, drink, dream, eat, think and break rules. Omule : What is your favorite kind of project? Olivier : I like when I have the feeling of doing something that can’t exist outside the customer I’m working with.. I would love to work more and more with the healing process because it’s something specific for the human material. I like to use blindfolds with my customers and to offer them a strong experience. I also love when my customers have goosebumps, I can feel them. Omule : What would be a great achievement for you? Olivier : To die before my children and let some brain food for a part of humanity. One of my main goals is to create a full creative concept into a lucid dream and bring it to real life . I’ve been working on it for the last 5 years. Being happy is not my main goal. I like to visit pain to keep a contrast in my life and sadness is also a good fuel. Omule : What's your current project? Olivier : I’m working on a conceptual movie/book for 2020. This movie will show my main performance “a needle for a couple” and will talk about the action of creation and procreation. I want to share an extra experience and make a film like I do tattoos. I don’t know if it will be good, I just know it will be true and from my guts. I will share it with the people who support me. I don’t want to share it free on the web like all the bad food I’m trying to fight with. Omule : Who is on the guest list for your ideal dinner party? Olivier : My friends, they are the people who I expect to party with. Omule : What would you say to young/aspiring artists, to help them improve and find their way? Olivier : Before being an artist, go live your life and find out who you really are, why you do what you do and know if you want to make your place worse or better before dying. We destroy things by being alive...find how to deal with it. After you trust yourself, concentrate, be aware of laws and don’t follow shitty rules.
