    I never understand when people say they get tattoos to remember important things, surely if they’re so important you don’t need a daily bodily reminder? But her tattoos really suit her, they’re quite delicate and it somehow looks wonderful with her romantic white dress and low loose bun. She needs to stop soon though, I think she has enough! I didn’t know her but her jewellery looks amazing.

    Hahaha, I thought exactly the same! How could you ever forget something that’s important to you? My memories are my tattoos!

  • Maria Pimentel September, 13 2012, 7:44

    That’s probably the *only* reason why I think of doing a tattoo sometimes. I do forget things. Really important things, really… people with good memory don’t really get it but it’s so frustrating. And also to remind me of important stuff like values or paths in life, like every time you look at it you remember to be free, or true, or loyal, and how important it is to you and that’s why it’s there, on your body, so that when you’re on a hard moment, it reminds you of what’s truly important. :)

    impressive!!! I lik to see tattoos on others rather than on me.. would be attracted by a small one but always been scared of..what’s happen when you are 60 years old and your skin is wrinkle not so sexy anymore..I like the idea to have one your could remove easily…so Garance will you do one we want to know about it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!but not sure you will do it..French are a bit scary for that!!!

    Plus que le principe j’aime beaucoup la manière dont elle décrit son idée ! Depuis pas mal de temps j’ai envie de sauter le pas mais j’ai une peau hypersensible et une tatoueuse m’a dit qu’elle ne m’en ferait jamais à cause de ça. Donc je regarde avec envie ceux des autres !

    Absolutely! I already have one. It’s a triangle with H letter in bottom of it in my chest! No one can see it but me. I really like to know, that I have it, and it’s just for me. When I saw this video, I decided that I want one more!

    And one more. All girls write, what will happens when their skin will be in wrinkles and bla bla bla…. I think, when your skin is in wrinkles it is already horrible, no matter do you have tattoo or not!!!

  • Benoît September, 13 2012, 8:19 / Reply

    Les tatouages n’ont pas à être “à la mode” ou non, c’est un acte très personnel bien au-dessus des tendances. Il faut prendre un (long) temps de réflexion, un an pour ma part avant chacun, puisqu’a priori le tatouage restera à vie sur la peau.
    Le seul hic lorsqu’on fait un premier tatouage, c’est que l’on pense très rapidement au second, c’est un peu le piège, à moins de vouloir ressembler à Rico le zombie. Je ne sais pas encore si le tatouage est si bien accepté qu’on le laisse penser (entretien pro par exemple), c’est pourquoi mes deux tatouages sont très discrets et impossible de deviner que je suis un mec tatoué. On le fait pour soi et non pour les autres, c’est le plus important.

  • Melanie September, 13 2012, 8:33 / Reply

    Absolutely no tattoo for me! It very rarely looks good and it certainly doesn’t on an elderly, white-haired, wrinkled and in comfortable shoes old ladies or men! I find henna tattoos more beautiful and fun AND it comes off again… Pamela’s jewellery looks great though.

  • Sigrid September, 13 2012, 8:47 / Reply

    Noooooo… absolutely no tattoo for me but I certainly can appreciate it on other peoples bodies. Not on everybody’s bodies though..
    It suites Pamela very well and I adore her jewellry. Very beautiful!

    But…if somebody forced me to take a tattoo then I would have one on one finger. Like a delicate ring.

    One question, is Pamela called “Paloma” in French? Because I’ve just noticed in the end of your video it is written as Salon de Paloma. Just curious. I’m a language nerd. :) That said, I’ve really enjoyed all your PMF videos so far!

    I think a nice small tattoo will always look cute, even if you are 75. (ok, ok, I can hear you guys, of course, you put it somewhere where it doesn’t wrinkle too much, like behind the ear, or make it look like a ring…). I would have loved it if my grandmother had had a tattoo :)

    I think it is a very nice idea, especially as tattoos become more and more art and our generation sees them as someting beautiful. I am not sure if I would get ones as all the people around me (boyfriend, parents hate them) but it would be a challenge and an interesting one. Her tattoos looks so beautiful!

    I think her tattoos are beautiful and her tattoo parlour is a great idea. Everything else we use to adorn ourselves are designed by professionals and made for the masses, why not tattoos, right? Still, I would want my tattoos to be a bit more unique and have someone design them just for me.

    Il y en a partout. Tout le monde se fait tatouer et ça a totalement perdu le sens et l’originalité du départ. C’est assez démodé en réalité. On en voit véritablement partout. Surtout ne pas franchir le pas. Car les dessins sont très vite démodés et datés…

    You’re too cute. I was waiting for you to get one with a pen or sharpee. I have 2 tattoos and I’ve thought a lot about them and the symbolism of them for my personally. I’d be open to getting more but they would need to be something I’ve thought a lot about and have reasoning for my life. I don’t foresee me getting one that I was picking off someone else’s inspiration board. But I do love the idea that she did for her presentation.

    At age 50 the advice I give to my much younger girlfriends — advice which served me well:
    1) Get an education
    2)Use condoms
    3) Wear lip stick and sun block
    4)Don’t get tattoos
    5)Seize your beauty…it is obvious to the world, and it should be obvious to you
    6)Credit card purchases a girl can’t afford are self-destructive no matter how beautiful the clothes may be

    So no, I wouldn’t get a tattoo. However, it is wonderful marketing on Pamela Love’s part.

    En décembre dernier un ami expat à NY à montré son travail dans un musée d’art contemporain ici en Suisse. Lors du vernissage il a organisé une mini performance en invitant un ami à tatoué les personnes présentes. Il y avait une vingtaine de dessins proposées, j’ai trouvé complètement fou le fait de ce lancer dans cette aventure presque sur un coup de tête.
    Un tattoo pour moi c’est beaucoup trop de choix à la fois, un jour peut être.

    Je n’aime pas les tatouages, souvent parce que les gens s’en font un, puis, deux, puis… on ne sait pas quand ça va s’arrêter, du coup ça ne fait pas harmonieux, ce n’est pas réfléchi comme un ensemble. C’est griffonné là où il y a de la place.
    Pour moi, ce n’est pas glamour, trop connoté Johnny H. … le chanteur…

    J’adore ses tatouages, et ils lui vont à merveille. J’en ai 3 moi même dont un seul sur les 3 qui m’ait réellement fait mal (celui à la cheville). C’est vrai qu’en France on est loin des Etats Unis ou quasi tout le monde est tatoué, des plus jeunes aux plus agés. A mon travail, je suis une vrai curiosité pour mes collègues, c’est drôle car mes tattoo sont voyant mais pas énormes. Je ne me pose pas la question de quoi ça aura l’air quand je serais vieille, parceque la vie est courte et je ne veux pas la passer à réfléchir… J’ai d’ailleurs le projet d’en faire d’autres. Je pense qu’on devient accroc en fait. Si vous souhaitez en faire un par effet de mode… BAD IDEA mais si vous avez des raisons profondes alors foncez.

    Yes! I would get a small one if I found there was one I really liked, but I usually take my time and put a LOT of thought into them! I already have 3 and I love ‘collecting’ them as pieces of personal custom art. I research artists extensively, sometimes take years to perfect a design, and will travel however far it takes to get something done from one of my favorite artists. My tattoos don’t necessarily have some big “meaning” I just love the beauty and artistry of them and how they become a part of me. Like Kristina above, I will rock mine with pride when i grow old and saggy :-) If my skin gets that gross when I’m older, I wouldn’t be showing it to the world, tattoo or not! Great video! I love her effortless style and am a huge fan of her jewelry!

    I think Pamela looks fabulous with her tattoos and they definitely work in with her style. People get really hung up on ageing with tattoos but our generation will be covered in tattoos by the time we reach 70 so who cares.

    No,no, no. I have evolved and learned so much as an adult & I hope to carry on learning and evolving so I would never scar my skin with something I couldn’t change. I think they look awful as they fade and blur and on older skin, just undignified. I have also recently learned that in many countries tattoo ink has tiny particles of metal in so if you subsequently have an MRI scan, it burns very painfully
