The Portugal Tattoo Artists


John Merre


John Merre

A lifelong Artists that has worked for some of France’s most prestigious names such as Vogue, Yves Saint Laurent and Marie Claire, John Merre moved into the world of Tattooing in 2007. Examples of Johns Art Work can be found on his artist website @ www.jeanlouismerre.com . “I find it more personal than just selling someone a painting. I appreciate the connection between someone who gets tattooed and their tattoo artist. It has brought me many dear friendships and I enjoy it very much”.




I started my journey of tattooing 4 years ago and from then onwards a whole new world has opened up to me. I have traveled extensively and been able to get in touch with many different cultures and learn various different tattoo styles and techniques. I enjoy diversity and my main quality is my precision. From portraits and classic tattoos to black and grey realism, I consider myself to be a master of all styles yet I am still learning new things especially from John who has helped me a great deal, especially in regards to my free hand work.

“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” – Pablo Picasso
