"Here will be told the true stories of tattooed people who do not know each other and will never know each other and who nevertheless have made the same journey, the same odyssey. A passage between what we will no longer be and what we are becoming. And in this kind of act, there is always living and dead, the present and the past. All the stories are true, all the characters have existed and exist. They all echo each other, awaken their tattoos together. C is a book that does not lie because it pays homage to the relief of the flesh and summons our dormant resources.”
Héloïse Guay de Bellissen, whose body is covered with numerous drawings and inscriptions, wonders as a writer about the meaning, the aesthetics, the scope of the tattoo. In her tattoo artist husband's living room, she witnesses funny, moving, intriguing scenes, which she mixes here with her own experiences and other stories or legends from all over the world and from all eras. To explore the meaning of this ancestral gesture that is tattooing, Héloïse Guay de Bellissen also gives voice to the skin, the scar, the symbol... Her text penetrates the body and the mind like music, in turn soft and sharp, capable of taking us to the darkest and most mysterious corners of writing, to suddenly fly away lightly towards beauty.
