Probably not as close as you would like, but the Leu Family are considered to be some of the best tattoo artists in the world.

Re: Tattoos nr Geneva

Its a bit of a Samoan inspired piece, where they chart family and important parts of their history I intend to do the same, my family are irish and I intend to have my whole right side of chest, arm and over onto my back etched with irish mythology, and family names mixed throughout...going to be pricey but been looking to do it for a while so I thought why not for my 30th birthday in a months time!

Re: Tattoos nr Geneva

Hi there,

I had a tattoo done in the UK and the tattooist had just returned from Switzerland. He had flown over specially just to get a tattoo by Filip Leu - think it was a dragon which Filip specialises in. Guess that is a recommendation although I didn't actually see the tattoo, he seemed pretty pleased with it.

If you do go there, could you post a report here as I am also planning a back piece.

Gruss
Hetfield

So if you from Irish stock, why are you having the story told in a Samoan tatt ??
