Are you dreaming of a great tattoo from a great artist but you don't know where to get it? We are two !

Don't worry, Jean André and The Woods Gallery have the solution.


The artist and tattooist of Aveyron origin and now based in Paris is a big name in the image world. Indeed Jean André de Trémontels has quite a liability.

He began to make himself known by working with music labels like Because Music for which he did the cover for a Justice project. He also works with Bromance Records and Ed Banger for whom he was artistic director for 3 years. He then worked as a graphic designer for major brands such as Maison Kitsuné, Adidas, Nike, Heineken, Le Coq Sportif and Colette, but also for young emerging designers. He also works with the Club Nuit Fauve and the Hôtel Le Pigalle in Paris for which he is also artistic director.

Gentleman Art

In parallel with these different activities, Jean André tackled painting and watercolors. He was then able to develop his own style, “Gentleman Art”. This style is characterized by great sensuality, almost torrid, nuanced by a line that is always fine, controlled and elegant.

He himself explains that he was inspired by his grandfather, a real heartthrob, classy in all circumstances. We find his style accompanied by words or light sentences in the tattoos he produces. His salon, Bon Jour Tattoo Club, is also based in the 18th Arrondissement of Paris.

A multitude of works

Beyond tattooing, which is now one of his main activities, Jean André has created several editions of screen prints inspired by the flash aesthetic and his recognizable style. A series of T-shirts was also released in collaboration with The Woods Gallery, not to mention the superb Eames chair that he personalized for the Montmarte boutique.

He has also developed posters such as Mouth Water and Strawberry Mouth while he recently published a book, Ne vous Déplaise , bringing together a wide range of flash tattoos.

You can obviously find most of Jean André's work in the store or on the website of The Woods Gallery.

As you will have understood, you don't need to get a tattoo to take a piece of Jean André's work with you!
