You can find ephemeral tattoos, declined products, and even needle tattoos, there is something for everyone. And since we found the concept super cool in Big City Life, we decided to try it for you and give you our opinion!
Unpublished in Nantes: la Rose à Georgette settled in rue du Maréchal Joffre
New and especially unprecedented in Nantes, the Rose à Georgette has established residence at 66 rue du Maréchal Joffre, a few steps from the Cathedral. A place where you will fall in love just by walking through the door. Laure and Nicolas put the suitcases in a place that they designed and restructured with the help of craftsmen. Now that the work is done, they are ready to welcome you and believe us, they put the small dishes in the big ones!
On the program, temporary tattoos. A true expertise that cannot be found anywhere else in the City of Dukes. With models, all made by Nicolas and Jagua ink (a fruit imported from the Amazon) natural and made in France, it is now possible to get a tattoo, just for a few days. 10 to 15 days to be precise, depending on the skin. A good alternative when you are not ready to skip the needle or when you are not sure about your project. why yes the possibilities are limitless with the ephemeral tattoo, all motifs are obtainable!
And if you are ready to heal your skin for life, Nicolas Gremaud is here to help! He is the one who makes all the temporary tattoo collections. He offers you lamps of flowers, lettering… All this in his style, which we have to admit that we like very much! And if you have an idea for a project, you can talk to him, he can advise you.
The shop also offers rejected products. tattooed candlesmade by a religious candlestick maker in Le Puy en Velay. Soaps and balms to maintain your tattoos, because yes, temporary or permanent, the tattoo must be clean and hydrated. tattooed walls, which are large black and white murals then tattooed on them, as you can see in the photo of this article! You also have the option to buy temporary tattoo kit with reusable stencils many times so you can do it at home and Jagua ink that we talked about before. All these products are available in store and also on their website! And a little bonus point, they are all made in France, in an eco-responsible approach and what a difference it makes!
We tried for you
Because we couldn’t leave the shop without trying it, we chose to try the ephemeral tattoo on the forearm.
We can guarantee that our journalist did not suffer for the writing of this article, no needles were used. As with a real tattoo, a stencil was placed on his skin to transfer the design he chose. So, it only took time to go over the lines with Jagua ink and then dry with a hair dryer. In about thirty minutes, she had her tattoo, well hidden under a small bandage that she had to keep for about an hour. Then he cleaned the area and voila!
A little hydration every day and after a week, his little poppies are still there! Experience therefore fully validated by Big City Life!
So if you like tattoos, somewhat unusual experiences and the discovery of new practices, we advise you to go to Georgette’s rose !
