Marios Dupont

People - Issue 19

It all started when I got involved with music and especially the extreme sound. You quickly start to get acquainted with the idea of tattoos as many artists have tattoos. In my opinion it is the destiny of each musician who finds another way of expression beyond the lyrics and the music, another element that composes stage appearance especially when you're the frontman of a metal band. For me my tattoos reflect such a story; a life attitude towards everyday appearances, fears and free expression of ideas. I also like that in Greece people have started to be liberated with the idea of having tattoos and it doesn’t bother me at all that “everybody” gets tattooed because I think everyone has something to express through them, and that everybody “supports” this idea differently through his everyday life. Finally I want to say a big thank you for your invitation and support. This is skin of existence... Marios Dupont - Karma Violens - Lucifer's Child.
