In January, in the middle of men's fashion week, at the end of rue des Gravilliers, we see Baba and Mamadou. They wear the habit with majesty.

They look like two Maasai warriors, slender and proud.

The best tattoo parlors in Marais

Tattooing, an age-old practice, has long been the prerogative of convicts, dock workers, the underworld and sailors.
