Conexão Simple Plan interviews Aaron Della Vedova – Pierre Bouvier’s Tattoo Artist and Friend

Conexão Simple Plan has done an exclusive interview with Pierre Bouvier‘s friend and tattoo artist, Aaron Della Vedovagurutattoo.com, responsible for all the newest tattooes on Pierre’s body. Check the interview below with exclusive images sent by Aaron!

CSP: Hello Aaron, first I’d like to thank you for giving Conexão Simple Plan this interview.

AaaronTattooingPierreCSP: On the first tattoo you did on Pierre, his whole arm with the Chinese carp fish and the Buddha, how long did it take for you to finish the whole piece? And which part of it was the hardest to do?

Aaron: It took approximately 40 hours total. Pierre and the band were recording in Montreal at the time so I flew out and did most of the work there. It was fun getting to know Pierre thru this project and by the end we had started a life long friendship. One that we still share today. Plus it was great visiting Montreal…Great city!

CSP: How was it do have Pierre’s fiance – Lachelle Farrar – around for the job? (We saw a few pictures on Google of her ‘helping you out’ with the tattoo.)

Aaron: Lachelle is a riot! Not only is she beautiful but that girl is full of life! I really enjoyed her company during the long hours of tattooing. Somtimes Pierre would get tattooed for over 10 hours! I even let her throw down a little color and she did amazing! Plus it was cool to see the two of them have that sentimental moment.LachelleTattooingPierre

CSP: Did you help Pierre pick the drawings?

Aaron: He came to me with a general theme and I pretty much took it from there. I started with a rough sketch. We looked at it together and discussed any changes. Then I made another more refined shetch and so on until we reached the final art. Thats pretty much how I do all of my projects.

CSP:Which do you think are Pierre’s influences when the picks a tattoo, in your opinion?

Aaron: I really couldn’t say. You would have to ask him that one. I just know that he has a keen eye for art and design and that he really was drawn towards my particular style.

CSP: Simple Plan fans are really impressed by how good your work is and how good your color scheme seem to be. Can you tell us your secret?

Aaron: Well first off thank you! It’s never gets old hearing that there are people out ther that enjoy the art I create! I try my best to draw my designs in a modern way with an emphasis on application that is grounded in classic japanese fundamentals. So there is an approach in japanese tattooing that sais a good tattoo should be broke up into 3rds. 1/3 should be color, 1/3 should be black (or black and grey) and the final 3rd should be the skin itself. Obviously this is just a rule of thumb and the equations may change slightly depending on the art, placement etc. However I feel that this makes for good tattooing. I also try to focus heavily on composition. It’s not enough to just draw cool subject matter. It all has to be placed in a way that flows with the human body. There are also alot of other small tricks I’ve picked up in the past 20 years but these are the ones that I feel are the most important.

CSP: Of all the tattoos you have done on Pierre so far, which one is your favorite and why?

Aaron: Hahaha…thats like choosing your favorite child! Serioulsy though I do like them all. Although we just finished his side panel that extends all the way down to his ankle and I am very excited about this piece. Mostly because it is so large and also has an octopuss in it which I think turned out great!

PierreslegCloseUpCSP:The last tattoo you worked on him, the one on his leg, took you both three years to be done. Can you tell us more about it? What exactly is the whole picture, all the drawings on his leg?

Aaron: The piece starts out on his rib and depicts a woman who is decorated to be like a sea nymph….or a woman who lives under the sea. She is rising above the water and holding a Conch shell. Above her is a crane flying into the sky. The tattoo then flows down the leg and turns into things that you would see under the water. Mostly it is an octopuss…but on and near the sea floor there are reef fish, a human skull and treasures. Many of these items comtain hidden meanings to Pierre but I wouldn’t feel comfortable trying to relate all that. The bottom line is that is very personal to Pierre and his life story as most tattoos I do are.

CSP: Is Pierre a though guy or does he grimaces while you’re tattooing him? What do you usually talk about during tattoo sessions?

Aaron: Tough for sure. Like I said he was getting tattooed for 10 hours at times which I can tell you is no easy task. Very few of my clients are capaable of lasting that long! We talk about life! Like I said we have become good friends and our wives and kids are good friends as well. We grew into our family lives around the same time and so we have faced many of the challenges that come along with balancing a busy career while still maintaining a healthy marriage and being a great dad! So we discuss these things and differnet philosophies that have assisted us in being more effective. Pierre is deep guy and I really appreciate that about him.

CSP: Last but not least, can you tell us more about your work?

Aaron: I own and work at Guru Tattoo in San Diego California. I have been tattooing for 20 years now. I specialize in large format tattooing. I am pretty booked up but still take on a handful of new clients each year. Moslty I am looking for ideas that I connect with on a creative level. Things that I feel have a lot of potential, given my strengths, to become amazing tattoos! Unfortunatley this means that I can not get to every request that comes my way. However, we have some of the most talented tattooers in the world working with me at Guru so if you are looking for a tattoo that is of the highest creative quality please check out our website at gurutattoo.com. Thanks for talking with me I always love sharing what i do with people that are fans!!!

Conexão Simple Plan wants to thank Aaron Della Vedova again for the wonderful interview! If you are in San Diego, don’t forget to stop by Guru Tattoo to get your own wonderful tattoo.
