TESS is a versatile artist born in Paris and raised in Charleroi. Destined to be a doctor, she moved to Brussels at age 16. But moving there unleashed her creativity, and she carved her own path.

As a mixed-race woman, TESS is inspired mainly by dualities and loves to question them. With a passion for the body and how to adorn it, she works as a body piercer, jewelry designer, tattoo artist, and gemologist. She also does graffiti and urbex photography.

For TESS, life is about following your heart and giving your best. A life spent without regrets!

As we say in French: “Au pire on meurt” (at worst, we die).
