“The story behind my first tattoo? I can still recall it. A late evening one September I was chatting with a friend in a bar. “I am afraid to have a tattoo.” I told him. “I am afraid that eventually I will get tired of it.” “Then you are not ready to have a tattoo” was his reply.

Your relationship with your tattoo has to be sentimental than based on aesthetics. A tattoo demonstrates your inner self to the others.

It was then that I realized the real notion of tattoos, and started thinking seriously about having one. And it was then that I also realized that in life there are other things that also remain unaltered. Things we love. Things with a strong background and a history of their own.

Hennessy is one them. With a 250 year history and a recipe that remains unaltered as long. It is from this stability in time that I was inspired my Hennessy cocktail. A cognac that has accompanied so many raising a glass to celebrate their memorable moments in life.”
