 NICK   Do you think people judge you and label you because of your tattoos?   Most of my family do, just because they are very old ways. I mean, they don’t mind me having tattoos, but sometimes they’re like, you need to stop, you know? Tattoos in a way for me are just expressing yourself very artistically, and just who you are as a as person. But I’ve been stopped before by people who really liked my tattoos, so, it really depends.

  DEVIN      Comment prends-tu soin de ton corps, de ton esprit et de ton âme?   Je pense que c’est important de bien manger, faire de l’exercice, s’éduquer, lire, penser, avoir des discussions, voir ses amis. Travailler, tsé, sans travail on s’ennuie, on fait le contraire.   Crois-tu que tu corresponds aux normes de beauté sociale pour les hommes?   J’ai jamais pensé à ça. Mais dans le contexte à Montréal, ça dépend de ce que tu essaies de vendre.

 GILLE   How do you take care of your body, mind and soul?   First of all, I’m someone who’s very into wellbeing. So, that of course pertains to my physical body, the temple, but also to my mind and my spiritual life. So mind body and soul connection.  I love exercising and playing basketball to stay in shape, stay lookin good, and feelin good.  I am very interested and involved with natural and sustainable products. I feel like the body is a organic ecosystem, so I feel like for me it’s best to use things that are also in that nature. You know, I’m a vegetarian and like eating organic as often as possible. I don’t eat McDonald’s or shit like that. For me, it’s definitely just doing those things and making sure I’m right.
