HENNESSY VERY SPECIAL PRESENTS

ALL I NEED

SUCCESS MEANS CONSTANTLY PUSHING BEYOND YOUR OWN LIMITS. THIS IS OUR TIME.
NEVER STOP. NEVER SETTLE.

Welcome to a different kind of world.
Here the old rules do not apply.
It’s not about making it big.
It’s about making an impact.
It’s about creativity, drive, energy.
Feel this energy on every street, every corner.
So electric you can almost see it, the energy that breaks through convention, that makes new feel old in a minute and goes faster and faster until you can’t catch your breath.

All we need is one move to create a chain reaction.
All we need are our ideas to inspire the world.
All we need is rhythm to tell our story, an obstacle to break through, our hearts to bring hope, our fire to open eyes.
This is our time. The time for the world to run after us, to dance to the beat of our hearts.
All we need is who we are.
HENNESSY
Never Stop. Never Settle.

Beijing-based Chen Jie is a key proponent of this cultural change, giving a new cultural twist to her work, and thus elevating tattoo to new artistic heights. By blending the world of tattoo with traditional Chinese watercolor, she has invented an art form entirely her own : neo-Chinese tattoo.
