I’ve been uploading less and less tattoo photos in this blog, it seems. In reality, I’m just being “picky” on what to show here, as I want to make sure to wait for healed tattoos and then, re-take the photos.

As you might know, when tattoos are fresh they seem to look really awkward and difficult to read with all the shining, peculiar to a newly finished session.

And obviously, when the customer walks out from the door, I have no guarantee I would be able to see that person ( and consequently, the tattoo ) once again.

I’m very thankful with timing when I can manage to meet them again, and get the right moment ( with right natural light, right weather, etc ) to take the photos of the tattoos.

Some take few years. But, I enjoy the encounter.

It’s a good opportunity to re-visit some ideas and ideals from a quite distant, but at the same time, ageless moment from both sides. Experiences and expressions that will be forever present.

Around three hours to complete

Well, I’m getting more and more requests for black and gray tattoos, and I’m pretty stoked about this. Challenge has been the name of the game since I made my move toward  new horizons and I’m ready to take it! My back will not be against the ropes



Rose und Uhr/ Rose and watch tattoo

ca. drei Stunde (Zeichnung Zeit inklusive)


Around three hours to finish, including sketch time



Total zwei sitzung, jeder ca. drei Stunde


Two sessions to finish. Each session 3 hours

Same same, but different. Trying my best to not repeat ideas and to get a room for a little spice, originality wise. The weight always will be on answering the customers request, and then, what can I do from there?  The quest continues
