What's the best thing about your job?

- The best part is that I can live doing something I'm passionate about. And it is a varied job.

If you had to tattoo the same motive for the rest of your life, what would it be?

- I love the variation. I tattoo in many styles and do a lot of motives. It's very satisfying to one day make a big traditional eagle with fat contours and hard whip shading and then to make a delicious snake bun with fineline. But if I have to choose, I can answer pigs in any style.

What do you do when you’re not working?

- Much of my life revolves around tattooing. Often, I work even when I'm not working. Drawing etc. I'm also a nerd of rank. (Something that is often seen in my work) So some time goes into games and movies.

How did you became a tattoo artist?

- Since before the internet I was interested in the tattoo industry and everything was more difficult. I had to find someone who was a good artist and start by getting tattooed by that person. Build up a good relation. It was really hard to buy (tattoo machines?) back then. I drew tattoos and other tattoo artists made them on clients. 

It was the early 90s, though, so you had to work hard to get somewhere. 

My good friend Peter, who I work with today asked me if I wanted to work with him and thought I should do this full time so I got myself an apprenticeship. When Peter moved to another studio I stayed and took over the place that become Tatueringsstudion. 

If you had to tattoo the same motive for the rest of your life, what would it be?

- Roses!

What do you do when you’re not working?

- Haha, I'm a family man! I hang out with family and friends. I'm living my life without social media, like back in the days.
