@jannickewiesehansen talked me into visiting Bergen before heading home from a festival.. damn you!! 😉 So, the adventure continued! A lovely lady asked me to tattoo this when I arrived. It is to commemorate her visit to Scandinavia and the beginning of her travels. After meeting so many different people that tattoo for different reasons and from different cultures it has made me realise why I love my job so much. I have always loved telling stories through my work. Maybe it’s a part of the culture I grew up with in Wales but I don’t aim to do crazy big projects just for the aesthetics. It is a part of it of course but I try my absolute best to honour the ancient arts I work with. Celtic and Norse… the beauty in the ancient work amplifies the point of the effort gone into the art.
But this is a little Viking to accompany a fellow traveller on the beginning of a long journey and a long story. A story that will grow with time.
