Well we once again had a lovely weekend at the Copenhagen Medieval Market in Valby Parken. Despite rain on Sunday the most important was that it was sunny both for the setting up and taking down of the tent. Missed having my friend Kai there, but he had to cover the Faroe Island Convention that we were at last year. However it was cool to have visits from Kai's apprentice Markus as well as two other Top Viking Tattooists... Jesper Mann and Lars Martinen.
Here are a few photos of the weekend.
Did this Vejviser on John the first day... inspired by a piece which I had done on Lars Krutak a few months ago. I have nothing against repeating historical designs as they are not mine to start with. I think of it as "Viking Flash" and although I've done dozens of these designs (and hundreds of other tattooists have used them as well) I think it still is far more interesting than the most original dolphin design :-) Aside from the actual historical vejviser I just freehanded my own spiral to make it a little more individual from person to person
An older Flash design of mine depicting Thor's hammer with the Midgaardsorm wrapped around. The Nordic sagas have many stories about Thor's battles with his nemesis. It was finally nice to do a hand poked version of this :-) I was also a little proud as the client, Lars has sleaves, chest and back all tattooed by Henning Jørgensen from Royal Tattoo
