Helsinki Ink Tattoo Convention

Helsinki Ink Convention is held every year at Kaapeli ‘Cable Factory’. This was the 21st year of the show, Europes 2nd oldest tattoo convention after Berlin.

I’ve been at this event every year since 2010. It’s an awesome tattoo convention with something new or different to offer every year. Luckily I have a few repeat customers who get tattooed every year.

Shared my booth with Seth Ciferri also from Portland. It was awesome working together at the show.

Food

Food is a big part of any culture. These images are from one of my favorite Bakeries on Södermalm. Typical that we go out to eat or get coffee before starting a work day at Stockholm Classic Tattoo.

SCT

A few tattoos from Stockholm.

Healed Tattoos

Here are a couple of healed tattoos from my past.

Sleeve

Here is a Swedish sleeve I’m working on. This client travels from Olso to have these tattoos put on at Stockholm Classic Tattoo. In a single session we did the Eastern Flower, Skull flame with Swallow, and Light house with Rose. Doing work like this is what keeps me going back to Sweden.

Never Trust a Skinny Chef

Here are some of my tattoos, collected around the world. Work here made in Portland, Seattle, Oakland, San Francisco, Stockholm, Brighton, Oxford, London, Oslo, Nashville, Atlanta, Bend, Dallas, Washington DC, and Ang Thong, Thailand. A good story behind who made every tattoo and how I got to those different cities.
