The day I got my first Tattoo

The idea was not something I did take  lightly because it was permanently there for everybody to see for the rest of my life. I made a sketch of what I did like to have don, made my way down to the Tattoo Shop where there were all kinds of people waiting. I did show the drawing of my choice to the Artist and agreed on a prize.

When you enter a Tattoo Shop and see what other people are having don in a way of different Tattoos it is plain to see the average Tattoo is very similar  stock pictures. I needed one whit some history behind it to make sense otherwise. why doing it.

Tattooing is an Art and the people that create amazing pictures love what they are doing it is a passion for them. You need many hours training to do what they can.


Born somewhere in Danmark after the second War, 1944 was the year one of the best. I was left on the Church step somebody told me later not sure if I did care. Spend many days playing in the snow like most kids did in that ages. My schooling was normal education but when I reached 15 I lost interest. My schooling got replaced with an apprenticeship that lasted 4 years. Army training was my next stop what I did like. After that, it was back to make furniture, with a trade that was not a money spinner I decided to Emigrate to New Zeland.
