This week was spent in beautiful Copenhagen in Denmark where I was working at The Sailors Grave with Zooki, Jesper and of course Judd and Marija Ripley. They have a lovely bright spacious studio and I was happily given all I needed to settle in after a friendly welcome. These guys and gal sure know how to knock out some top notch tattooing. I was kept busy doing more mandala and other patterned stuff. I got to catch up with an old pal Leigh who has relocated to Copenhagen and we also caught up with our pals from Skindred as they were passing through town on tour. Oh and of course we went to see the Little Mermaid statue…..
Here is a sample of the stuff I did whilst at the shop – thanks for looking.

Tacky title but I really can’t think of anything else to write……. Oh well. I’ve had the opportunity to do some fun work here in Melbourne and have actually photographed some.
First up is Sri Ganesh on Sandy – the photo’s didn’t come out so well but I liked this shot and it does show the detail so I thought I’d include it in this post.
Chris came in and had a bug mandal and bee done – I loved doing this and hope he is happy with the result.
A lucky chance brought in this piece as Leonie was ill therefore I stepped in and redrew a sketch brought in by the customer.
Another piece of luck as Richie came in off the cuff at Tattoo Magic and I had him come in twice and we did these pieces – in the bottom photo the tattoo is a week old and almost all healed up.
Kapitan Voodoo aka Fat Knee Nik had this colour mandala jabbed on to his, later swollen, knee. I’ll get a healed shot of this soon with any luck as I’m going to be doing the other knee.
Amy had an islamic inspired mandala on her feet – she changed her mind halfway through and went without colour – no problem.
Kayci had a colourful seahorse with mandala done – it almost matched her hair at the time (not shown but believe me)…..
Sam had his first tattoo – ‘Eyes’ he said…..
Miss Cutie-Kills had a fun traditional mermaid doing. Nice and bright…..
Paul wanted a simple origami swan – nice one mate.
