A first for and starting it off with a tiny little Bronze Age banger boat from Bornholm, Denmark. It’s always fun do to petroglyph tattoos!

Thank you for waiting two years to get your first tattoo and traveling that far! Thanks for your trust and nerdy museum restoration and conversation talk.
Hope to see you soon and take care of that little guy! Safe travels home!

Super awesome Appa (drawing made by Zokka) for Nina!

This is from probably my favorite cartoon / anime of all time called Avatar the last Airbender. Loved this show as a child, binged the annual ATLA marathons on Nickelodeon and still think it's one of the best series ever produced. If you haven't seen it I highly freaking recommend you do. Like NOW.

Thank you Nina for letting me tattoo this tiny part of this amazing story on your body forever in my favorite dotted style. This is pretty much a dream come true! Take care of him! Yip Yip!

Ibex tattoo for my friend Erik.

This Ibex cave painting was found in the Cave of Niaux in south western France and is dated back to 13.500 to 12.500 BC. Having stone age cave paintings face any other direction than to the left or right (profile) is very unusual and rare. Since it's so uncommon this cave painting is believed to be either two Ibex bumping heads fighting or one Ibex seen from behind (I think the second one is more plausible). But scientists still can't really figure out which version is more likely.

As always thanks to Erik who is as big of a stone age cave painting enthusiast as I am for giving me the opportunity to tattoo more cave paintings and to play with unusual placements for each tattoo. It's always a pleasure to have you and I can't wait to give you your next stone age cave painting tattoo!

Friendship Venus from Gönnersdorf tattoo for L. and L.

These figurines are depicting women bodies and are dated to be 15.000 - 11.500 years old. They were found as carvings in stone as well as tiny carved wooden figurines and are supposed to show fertility with enhancing the breasts and waist aka b***y.

Thank you so much for choosing this wanna do and letting me actually tattoo it twice :D

It was such a pleasure tattooing you too. Hope the Venusseses, Veni, Veniae, Venuse bring you lots of joy!

One very special hunter with wolf dog piece for .

Thank you for trusting me with your first one and giving me such an amazing opportunity to do what I love which is everything stone agey. This for a change is an original from me inspired by all the amazing Stone Age cave paintings out there and just the start of an even bigger Stone Age-esque sleeve. Can’t wait to continue!

Wanna do inspired by the Venus figurines from Gönnersdorf, Germany.

These figurines are depicting women bodies and are dated to be 15.000 - 11.500 years old. They were found as carvings in stone as well as tiny carved wooden figurines and are supposed to show fertility with enhancing the breasts and waist aka b***y.

I love how simple they are and even if nowadays only showing b***s and b***y would be inappropriate and degrading women and female looks it’s kinda cool to see how the people back in the Stone Age celebrate the sacred shape of female bodies and how they are bringing new life into this world.

Hey everyone!

I'm so sorry for the radio silence the past few month but life has just been busy and I have some not so pleasant news.

Unfortunatley I've hurt my right wrist in the end of May and haven't been able to tattoo since. I've been to several doctors and got a few tests and NMRIs done.

The prognosis is that I won't be able to tattoo for at least 5 more months and after that I can only take on smaller projects until I'm fully recovered which I don't know when this will be.

I'm so sorry for everyone I've had to cancel and I'm also sorry for everyone new who's interested in my work and to whom I won't be able to provide what you're asking for.

Therefore until further notice I won't be tattooing. Fingers crossed for quick recovery!

Thank you guys so much for understanding and your patience! It means alot!

A project I started a while ago before my wrist decided to give up and the government told us not to tattoo anymore.

Me and my client put this together inspired by kiever rus ornaments and decor found on various objects from that time.
The wiggly organic lines are very much intentional and were specifically asked for which I love.
More like this please! Which will happen because he wants his other arm to be exactly the same so I am looking forward to finish both your lower arms as soon as my wrist lets me. So stay tuned for part 2.

Thank you so much for your trust, can't wait to do your other arm!

The ink is actually extra special since she collected that beautiful black blue-ish charcoal from a tree that was hit by lightning.

And now for something slightly different. The one and only iconic Appa drawing from Sokka.

ATLA was by far one if my favorite series to watch as a kid and actually still is.

I've always wanted to make a stone age -y version of this appa drawing but for some reason never did.
But here you go, there it is!
I'm happy :D
I hope you enjoy it too!
Next time my post will be more prehistoric-related again, promise.

He's also up for grabs if you're interested!

Tattoo inspired by the lion-man from Hohlestein, Germany.

Shout out to my amazing flatmate who said "f**k yeah!" to this design! Thank you so much, you have no idea how much I enjoyed doing this!

The lion-man has several parallel markings shown as lines on its left arm (swipe) which are interpreted as tattoos or scarifications. As always no one really knows for sure but I like both ideas of those markings being decorative additions to the body.

This figurine carved out of mammoth ivory is one of the oldest pieces of art in human history dating back to 35.000 - 40.000 BC. Concidering our cultural lack of prehistoric or tribal/community (such as Inuit or Maori) evidence of tattoos in europe (besides Ötzi) I like the idea of this being partly something that could've been a cultural tattoo handed down as a ritual marking of spirituality or a sign for belonging to a community. Seeing this and knowing it's a tattoo/scarification/body decoration from european people makes me feel a little more connected to our ancestors here in central europe/Germany.

Last tattoo of a wild 2020!

The benifits of having another just as stone age obsessed person as me living with me who already has a bunch of stone age cave painting tattoos made by me. It's his 3rd stone age tattoo I made for hik this year an I'm such a lucky person to be able to tattoo my favorite things for the last thing I do in 2020 even though it's Rona times. Thank you as always! Can't wait for our next project!

This reindeer bear combo was carved on a stone plate from La Marche dating back to 18.000-14.000 BC.

I wish you all a great start into 2021!!!

So if you feel like this might be yours please send me a DM. Since its a prehistoric design I wouldn't mind tattooing it several times. This would even bring us as a community closer together in my opinion.
Or if you're keen this lion-man also has several lines carved into the bottom of his left foot ;)

Wanna do

You guys know how much I love random patterns from stone age cave painting sites. They have a weird fascinating look and I'd love to know if they have a deeper meaning or if someone was just procrastinating or in an apprenticeship trying his/her best. Nobody will ever know but here are two I really like and if someone is random enough to give them a new home I'd love to tattoo them for you!
If you're interested please send me an email to the email mentioned on my bio!
