Photo essay documenting Rune getting his partial tattoo sleeve over two sessions by Elisabeth Naust at Onkel Henrys Tattooshop in Trondheim, Norway.

I was running late both sessions as they started while I was still at work. Sadly, I didn’t take a lot of photos during the first session as I was on shift that day. Juggling work phone calls and photo documentation is not a good combination and I had a lack of concentration and felt rushed.. The second part of the photo essay is therefore a stronger body of work. I, however, felt I should include some photos taken during the first session to show both inking days.

The essay doesn’t include all the pre-tattooing talks and the designing process between Rune and Elisabeth, but I can assure you that this was not an overnight decision. There were a lot of back-and-forths and deliberations on the sketches until all parties agreed that it would look as nice as Rune (and I) had envisioned.

    1. Yes, Elisabeth is quite talented when it comes to drawing, both with pencils and tattooing ink.
      I don’t think I could ever get a tattoo (so permanent! what if there’s a mistake?!), but I’m happy his turned out so nice.
      It’s black and white with a magenta colour every other inner row in the flower thingy.
