I have had the great fortune to have periodically studied under Henning Jorgensen from Royal Tattoo in Helsingor Denmark and to have been included in his anniversary book. Thirty years Royal Tattoo has been putting out unbelievable works. Helsingor is a quaint little town about an hour train ride north of Copenhagen.
When you leave the train station, there is a town center that welcomes you lined with little shops, as well as the Kronberg castle that Shakespeare had been inspired by when he wrote Romeo and Juliette. Hans Christian Anderson had lived on the same street as the shop. You can tell the is still a essence of Fairy presence thriving to this day. This little town that puts out some of the best tattoos in the world. The weekends transform into a mecca for the Sweds that come over to buy up alcohol that is regulated in their country. It is a trip to watch the change the town goes through each week. I am ever so thankful to have had this experience and to be apart of such a wonderful bunch of folks in this book that share this memory that Henning has offered.
To many more years Henning. Much love and respect, Ms. Mikki
I tattooed the mermaid on Olivia.
We had the pleasure of having Pasha come set up at the shop to photograph some more of our clients and their recent works. Our clients had a blast and were made to feel comfortable in their own skin while Pasha worked her magic.
I am looking forward to working with her in the future for motorcycle and other tattoo projects.

Christopher is a local photographer that I became friends with over the past few years. He and his lady friend Leah came and set up at our shop to photogragh some of our clients this past year.
We are in the process of updating our portfolios with new works.
