I just wanted to check in with you guys who still follows and check this blog...to you guys, Thanks for the patience and for sticking around.
I am writing you from Berlin where we now live. We haven't moved into our new home yet since all our stuff won't get here until monday. Until then, we are staying with our amazing friend Sarah who has been such a big part of us getting this amazing place.
I don't know when we will have internet at our new place so I figured I better do this now while I have some internet.
As always I feel that there is so many things to say and tell, but not enough time.
One thing I feel I need to comment on is my waiting list and people on it. Amalie, who takes care of all my bookings and the waiting list, recently opened up the list and started writing, I don't know, how many of the people on the list only to get a few replies... but far from enough. So if you are on my waiting list, and haven't gotten a mail yet, please check your mail or spam filter. If you got a mail, please reply nicely to the mail either to confirm or to politely let us know that you don't need to be on the list any more. The reason that I stress that part is that we have had a few unfortunate responses from people who no longer wishes to be on the list. I really don't mind or even really care if you don't want to get tattooed by me anymore, whatever reason you might have and I totally respect that, but there is no reason to reply in a rude and disrespectful manner to my wife who is trying to finally give you an appointment. If you really feel that you found a better place to get tattooed, then good for you and best of luck, but then maybe you should have been responsible enough to remove yourself from the list instead of replying in a rude tone and wasting our time. I mean, if you did find a better tattooer then it's a good thing that you DIDN'T get tattooed by me.
It's mostly the disrespect and waste of time that gets to us because there is so many really awesome people who DO wanna get tattooed. We really really want to make everybody's experience with us as good as possible and we are trying our best to improve our methods to make everybody happy, even people who hasn't gotten tattooed yet. We really are. But we can't guarantee when you will get an appointment. Sorry.
I am so grateful for all the amazing customers that I get to tattoo so "losing" someone that has no respect or can't even commit to reply to emails is not really someone we are sorry to lose. It just means that there will be more time for the awesome people who we do enjoy spending time with. While I am on this subject... I have mentioned my social awkwardness before and it is something that bugs me a lot. To most people I might seem really open and social but the truth is that I am super shy around most people. I don't wanna get into that right now but it has come to my attention that some people has seen this as me being a snob and even rude. This has not been my intention and it really bugs me that while I try to make time for everybody, who is visiting the shop, even though most of my days are really busy, there is still people who will go out and talk shit about how much of a snob I am and how important I feel I am. People will always talk shit and usually I try not to pay to much attention to it but when I know that I have treated someone nice just to find out that they talk shit to other people, I get pissed. What do you get from doing so?
I just needed to get this out of my system and it has been something that had bugged me a while now. I try, even on the busiest days, to take my time to meet everyone who comes to our shop and make them feel welcome. But maybe, if you show up on a walk-in day, I won't have time to entertain you all day, and for that I'm sorry but don't take it as me being "too good" to talk to you. I'm just busy tattooing someone so that THEY don't feel that I'm "too good" to tattoo them. You know?
So there... that was it! Sorry for the rant. I tried to make it as short as I could.
So again... IF you are on the waiting list and want to stay there, please reply to the mail you have received or keep an eye out for a mail soon. If your not sure if we got the right email address for you or if your on the list please check in on firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
Also check the new and improved FAQ on the Conspiracy Inc. Blog.
So back to fun and happy stuff.
We can't wait to let you all know more about the new shop and stuff and we will do so as soon as possible. There is also a bunch of new tattoos that I wanna show... but they are on my other computer on its way here so you will have to wait a bit longer.
There is also a bunch of other cool projects and stuff that I have been working on like photos for Pet The Preacher and Hound that I will post on my photoblog soon I hope.
I'm also super proud and stoked that I did my first design for Mastodon, a band that I really really like so I was super excited that they asked me to make them a little something. I will post that later too.
Speaking of shirts that I did...
I will end this post with not just one, but two music videos featuring the limited edition Uncle Allan Black Metal shirt.
Two different styles, but both great awesome peeps and bands.
First is my Canadian homies Cancer Bats in the video for "Bricks and Mortar" Feat. my stupid face on Liams body
Soooo because of this German thing called GEMA I can't watch the other video I wanted to show with my Danish Homeboys Specktors also Feat. my stupid face.
Try this link though... It should bring you to their video for their song "lågsus"
Sorry for the long rant mail. I promise more happy good posts will come soon. Promise. Because so many awesome things are happening at the moment!! Foooooo REALS!!!
See ya soon!

Sooo... It has been a while...again! This time i feel more than ever that there has been a good excuse for the long break. You see, other than being super busy working and making stuff ready for the London convention, we have been waiting for some news. News that I felt was so important that I needed confirmation before blogging about it.
Some, or maybe even most of you already know about this by now but for the rest of you, here it is...
Conspiracy Inc. including Amalie, Lucifer and myself (and all our stuff) is moving to Berlin. Yes, Berlin as Berlin, Germany.
There is so many things to tell about this new adventure of ours and I am sure that many of you will have many questions about this. Before you spam us with all these questions, take a look at the Conspiracy Inc. Blog and also keep an eye on it for further updates because this thing is so new that we still havn't figured everything out yet. So please be patient.
So from December this year we can be found in this red building of ours in Schöneberg, Berlin. I know that it is short notice for those of you who haven't finished your tattoos yet and I am sorry about that. Just be happy that we didn't move to Japan. I will try to come back once in a while but I don't know when or how often so please remember that Berlin is right next door. I am planing on working weekends if that can help people out a bit. I have to say that I am super happy and grateful that all the customers that we have told this has been super excited and supporting about this and we are looking forward to see them in Berlin. But enough of this. Again... Keep an eye on the Conspiracy Blog for updates.
This place will be epic, I tell ya!! If you thought that the old Conspiracy was awesome then wait till you see this place! See that red building in the picture? Yeah, thats all ours to play with!! Whaaaaat? Yep! This will be our home and shop and playground!! I could go on forever about all our plans but I feel that I need to get this post finished so it can hit the internet in this century!
I so wanna talk more about the move but let's move on a bit! Other things is going on while we are planning our next step towards world domination.
For example the London convention.
I decided to continue the walk-in flash thing from last year and it was a success! Working like that makes my convention so much easier and stressless... well stressless while I'm there because as always I have to make stuff in the last minute before going. This year I wanted to do some new paintings for the convention. This resulted in a brand new Rose flash set. 5 sheets of only roses. This came "handy" at the convention where I ended up free handing 3 hand roses from the with the set as reference. Awesome!! I finished a few other paintings that we made a limited run of prints of plus a few older ones that I never got to print before. There is still a few left so check out Conspiracy Inc. merch section.
I also did a few tattoos from last years metal flash but I am gonna save them for the ongoing Black Metal Book project so you will have to wait a bit to see them.
Preview of the rose flash. For sale on the conspiracy Inc blog.
As always we were working together with the awesome and talented Chriss Dettmer. The convention went smoothly and we met a bunch of old friends and got to meet a few new ones as well. Unfortunately I can be somewhat of a social retard so sometimes I get too shy to walk up and say hi to people. Other times I just have a hard time recognising people from the internet. So if i didn't say hi it was most likely one of those reasons. Next time you see me... just come say hi to me... I promise I will be nice.
A huge thank you to everyone who got tattooed or bought merch or just came over to say hi! It meant a lot to us!!
Ok, gotta move on... still so many things to tell.
Ok. Next topic...
We will have a guest at our shop next week. From the 24th to the 28th of october our new friend Davee Blows will do a few cool tattoos so check him out HERE if you have facebook or see some of his stuff on the Conspiracy Inc. Blog. Looking forward to be working with this dude for a few days!
He will also be joining me and the Dino Baby for our annual Halloween tattoo bash. This unholyness will take place on Saturday the 27th of october most likely from around 14:00 till as late as we want. Same rule as last year, walk-in from Halloween flash and it is half priced if you're dressed up... Well sheet over the head doesn't count... make an effort for the discount people. Even if you don't wanna get tattooed then dress up and drop by for some snack and beers and stuff. Come hang out and have some fun. It will most likely be the last Conspiracy Inc. party in this shop!
So bring your ghoul or what ever hellbeast you're friends with , and help os make this an awesome goodbye Halloween.
If you forgot how awesome it was last year then check it out HERE.
Ok. I have been writing on this post for three days now so I better finish up soon.
But I have to remember to tell a bit about some different paintings I did. I did a design for a Limited Edition Halloween shirt for Mastodon. Do you think I was super stoked to get asked to do that?? How about hell fucking yeah!!! I will show the painting when I get the shirt.
I also did a painting for my good homie Electric Pick. You see, he has been working on publishing his comic The Red Box and he wanted a bunch of artist to do a little thing for it. Go preorder it NOW!!!
One more thing though!!
We will be back in Japan from the 30th of october till the 16th of November. I will be doing a few tattoos at Inkrat Tattoo as always. So if you wanna get something done then send Hata a mail with size, placement and idea and if you are on a budget or not.
You can write him at email@example.com.
If you have any questions about design or other things send me a mail on firstname.lastname@example.org. If you book in you can email me anyway so I know what I will be doing before I get there.
Ok!! I think that has to be it for now. Dinner is almost ready and if I don't press send before eating it will be another day before you see this!
See you all soon!

Last saturday was the opening of my black metal art show. I want to send out a huge thanks to every one who came to the show. It ment a lot to me. Also a huge thanks to all my friends who helped me prepare it and make everything run smoothly. You all rock!!
This post has been on its way since monday but it can be hard to find the time to blog when you have to work and hang out with awesome friends who are here to visit so I will have to make it as short as possible now... actually got to go to work right now..
Here is a few quick shots from the show. Time was against me so these are just some quick shots of the walls to give you guys an idea about what was there.
A lot of the paintings and photos is still up for sale so if you are interested in buying an original or a print of one of the photos send me an email.
All photos and paintings comes framed as you see them here. There is no prints of the paintings. So if you are interested send me a mail for size, availability and prizes. Please mention which one you are interested in and maybe a second option.
There is also a few of the limited Uncle Allan Black Metal shirts left and some of the stoner metal chick shirts so let us know if you are interested in those bad boys!
The stoner shirt can be found HERE and there is pictures of the black metal one on my wifes awesome post about the show HERE
They will be up for two more days and then Monday the shop will be put back to normal again. So you still have a chance to see them all in real life.
Hope you like them. Gotta run... see you soon!

I was gonna make a fancy flyer and all but time is running out so now I'm just gonna post some info about the upcoming Black Metal Night.
On August the 18th at 11pm (23.00) we will have an Black Metal artshow at the shop... you know, the Conspiracy Inc.
That's right. We will turn our studio into an art gallery for one evil night. I feel that there is a lot of people who couldn't make it to the show in germany So I have decided to put my "faces of black metal" up at the shop. On top of the "faces" paintings I will have my photos from the dark and grim forests of Norway and Fantoft stavchurch. There will also be a few new pieces and painting to mix it up a bit so there should be plenty to look at.
Most of the paintings and photos will be for sale so if you are interested in buying an original piece drop by and see if there is anything you like... well, drop by anyway and have a beer or a glass of red wine.
There will also be some new merch for sale, made specially for the occasion.
So please join us for this unholy night at
2200 Copenhagen N
Saturday the 18th at 11pm.
(we will keep it open as long as there is people... or we pass out)
Since I was late with the flyer, please help me spread the word any way you can.
I hope to see many of you there!
