Prints for Japan

We have finally got the prints for Japan ready and for sale on the Conspiracy Inc. blog. All the money from these prints will go directly to Red Cross since we have an insider with them. On top of that we have a special sale on the rest of my print to get more money for Japan. All money made from any other print or flash bought with this print will be donated to Red Cross as well. Read all about it on the shop blog so run over there and shop...GO!! THIS way! 

This is the print for sale. Limited to 100 pieces. Hand signed and numbered. On 300 gram A3 sized paper. And no... the watermark is not on the print.

On the Conspiracy blog you will also find a list of other ways to support Japan through other artists so check those links out as well.

no title

Hello dear blog readers. It is good to be back and even though terrible things have happened since last time, things are still well in the land of the vikings. Japan...not so much. That is why we had to cancel our trip this time. Japan is our second home and it was a tough decision to cancel and stay home when we felt like we were supposed to be there and help. In the end we realized that we couldn't do anything in Japan other that be in the way and to worry our friends and family back home. I mean, if our friends in Tokyo was thinking about skipping town why should we go there. For what? So we decided to wait and instead try to help from back home in Denmark. That's why we are making a print of my latest painting. All the money will go to Japan. There will be different packages to choose from for those who want to buy more and support Japan more. I will be selling the usual prints and flash together with the new print but a bit cheaper than normal and that money will also be going to Japan. I will be auctioning off the original painting and that money will also go to Japan. On top of that we will try to make a charity day at the Conspiracy Inc. where I will be tattooing (maybe walk-in style) for the cause and we will be selling prints and stuff and some of Amalie hats as well. This will hopefully happen sometime in April so keep and eye on this blog or the Conspiracy Inc. blog for updates. The prints should be with us in a few days so keep an eye out for that as well. I will also try to gather a list of other artists who something similar to gather money to the land that has given us so much.

Mean while in Copenhagen this happened!

First Sylvain and Innina came by from Geneva... and brought chokolade.
Sylvain wanted a workaholic demon who was having himself a little tea break. A little rminder to himself to remember not to work ALL the time. Boy do we know about that feeling. Maybe I should get one of those as well.

Innina wanted to get a piece inspired of a painting done by her grandfather. So i did my version of his roses and we added a few of her tools of the trade behind them. 

Anita from the Uk was originally supposed to get tattooed by me on the London convention a few years ago but I had to Cancel her. She came by and finally got her piece. She wanted it super bold and simple and it was super fun to get back to just one bold outline and rough shading and few colours. Good times.

My norwegian homeboy Martin came back to get some more colour in his chest. It is almost done... almost. One small session and we are done and done. I also got me a picture of what we finished last time but the skin was still a bit shiny so we will have to wait with the final picture but you'll get the idea.
Bernie, the burning priest. 

That's it for this time. Now I gotta do stuff... See you soon.

The number of the beast

 Today I have 666 evil followers!! Thanks for the support.

Snakes. Why'd it have to be snakes?

Richard and Ria came back for some new tattoos. It was nice for once to start and finish a few pieces so I could have something to show here on the blog.

Richard got him self a tribute to his favourite Indiana Jones movie, Raiders of the lost ark. He wanted it to be subtle so we went with a cobra coiled around the Idol from the opening of the movie. Geeks will know.

Ria likes her bird tattoos and is aiming for the award for lady with most bird tattoos. She does have a bit of a way to go but we are working on it. You can see the two budgies we did last time on her other leg. This time...more love birds. A magpie with some bling bling for the other magpie. Are you trying to tell your boyfriend something? Any signals here?

It was great to have them over again and we are already looking forward to the next visit.

I think there was a bunch of things that I wanted to write here but I have forgotten. Maybe next time. Hopefully it won't be as long a break this time.

I have just posted some photos of my grandma on the photoblog. We went to my dads 60 years birthday yesterday. did a hit n run photoshoot of my 84 old grandma as a present for my dad and to have a photo of my grandma myself.

Sigh no more

The frustration about not having anything new to post here on my blog has now forced me to make a blog post...without pictures!! Ughrrr..! I hate blogging without pictures but I don't wanna post a pitty picture either. The hard life of a blogger.

It feels like forever since I have finished anything that I could get a good picture of. It seams like I have been starting a tons of things and finished a bunch of old pieces and some new ones where I just couldn't get a good picture because swelling or bleeding or the annoying contrast between old and new. Even though I have posted pictures on my twitter and Instagram it just doesn't feel the same as keeping you dear followers updated. So once again sorry for the absence but it has nothing to do with not wanting to blog. 

I wanna use this post for something good anyway. UPDATES!!!

First up: Artshow. I did a flash painting for the Cut N Color for the Tattoo Flash show at The Pretty Pretty Collective in San Francisco. It will be for sale but since we want you people near by to go see it and the rest of the pieces in person there will be no pictures of it until after the opening. Go check it out. It should be a great show with some great artists. I am stoked to have been invited to join. Wish I could be there for the opening! Hopefully we will be able to drop by San Francisco on our holiday this summer and say hi to the nice people behind the last two shows that I have been a part of. 
The show opens on March 12. Go here for more details.

Our Japan trip is getting closer! Can't wait to be back in my happyplace!! 
Workdates should be kinda in place so if you wanna get something done in Japan then write me an email with idea, placement, size and what dates you are available for. Write me on
As always I will be working with the amazing Ink Rats in Koenji, Tokyo. You can also email Hata on to book an appointment. We will be in Japan from the 30th of March till the 7th of May

I have also been invited to join the Tokyo Tattoo Convention organized by Tokyo Hardcore from the 29th of April to the 1st of May. Again should you be around and want to get a piece done then send me a mail with placement and Idea but remember that it is on a convention so there will be places that I won't be doing in order to not destroy my back. 
More details about the show when I get them. 

Bizarre magazine has just finished a thingy about me that will be in an upcoming issue. Looking forward to see the finished print with fancy pictures from the new shop. 

Speaking of shop. Some might have seen previews of the new workroom on the Conspiracy blog. It looks amazing!! There is still many things that needs to hung on the walls but it is already looking really really epic. Flora have been changing our drawing room too. Looks better than ever but also needs a few last touches. Drop by to see for your self.

Speaking of Flora: Check out her new and improved website that she made! 

I am currently trying to get into making a bunch of paintings for tshirts, prints, stickers and businesscards. Got a few prints that I wanna do but I'm trying to figure out what size and paper and so on. Hopefully soon there will be new goodies to spend your hard earned money on. 

It is time for me to go renew my passport and then go finish another old piece that I won't be able to get a good picture of... Sigh...
Thursday and friday should be new one shots so hopefully there will be something new to look at soon. 

Until then.
