The client wanted a traditional Marquesan tattoo to reflect his story about overcoming hardships. After enough research I found the necessary symbols and style to do his story justice.
The central piece of the design is the demon head being caged in by rows of shark teeth, which represent strength and protection against threats and evil spirits coming both from the outside and from within.
The pair of eyes at the top represent the watchful eyes of his ancestors and a connection to his roots.
Along the side of the demon head and around the biceps are several different markings representing family members and the close bonds between them.
The spirals represent time and change.
This was a heavily experimental piece, done purely for relaxation. It’s actually showing the front of the body while the head is facing the opposite direction, an attempt to illustrate ambivalence. The strings/staircase play a significant role as well.

Dear friends and strangers from near and far!
As some of you may know, I have a habit of throwing the contents of my imagination on paper and various other available surfaces. The result of several years of practicing this will be publically displayed for some time in Aarhus, and you are all invited to come and check it out.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with my tendency to create stuff,
A laid-back opening party will take place on September 7th, starting at 14:00 where free cake will be served to the first 60 people who show up. Regrettably, we don’t serve drinks, but if you feel like bringing a few beers and hanging out, feel free.
You’re welcome to invite your friends to the event!
The exhibition will be open on weekdays from 8:00 – 15:00 for two months afterwards.
This was a gift for a couple of my good friends.

It measures 2,55m x 1,30m (roughly 8’4” x 4’3”….and I’m 161cm tall, you do the math) and took me 2 months of hard work to finish.
This is a painting about change and choices and creating and self-expression. You can let misfortunes drain the life out of you or you can use them to feed pretty things, filtering bad blood through pure white flowers.
Just a simple, stylized painting. Red is fun.
