My tattoo is made by Haeny and turns 1 year this July!
The story behind how I finally got my tattoo is actually a really good one! Around five years ago I found a tattoo-artist on instagram who did hands down the most incredible tattoos I’ve ever seen. They were like little paintings with details I didn’t think possible and I immediately started following her. At this stage I hadn’t really considered getting a tattoo myself and she was based in Seoul, South Korea, so even the possibility felt very far fetched. After following her for two years the thought of having a tattoo of my own had started to grow and even begun looking at travel options and planning how much money I would need to save to be able to go (Spoiler, flying from Sweden to South Korea is quuuuuite expensive).
Two more years passed and the whole ”flyingtoSeoultogetatattoo”-thing kept shifting from plans to fantasy until last spring. That’s when I found a tattoo-artist in Polen who had a similar style, not as good, but hey, I really wanted my tattoo at this point so I decided to settle with that and reached out to her. Less then a week later, I kid you not, the tattoo-artist from Seoul, whom I’ve been following for five years at this point made an update at her social media that she would do a short tour in Europe that summer and guest tattoo in different cities, including Copenhagen. I’ve never sent an email that fast in my entire life. I actually had to send a followup email with all the things I forgot to write in the first one. I managed to get a slot in Copenhagen and the rest, as they say, is history.
