"Flying Förtress - La Fortezza Volante" @ Galo Art Gallery / Torino IT

Getting lst things ready for my trip to Italy for my upcoming solo show there. Opening will be September 10th at my friends' Galo Art Gallery in Torino/Italy.


So... I wanted to do something simple, with just flat colours, no shading. Of course, things never happen exactly how I want them ^^'.
Mjölnir / Thor's Hammer

On a side note, look at this, these are some great hammer pendants (I especially like the one on top, it's way more "nordic" than my version) http://varglya.blogspot.com/2010/07/recent-works-more-carvings.html

Thinking Big

Nicht Kleckern... Klotzen.

Nochmal: Happy Birthday, D.!

Verdammt, und schon gleich wieder erwischt!

Science & Knowledge

I wanted to try to do some lettering. I wasn't sure what words to choose, but after seeing so many "faith" and "believe" tattoos, I opted for those words that seems less common ;) (well, actually there's quite an amount of very nice science related tattoos, from equations to artistic rendition of electrons etc.).

Samoan Maori shoulder tattoo design


Here's the 3rd design of my latest sketches in a Samoan inspired tattoo set. This design has some influences from the Maori style, but is mainly filled with Samoan patterns.

I started with a pencil and roughly sketched the outer lines, then traced some tribal patterns:

For these symmetrical Samoan designs it's always a bit of a surprise how the final design will look. I only draw half the design and then mirror it in Photoshop. This seems easy, but it quity tricky to design the patterns in such a way that it doesn't have an obvious vertical line in the center.

Here's a picture of half the design finished:

Samoan tattoo for the shoulder


I have been quite busy for the last few weeks, but I wanted to show you some sketches and tattoo pieces that I did. It's another Samaon/Maori inspired shoulder sleeve I did for my galleries.

As you can read in my previous post, I'm working on a new series of Samoan inspired tattoos for the shoulder, with some influences from the Maori style.

You can find all 3 Samoan sleeves here.

Here's the second sketch I did:

This design is roughly based/inspired by the Sonny Bill Williams tattoo.

It has really detailed tribal elements and covers the upperarm from shoulder to elbow. It wraps around to the biceps and back side of the arm.

You can order the high resolution image of this design, by simply clicking the "buy now" below. You get the high quality files sent by e-mail once I receive your payment.
