I’ve always felt like an outsider. I was born in Porvoo, Southern Finland, but we moved to Lapland when I was 10 years old. Our new home was in a small village where everyone knew each other and people belonged to their own cliques. Suddenly I was in a situation where I talked different, my … Continue reading Meri

Minerva (Suomeksi/In Finnish)

Olen lapsesta saakka ollut kiinnostunut Egyptin sekä antiikin Kreikan ja Rooman mytologioista. Muistan edelleen kun ala-asteella alettiin käydä läpi tuon ajan tarinoita, miten vaikkapa Pallas Athene syntyi Zeuksen otsan läpi – se maailma tarinoineen vei ihan täysin mennessään. Erityisesti Pallas Athenen otin saman tien omakseni. Pallas Athene on tiedon, viisauden ja strategisen sodankäynnin jumalatar ja … Continue reading Minerva (Suomeksi/In Finnish)

I’ve never been a big fan of tattoos, and when I was younger, I used to say I’d never have one myself. To be honest, I’m still not very fond of tattoos, and I think the skin is more beautiful without them. Nevertheless, I currently have 7+1 tattoos on my skin. In 2011, a friend … Continue reading Daniel

I was 18 years old when I got my first tattoo. I wanted to have something quite small, so I took this little image on my wrist. It’s from the solo album of a Japanese artist called Hyde. He’s also the vocalist of a Japanese rock band, L’Arc~en~Ciel. He said that this album, Roentgen, was […]

Kaisa (Suomeksi/In Finnish)

Aloin suunnitella ensimmäisen tatuoinnin ottamista ollessani vielä alaikäinen. Ajatus ensimmäiseen tatuointiini syntyi, kun makoilin sängyllä ja kuuntelin yhtä lempiyhtyeistäni, Simple Plania. Vaikka kuuntelemassani biisissä ei edes laulettu näitä sanoja, ne vain tulivat yhtäkkiä mieleeni ja päätin, että haluan tatuoida ne iholleni. Ensimmäisen tatuoinnin ottaminen oli jännittävää, mutta kesti onneksi hyvin vähän aikaa. Good enough toimii … Continue reading Kaisa (Suomeksi/In Finnish)

I started planning my first tattoo when I still was underage. I invented the idea of my first tattoo when I was lying on my bed and listening to one of my favorite bands, Simple Plan. Although these words don’t even appear in the lyrics of the song I was listening to, somehow they just … Continue reading Kaisa

I used to be a punk kid when I was young, with a mohawk and all. I guess my first tattoos were some sort of rebellion, too. When I was young, my father always said to me I shouldn’t get any tattoos. He had made tattoos with his friends in his younger years while being … Continue reading Pete
