Solawende Tattoo

In the summer of 2017 I started doing handpoke tattoos.

Growing up I’ve always been drawing. After years of studying and practising my skills in drawing and arts I became interested in tattoos. Wearing symbolism on skin is pure poetry to me. And such a powerful tool for healing and selfgrowth. Quickly I got lured towards the beautiful craft of handpoke tattooing.
I already had a tattoo on my body by then, which was done by a modern tattoomachine.. But this old craft of handpoking was absolutely fascinating and beautiful to me.

I continued exploring the world of handpoke tattoos and was lucky to receive a few myself. As someone mentioned this might be something I could do, after rawing with pen and ink for years, I carefully thought about it. Such a responsibility is not to be taken lightly. I started learning and interviewing other artists and then, quite some time later, finally began, thanks to a few brave men who encouraged me and were happy to lend me their skin to practise on.

And it was then that I knew this was what I was going to do for the rest of my life.
To draw and empower people, one tattoo at a time.
