We teamed up with Michal, the awesome dude behind Optic Camouflage and Flshvn - and wanted to do a photosession with our cool customers. Here’s what came out of it - we might do some more in the future, let us know if you are interested in showcasing the work of Mike and spread the word and good vibes
We all asked them the same questions, read their inkputs below.
Stefan - Film maker
He is what we called a ‘virgin-skin’ :) and it was most important for him to feel the connection and trust with his artist.
What is a tattoo for you:
Its ink in skin - personal expression - in the beginning it was a very personal way to express myself, now its starting to be what it is; stories formatted on your skin by ink.
What is your passion:
Mostly passionated about telling authentic stories, which I also practise daily during my work.
Why Mike/Handshake Studio:
He really took good care of me regarding my first tattoo, which meant a lot since it was a giant step to take, when I was not even sure I wanted tattoos. I really did thorough research in the market about styles and artists - Mike was really patient at that time and is really a loving human being.
