Lejre 2005

We had a fine week in Lejre despite the fact that the weather was against us. It was raining a lot, but we were fine in the tent.

Morten got a bronze age inspired dragon on his arm.

We were visited by Claire Artemyz from Paris, who photographed and video filmed the tattooing process in ultra close ups.
