Lejre 2012

Here are some fine photos from this year's week, doing historical tattooing at Lejre:

Årets telt
This year we set up our tattoo workshop in the middle of the market place. That worked fine
and we got a good workspace.
Hyggeligt telt

Karsten Scherner
Soon I was working on Karsten who came all the way from Germany, only to get a new tattoo here in Lejre!

Karsten's own petroglyphs
He has made the design himself, and his other arm was done by me 3-4 years ago
