Rene was born in Heidleberg in 1984 and describes Fatty as ‘a true gentleman, who has worked as a roadie for decades for some of the most successful artists in the world. A gentle caring debauched beast whose life is coloured with tales that excite, amaze, scare and surprise’. Fatty’s tattoo was started by someone and finished by someone else. When I know who, I’ll tell
Despite the demeanor of a drummer with 8 hours off in a liberal foreign town, Jan Schjetne is one industrious dude. Co-founder of Phiary, Porn&Beauty blogger, & committed lover are just a few of the roles that keep this man out of more trouble than he already inherits.
‘I’m not afraid to admit that the base for this tattoo is quite influenced by a tattoo design I saw in a book about Russian prison tattoos. A bit of a risky admission, as my tattoo artist friend made sure to inform me that undeserved Russian prison tattoos can result in a death sentence in certain environments. But I changed it around and made it my own. The “Death Boogie” is a philosophy I’ve lived by for years. Without getting too much into it I’ll say that it reminds me that life is fragile and I should make the best of it while I can’.
Tattoo artist: Bjørn Egil Ragnarsen, Lillehammer, Norway

His friend Danielle will be back here by herself very soon..
