My tattoo is a long ship on my right upper arm, probably from Sweden, not entirely sure since I didn’t think that was important, but just went for the one I liked the best.

There’s not too much story behind, other than that I like the motif and rock art in general, but I guess that since I am Scandinavian, a boatbuilder and a tall ship sailor, who also happens to have a big interest for history, having a tattoo of a ship in some kind makes sense!

My own story short is that I travel the world with my trade as a shipwright or a sailor and work where I can find work.
