From Sailors to Kings

I usually try to avoid re-posting tattoo news or features (unless it’s for a special cause) but I caught this story about Danish tattoo history over on Mel Noir’s Tattoosday UK blog.

It’s a fascinating piece and well worth investing a coffee/tea/warm beverage of your choice into reading, as it contains a great deal of information based on the book Danish Tattooing by Jon Nordstrøm.

Thanks again, Mel!
