My Road Is Filled With Ink

At the tattoo conventions in Warsaw (Poland), Marseille (France), Milano (Italy), Linas (France) and Bangkok (Thailand), I was captured by some friends and fellow tattoo photographers.

Warning: This is a total ego-tripping post: photos of me at tattoo conventions, plus a few from couchsurfing parties. If you ever wondered: Life as a tattoo photographer is filled with ink.

This isn’t the first post from this event, MBK Tattoo Contest Vol 10, that took place in Bangkok in November 2015. I’ve already posted some photos here in the blog, but now I’ve uploaded them all to a gallery on Flickr.

Some portraits from Bangkok

Yesterday I came home from a week-long stay in Bangkok, where I met a lot of wonderful, talented, beautiful, sexy, creative, amazing, friendly and inspiring people. These are just a few of the photos of the amazing people and scenes that I captured there.

During one week in Bangkok, I spent most of my time in tattoo shops and hanging around with other tattoo interested people. It all culminated in the MBK Tattoo Convention 2015 on my last day, where most of these photos were taken. For me, as a person who’s probably more than average interested in tattoos, being at a tattoo convention makes you feel at home: You meet lots of people who all share the same passion and love for the same kind of artistic expression. It makes you feel like you’re a part of an international society. I’ll post plenty of photos from this magnificent event later. Because I had a flight, I couldn’t stick around to find out who won in the different classes, but for me it wasn’t important to find out who came out victorious or not – the important part was to be there, feel the vibe and be a part of the event.

The Muay Thai boxing photos were shot at Bankok’s Rajadamnern Stadium (which will also be covered in a separate post) and, since I was already in Bangkok, of course I made sure to arrange a photo session with a local model: Rogue Seraphim and make-up artist Adia Braun (the photo session will also be covered later). I haven’t had the time to go through even a small fraction of my photos yet, but I probably have some interesting street photos to share as well.

I hope you all (my readers) have been having a good time and enjoying life lately and I hope that I get to visit Bangkok again soon! The sooner the better!
