The Flying Dutchman Tatoo, 2013

Today we had the opportunity to meet Herke, “The flying Duthman Tatoo”, one of the tattoo artists better considered in Europe, due to his seriousness and for being specialized in tattooing Yokai (creatures half-human, half-animal) . For us, that we don´t have any knowledge in this subject, it has been an introduction to this curious world, that more than curious it´s philosophical. Herke explained that a tattoo could change the energy of the person, give it more strength. But he insisted that before doing a tattoo, the person must think that is for life and not to be swayed by fashion. He makes traditional Japanese art with modern nuances, always respecting the “Yokai” rules. He told us that in these types of tattoos, through a conversation with you, translates your ideas into a design that is just for you, because his tattoos are unique, never printed again in another skin.
