Missions, Customs & Commissions


It has been my great pleasure to make this poster for the legendary Tattoo Shop in Milano.
The Tattoo Shop opened it's doors in 1985.
Master Daniele Carlotti and I go way back in friendship.
From the times when my existence transpired in the cellar of a biker coffeeshop in the Amsterdam red light district. I was an apprentice there, at a formerly famous tattoo studio.
The boys from Italy used to visit Amsterdam to stock up on fresh Ink and other things typical of that city. We the Dutchies, in turn visited Italy to enjoy it's many beauties and charms.
And so the rivers of Ink merged Internationally.
As you can imagine, much of that ink has flown under the bridges since those faraway days.
We've become expert Sailors and Captains. We've learned all about the Ruin of Man and woman. We've become riders on the storms, surviving many a ship wreck.
We've been counting our blessings, assessing the damage, consulting the stars and tracing our courses. Also we've all lost dear ones to the Art-of-Ruin, some friends who never made it to safe shores, their youth sadly swallowed by early sailors graves.
Yet here we are! Ink, Art, Adventure Ruin and Heart. The mix that makes for these more-than-one-life-time kind of friendships and inspires us to create, be it on canvas, paper, skin or soul. Navigators on the Oceans of Ink, we are walking-talking universal masterpieces.
Life, art, creation and destruction mark our pleasures and our pains, our ruins and our gains.

 The Ruin of Hu-Man and Wo-Man

 The Ruin of Man and Woman
