FALK MALISCH - ABOUT THE ONE, WHO SET FORTH TO LEARN HOW TO TATTOO
Falk is the best example to prove that persistence will pay off. If you are apprenticed by Matthias Böttcher and Sebastian Domaschke you know you are one lucky duck. The trained industrial mechanic now roams the globe and amazes with not only his tattooing but also with his tattoo flashes.
SANDOR JORDAN - PAINTING IS ALWAYS A LEARNING PROCESS
Subconsciously, I always found the Asian style to be the most aesthetic. Thinking back it’s probably because my grandma always had a lot of Asian stuff at home. Pictures, cork carvings, a lot of bamboo from China which she got from her neighbour, who was a sailor.
MARVIN DIEKMÄNNKEN AND THE NEW GENERATION
The art of tattooing through the ages certainly spawns, just as everything that changes and grows, several free riders with it. Theoretically, everyone can call themselves a tattoo artist, but the question is who feels called upon and who implements it right. One of them is definitely Marvin, whose demands on technique, craftsmanship and himself as an artist are very high-minded. Whether it’s on ink or paper or when occasionally playing the guitar in his band Organa. He works at the Halunken in Bielefeld alongside Edgar, Phillip, Jusse and Benni.
PATRYK HILTON - THE TRADITIONAL MINIMALIST
Patryk Hilton from the Pantera Tattoo studio in Bydgoszcz achieved something which is denied to many other tattoo artists: during his career, he developed a distinctive and unique style with a high recognition value. He consistently merges traditional working methods and designs together with minimalist artworks, managing to harmonise two tattoo styles, which usually stand out through their differences. However, the blend of both styles is harmonious, no matter if it’s black and white or colourful, bold lines or minimalistic.
SASCHA FRIEDERICH - KEEP IT TRADITIONAL!
Sascha Friedrich is what one may call “old school” in many aspects. He thinks of himself as down to earth and introverted. His style is classic and inspired by old designs by big names such as Warlich, Grimm, Waters, Ed Hardy and many more. Four years ago Sascha settled at Green Leaf Tattoo, his studio in Dinklage, to provide humankind with rock-solid, traditional tattoos.
SEBASTIAN DOMASCHKE - THE SEVEN PLANETS
His work speaks its own language and connoisseurs will identify his work as a “Domaschke” immediately, even though his style has undergone some change throughout the last few years. Progression pushes him as an artist, as proven again by his new flash set The Seven Planets.
