Frisian Tribe tattoos and designsThe Frisian Tribe started as a graduation project. The goal with this project is to show people how rich the history of Frisia is and how old the Frisian peoples are by making tattoos and designs based on the earliest period of existence of these peoples.
Within this project I did research about Frisia in the period 500 – 700 after Chr. They did not write in this period so there wasn’t a lot of easy access information. There are however more and more physical discoveries being made on Frisian soil. The artwork made on these objects are the main source of inspiration for the Frisian designs. Objects such as sceattas (form of silver coins) have been found in Scandinavia but also on Frisian grounds around the period of 650-755 AD. Or golden bracteates which were a form of jewelry (5th - 7th century AD.) And bone and antler objects (hairpins, combs, discs etc.) derived from Frisian terp-mounds are discovered with fascinating artwork. The designs can be a mixture of Scandinavian artwork intertwined with subtle hints of Frisian elements, or exclusively Frisian artwork. In both cases the goal of the designs are to represent ancient Frisian ancestory, tattooed on people that want to connect with their roots.
If you’re interested in this and would also like a Frisian design/tattoo or a tattoo with elements of Frisian artwork in it then send me a mail via my contact page, or directly at firstname.lastname@example.org

All the emails that are sent outside of these months will only get a reminder to send their questions again when the agenda is open. This does not apply to people that have ongoing projects or clients that already have an appointment.
After getting a date set we discuss the tattoo design which can either be by email (including pictures for inspiration) or we discuss ideas in person in the shop. One design will be made and sent to you 1 or 2 weeks in advance of the appointment and any adjustments that the client wants will be made on the day of the appointment. The whole booking and designing process are developed in a way which will work most efficient for both the artist and the client. Thank you for understanding!
