In 2013, he moved to Psyland - his own self-created gallery, studio and living space deep in the countryside of Germany. In this place, he explores tattooing, body modification, art and other rituals to gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of love, life and self expression.

The movie Ink, Blood and Spirit, is available to watch on Vimeo for a small fee - it gives a great introduction to the artist and his unique ways of working.
