Go to Helsinki, Finland, to find tattoo artist Antti Kuurne. He is usually working at Tatuata.
The work of Antti Kuurne is mixing tradition and modernity. Using thick linework, he adorns bodies with ornamental and traditional designs. His patterned tattoos are directly inspired by Norse and Mehndi art. To complete a blackwork tattoo - or standing alone - these adornments are keeping traditions alive. The work of Antti Kuurne also pays a tribute to nature and its sacred geometry.
