Cool Hunting Video Presents: Danish Tattooing

Our video exploring the colorful history of tattooing in Copenhagen

by Cool Hunting Video in Culture on 11 April 2011

by Gregory Mitnick

In this video author Jon Nordstrøn brings his book Danish Tattooing to life by visiting Copenhagen's most famous tattoo shops, telling stories along the way about the artists who made the subculture so significant there. From homemade tattoo guns to the influence of psychedelics on more recent styles, Nordstrøn's colorful history is a must for anyone interested in the origins of the artform.

Tattoo fans will also want to know about the book's follow-up, "Nordic Tattooing," which looks at the development of that region's styles through the tattoist's original drawings. Both books are available by contacting Nordstrøn's imprint Nordstroms.
