Anders Gran

When asked about his craziness for tattooing, Anders said,

“M super self-taught. It’s a funny story. In my home town, I was probably the first guy to get tattoos. Whenever I got a tattoo I never told anybody, I just rocked up and I had tattoos and people were like, ‘damn I want a tattoo’. But they don’t want… they want just a tiny piece and they don’t want to pay like 100 pounds for it or whatever. So we just started like that. And in the beginning, the stuff that you are making is so horrendously ugly. But that’s how I started. the first tattoo I ever did was a stick and poke on my older brother. On his leg.”

“I have too many, I think. I’ve done so many tattoos at home drunk. Some of them turn out amazing. Some you have to double-check in the morning to see what you did.”
