Birth of tattooing in Denmark | From sailors to kings #Tattoo

From sailors to kings: the birth of tattooing in Denmark:

"To descend those steps is to visit the birthplace of tattooing in Denmark.

“This is where it all started,” said photographer and author Jon Nordstrøm when The Copenhagen Post met him outside of Nyhavn 17, home to Tattoo-Ole, the oldest functioning tattoo shop in the world.

Nordstrøm began researching the history of tattooing in Copenhagen a few years ago, collecting enough photographs, anecdotes and historical artefacts to put together the 300-page photo book ‘Dansk Tatovering/Danish Tattooing’, which he released in 2009."
