“The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.”
-Jacques Yves Cousteau
Ocean is where I belong, it is a bliss to me. Salt waters are calling me back time after time, and all I can do is obey by form of sailing, surfing and open water swimming.
I’m a tattooer from Finland, and have been tattooing professionally since year 2000. I’m a founder of LR Tattoo & Art Alliance in Helsinki – a coalition of fine line artists and inspirational persons. I hold a private studio on my home island, Utö. I’ve studied photography and graphic printing, as well as psychology. Arts and human mind, specially subconscious enthralls me.
I’m a mom for two most radiating persons I know. We’ve lived threesome all of our days. Kiddos have travelled with me around the world from New Zealand to Iceland, and have introduced me to the most pure perspective how to explore the world.
My values lies in honesty, loyalty, equality and good energies. I stand for my crew, and I expect it to stand for me. People protect what they love, so for me it is the ocean, my home island, my team and last but not least – my family.
On these pages you may find, how ocean binds all the aspects in my life together; Tattoo culture within sailors is strong, my art is maritime themed, all my sports happens at the sea and I live in the most beautiful island, Utö, in the middle of Baltic Sea. I named the blog after Bill Murray’s – one of my favorite actor – movie. Welcome to follow the adventures, where all our seas are taking me into.
