Kurt Fagerland, who is always a FYT favorite, was featured on CNN. The article, which you can here, even mentions a few pieces of Kurt’s we’ve featured recently.
“When you’re walking down the street and somebody looks at you, I want them to think it’s a beautiful and interesting addition to your body. I’m not completely against doing something that’s meaningful, but my main concern is what the tattoo looks like.”
With his colorful arms and a rose creeping up the side of his neck, he looks the part. Fagerland is most content when someone gives him artistic license. It starts with a conversation that leads to sketches or drawings, which often take hours to complete, before the client sits for a session or two.
He recently completed a “vegetable sleeve” on the arm of a yoga instructor who told him which vegetables she liked. She left the shop with her arm covered in radishes, heirloom corn, eggplant and artichoke.
Thanks to Tom, whose Johnny Cash tattoo was featured, for bringing this to my attention.
