3 Koblenz! You are so wonderful!?
True! Especially the old town. Small town but so much to see.
4 What is important to you when it comes to furnishing and decorating your home?
Plants and artwork on the walls (especially traditional tattoo art). Less is more for me.
5 Breakfast is the most important meal of the day?
Not the most important but for me the most delicious one. One day with a lot of bread, the other with chilaquiles.
6 Meat is murder? (Album by The Smiths)
I’d like to drop my trousers to the world I am a man of means, of slender means …
7 Rembrandt van Rijn or Banksy?
Hard decision. Love Banksy for his originality.
8 If anger is red and envy is green, what color symbolizes jealousy?
For me it’s orange. I don’t really like orange the same goes for jealousy.
9 Do you prefer drawing to talking?
10 What are good quote tattoos?
I like funny quotes or words. Something that makes other people laugh.
11 The so-called “Arschgeweih” is making a huge comeback right now?
It’s coming back slowly, but please have it made-to-change for when it’s out of style again.
12 No pain, no gain?
A little pain makes it all the more appreciated.
13 Beauty is only skin deep?
Beauty goes much deeper. A good heart, humor and confidence are just some examples.
14 Be the needle in the haystack, not the haystack?
Be the needle. I feel inspired by humans that follow their instinct and their way, no matter what society has to say.
15 What is your favorite piece of furniture in your home and why?
My pictures on the wall. Especially this acrylic painting by Julia Stein. It’s so beautiful and peaceful. Could stare at it for hours.
16 If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales? (Albert Einstein)
True. Fairy tales encourage creativity and being creative makes someone inventive.
17 What are your favorite and least favorite chores?
Being creative in any kind of way. Whether it’s tattooing or redecorating my home doesn’t matter. I hate to unload the dishwasher.

Yes. Doesn’t matter if it’s the biological or chosen family.
19 Your perfect excuse for not helping a friend move?
Sorry my children have an appointment, are sick or whatever ha-ha.
20 Your goal in life? A house by the lake?
Very close. A house by the lake in Sweden. Quiet, clean air and water together with my family.
