The city of ink

IMG_20170420_112529_015

One in three young Stockholmers has a tattoo, making it the most inked city in the world. With the world’s first tattoo studio in an airport, we meet Stockholm’s tattooed tribe.
It’s all thanks to hip Swedish company Salong Betong, which has just opened the world’s first tattoo studio in an airport. Here, travellers can grab a fair-trade Brazilian coffee,and watch people going under the needle. If they’re feeling brave, and they can nab one of the highly sought-after appointments, they can even get inked before take off.
“We are the new generation,” says Daniel “Danne” Beijner, who founded Salong Betong in 2009. “And, the airport is the new harbour.”
Stockholm is home to the world’s most tattooed population outside tribal communities. Along with the tattoos comes an unusually high level of acceptance for the art of ink.
Today, there are dozens of tattoo studios in Stockholm, and everyone – from teenagers to grandmothers – wants to get inked. Swahili Bob’s Tattoo Studio is one who wants to welcome them all.

So forget the Moderna Museet – the most interesting way to see what’s happening in Stockholm’s contemporary art scene this summer is on the streets.
