“In my book Symmetries my goal is to display a series of drawings and etchings that give a significant insight into the artwork I was working on in Vienna. However, the main part of the book is dedicated to my tattoo art.

We wanted to present the tattoos like in a gallery, drawing a connection between tattooing and fine art. As a result, the book’s minimalist design gives the reader space to experience my artwork in a way it has not been displayed before. Over the last six months my wonderful team and I have been collecting, screening and curating my artistic material from the past few years. Our plan was to document my development as a tattoo artist in an elaborately designed art book that expresses my passion for tattooing along with my large-scale images of my work, my picture language, which I was able to express in your tattoos.

Now we need your help, to bring SYMMETRIES to life. I am offering copies of the book, stickers, and even some super limited-edition prints in exchange for your support, and I will be adding more exclusive perks over the next few weeks.

Every donation, every pre-order of the book and even every share helps us to spread the word about the project and to cover the costs of printing.”
