Not necessarily wanting to dig through photo albums and storage bins I was lucky to have a lower resolution of Hans of Denmark’s pubic tattoo after the color had been finished. This scan originally appeared on the spcOnline site in 1996 and was captured at a lowly 72dpi before being compressed as a .jpg. One of these days I’ll dig out the original and get a better resolution file out of it. The large rings are through his apadravya piercing.
The tattoo was applied by Mr. Sebastian and the photo dates to approximately 1982.
Like a lot of Europeans of his generation, Hans lived through the bombings and air raids of WW2; the following is from the Body Art #7 (which also features Jack Yount) interview between Hans and photographer Chris Wroblewski:
Chris Wroblewski: What was it like living in a city under siege?
Hans: It was an adventure I remember one house I lived in in the attic state of famous Baron ass who wouldn’t talk to anyone below the rank of Dr. fortunately we got along rather well and we’d often go down into the air raid shelters together. she wore beautiful costumes an amazing hats. I always carried an umbrella so that when we when the Bombs shook the street no dust would settle on her immaculate appearance. 1
