Michael Bergfalk is a tattoo artist, painter, collector and philosopher. His young artistic ambitions ultimately led to the study and practice of the art known as tattoo.


Bergfalk says the copious images on his own skin also bear testimony to his own examination for the origin of this centuries-old art. He eventually found himself decorating the bodies of the Arizona populace, most recently at Love & Hate Tattoo in Phoenix (pictures of said bodies after the jump).
