Bjoern, southern California
I was out surfing with some friends when they began shouting and waving at me. I didn’t know why – maybe they wanted to go in? Come closer? Then I looked down and saw a great white shark directly beneath my board. From my earliest memories, I’ve had an affinity for sharks. I was fascinated by them and read about them and studied them. This tattoo is a message from me to sharks, that I am their friend and I mean them no harm.
