Jen goes to ICELAND! (3 times, so far)

Lucky for me, as a female Tattoo Artist at Ybor City Tattoo Company, I have had amazing opportunities to travel to a lot of beautiful places in the world.  But Iceland, is my favorite so far!

Iceland was not even on my list of places to go, until an old high school friend ,that also is a tattooer, suggested it.  I met up with his friends from a tattoo shop in Reykjavik, named Reykjavik Ink.  I visited the shop and fell in love with the place!

Iceland  is absolutely gorgeous!!!!  Ocean, mountains, rocks covered in moss, waterfalls, Hot Springs, Geysers, Volcanos, and Glaciers…this place has it all!  The people are very friendly and most of them speak english, which definitely makes life easier, because Icelandic is a difficult language to learn!  Here are some of the tattoos I did while visiting…



Hand Tattoo

This was an add on to an existing tribal tattoo.



Peacock Tattoo

This is on my friend, the beautiful, Anna Magga. Funny story about this…I drew this for someone else, but Anna saw it and carried the tattoo design around with her all day. The original girl had to back out and Anna jumped on it!  I think this tattoo was meant for her.



Owl Tattoo


Butterfly and Flower Tattoo

I had to take these tattoo pictures before I left and this tattoo was still healing, so it doesn’t look as good as it does in person.  But, I couldn’t leave this out of this post!  Here is why…I worked on Andy for 12 hours to get everything done is one tattoo session!  Completely covered from the knee to the ankle, all the way around!



Feather Tattoo

This was a cute feather tattoo on a cute girl…It was her first tattoo!



Anchor Tattoo

This anchor tattoo was for a German sailor.



Cross Tattoo

This cross was challenging because of all the tattoo lettering requested.  It worked out good by using banners and the cross for the date.



Butterfly Tattoo with Skull

This person requested a traditional skull butterfly with darker colors.


Snake Tattoo

This snake head was a tattoo image this man wanted for a long time…Life is short.  You should go for anything to make yourself happy!

That said, I did do something in Iceland that made me very happy!  I got married by a Viking to the best guy ever!


I just booked my next trip to Iceland this September.  The dates will be posted soon!
