For no.12 in our 5×5 series I’ve chosen Hans Heggum. Working out of Oslos’ Old Blue Arms Tattoo, Hans does really great traditional pieces taking reference from the classics and is someone who’s work you should keep an eye on.
You should also check out the previous 5x5s with Scott Move, Luxiano Street-Classic, Eterno8, Joe Ellis, Alex Boyko, Acetates, Cheyenne Sawyer, Ryan Shaffer, Joe Chatt, Clare Frances and Kelly Smith.
