Second episode in the “Symbolic Ink” series. In this episode Jostein “Trollmannen” Austvik gets some familiar trolls on his arm.

A welcome return to the nice and friendly tattoo-shop “Symbolic Ink” in Oslo. In this video reportage we follow Trollmannen as he gets his very first tattoo, gives a few tips on beer types, and Bjørn and Sally has a nice surprise in store for the unsuspecting trolls. The tattoo is once again based on the drawings of Jonas Darnell and tattooed by Bjørn. Bjørn also gets to show his hidden talent as an awesome board game maker as he introduce the infamous “Drinking game from hell!”
As always it’s a lot of fun to hang out at Symbolic Ink, it has a great atmosphere and nice people (not to mention very talented). If you are in Oslo and you want to get a tattoo this is definitely a place to go. Check out http://www.symbolicink.no for more info.
-Also I got to use the word “Flabbergasted” again in the subtitles which always makes me happy.

A video reportage from Mr. Seidel’s trip to the tattoo shop Symbolic Ink in Oslo to get some of our beloved trolls on his arm.

Mr. Seidel had been talking to Bjørn at Symbolic Ink tattoo about taking a TrollfesT-tattoo for a while, so when the day arrived we thought; why not make a TrollfesT TV episode about it? So we did. I tried to loure out of him what kind of death or tragedy the tattoo represented, to get the right “Miami Ink” feeling to the video, but he stood blankly. Apparently it’s possible to have a tattoo without it symbolizing a childhood trauma. How about that. Anyway, the tattoo was based on the album cover for “En Kvest for den Hellige Gral” by Jonas Darnell. A great Swedish cartoonist (Herman the heathen) who we’ve been lucky enough to cooperate with for our last two albums.

It was really nice to hang out at Symbolic Ink for a couple of days, the people who work there (Bjørn Holter, Sally-Ann “Lady luck” Eilertsen, and Eric) are great people, and the atmosphere is very nice and friendly. Not to mention that they are very talented people too. So if you find yourself in Oslo and you want to get a tattoo, this place is highly recommended.
