Majbritt is the owner of the world’s oldest tattoo shop, Tattoo Ole, located in the heart of Copenhagen, Nyhavn 17. Majbritt is the first Faroese professional tattoo artist and has worked in the industry for over 20 years.

Come and hear Majbritt talk about Tattoo Ole’s story, and about her struggle to preserve this unique cultural heritage. Majbritt will also talk about her own experience of the tattoo culture in the Faroe Islands, and how it has developed. In addition, she will also explain sailor tattoos, what the different patterns mean and how she was already as a child fascinated by the sailors she met with tattoos, and how this, amongst other things, led her to Tattoo Ole.
