For issue number 128 of Tattoo Life Magazine we went to Sydney, to visit the team of a popular Australian tattoo studio: the Lighthouse. Due to lack of space, we weren’t able to give each one of the thirteen tattoo artists the space they deserve in the article, so we will introduce them one at a time here on our website!

This is Johann Ingemar’s time (@sign_of_the_wolf).

He is 31 and he is specialized in Western Traditional and Japanese style. He is particulary inspired by tattooing at the turn of the century.

Johann came from a strong background in drawing, art, and graphic design. He started tattooing in 2010 at Rock of Ages in Lennox Head, but has since worked all over the world on the road in Europe, USA and Asia.

He has been working at Lighthouse since 3 years and a half, after guesting there for about 8. He moved to Sydney from Nothern NSW and the Lighthouse was like a natural choice for him.

“I like to work at Lighthouse because I can choose what I like to do, I have to really focus on tattooing in a certain style and I like the wealth of knowledge and support available from a large and solid team of tattooers”.

When we asked him what is his favourite kind of music and how he would describe his daily work, he answers with this three terms: “loud, heavy and fast”.
