I met Daniel at the Success HQ early September. I requested to shoot him when I first met his booker but he happened to be in Berlin. Luckily though, I dropped by again 2 days afterwards and Daniel was there, freshly arrived from the airport and plans were made for the following day.
After the shoot we had a conversation about tattoos and how people keep asking him “Why did you get so many tattoos” to what he answers “Why don’t you have any?’. I guess tattoos are getting more and more common but few people are tattooed as much as Daniel is. To me the one above his eyebrow says it all: “This is art”, stop questionning it.
