Gunnar V is a tattoo artist working in Oslo, Norway. Gunnar is from Iceland but moved to Norway in 2014.
“I got into tattooing while living in the U.S. in 2008. I was studying Audio Engineering. Music has been my passion for a long time but fate intervened. I decided to get a sleeve done at this tattoo shop in Orlando where I lived. I brought some drawings with me and met with my artist, Ant Iannucci, who really liked my drawings and suggested that I should try tattooing. I am forever grateful to him for that.
I finished my degree and moved back to Iceland and started to work in a recording studio. That was my dream, I really loved the job. But I was tattooing friends in the evenings and that quickly grew into something bigger. In 2011 I had to make a decision. To stop tattooing and focusing on sound or give tattooing my all. I chose the latter.”
