Thank you Dirk-Boris Rödel and TattooLife for your interest and support of my research and writing through the years. I deeply miss TätowierMagazin (they published my 1st magazine article in 1999) and D-B’s editorial prowess at the helm, but happy we continue to share the same birthday! Enjoy this feature article about my research over the past two decades. Dankeschön Dirk-Boris!!
