interview Sander Doolaege

"The details are so well executed that they reflect my story perfectly."

After a difficult period, backpacking adventurer and nature lover Sander Doolaege decided to
from Zeebrugge to have the sleeve he had been thinking about for so long. Through a friend
he ended up at Inksane. "In tattoo artist Al Minz, I found the perfect man for the job. When I
work of his was forwarded to me by Inksane, I was immediately convinced."

"I had been looking for a design for a sleeve for a long time, and for someone who could make it very detailed and
