Fist of Needles | Our Team - Fist of Needles

Our Team




Robin was born and raised in Vasa Finland. As a young child he always had a passion for metal music & art. He first started off in the piercing trade but after a few years he knew he wanted to do more, he wanted to become a tattoo artist. So to gain his knowledge and educational training he left his home, family & friends to pursue his dream. In 2009 he attended a tattoo school in Canada. During this time he completed the training top of his class and was offered a position as a fulltime tattoo artist along side responsibilities of shop manager and piercer. After fulfilling 4 years of work, Robin decided it was time to move back home and open his own studio. On Sept 13, 2013 Fist of Needles Tattoo & Piercing was born. Robin is now an award winning and world travelling tattoo artist with a love for Dark Surrealism and Bio Organica fueled by Blackened Metal and Twisted Visions! He is always looking for clients that want evil sh*t!
