Henning’s interest in tattooing started when he was only 13 years old. By the age of 18 he finally began his formal training at a tattooist in Copenhagen’s Red Light District and it became the beginning of a long career.
Later Henning worked with the now legendary Ole Hansen a.o. in Nyhavn – the famous canal and entertainment area in Copenhagen – before he moved to Helsingør/Elsinore in 1983 to establish Royal Tattoo.
Henning has specialised in Japanese and traditional tattoos and he considers tattooing to be a craftsmanship in which the learning process and refinement are great incentives.
During the years Henning and Royal Tattoo have left a mark both in his native Denmark and abroad. The international recognition manifests itself in the more than 50 awards Henning has won since the ’90s – and the three worldwide ”Tattooist of the Year” titles.
