Minimal Mountain Tattoo

Got my first little ink done yesterday by my homeboy @jesse_schijndel at his shop @kapitaaltattoo. Go check out his work, he creates some unbelievable masterpieces. ▪ This little mountain refers to a crazy hike that me, jesse and our friend @rubenboshart once had somewhere in Austria. As the idiots we are, we came severely underprepared for the weather conditions and the knee high meltwater that came running down the path. We ended up having to climb through an ice cold waterfall in our underwear to keep our clothes dry. We really felt like Bear Grylls there for a moment. Afterward we really had to turn up the pace, mainly to keep ourselves from freezing, but also because we had been moving with a snail pace and it was looking like we weren't gonna make it back before dark. In which case we'd have been fucked. Luckily we found a broad path soon after that could take us back down, and in the end we could all laugh about our own stupidity. On the way back we passed by two memorial signs of people who had died there. Crazy experience. ▪ #mountain #mountaintattoo #tattoo #tattooed #ink #inked #inkedup #outdoor #outdoors #nature #hike #hiking #hikingadventures #waterfall #survival #experience #goodtimes #memories #story #storytime
