Doc Forest; Rest In Peace:

Yesterday the shock of Doc Forest’s death, cut through the tattoo industry. The man was a legend in the industry, not just in Sweden or Scandinavia, but in the world. He touched upon many lives and made many friends throughout his long career. It goes without saying that he will be sorely missed within this industry. Many are mourning his passing and our condolences especially go out to his friends and family.

Ove, as his birth name was. Was one of the true greats, among the old timers. Among the old timers in the tattoo industry, he was a man who could be credited with bringing Japanese style tattooing, to Sweden and even the rest of Scandinavia. He was even the first actual professional tattoo artist in Sweden and the first to open his own studio.

He always wanted to be an artist, he dreamed of it during his time as a sailor. We hope he was happy, because not only did this man become an artist, like he dreamed of. But he became a legend within his field, as he achieved his dreams. He worked hard all of his career, to improve the tattoo industry in Sweden and it surely would not be the same, if he had not been a part of it.

Final Comment:

Doc Forest, there is so much to say, yet we leave people to remember him, the way the would prefer to. He sure left a huge mark on an industry, shaping it and improving it as he worked hard within it. Hopefully those he leaves behind, can be comforted by the fact, that Ove will be remembered as a true legend.
