Sir Larry has invented his unique Fake-Tattoo-Performance in winter 2002 and since then he painted probably more than 800 bodies in Theater-plays, at Rock'n'Roll-Shows and Exhibition-Openings. Larry uses a black permanent marker stuck into a conventional Drillmachine. The result is a terrible (scary) noise and well shaked outlines that give the motives the unresistible charme of vintage Jailhouse-Tattoos. Sir Larry, aka Roman Maeder, a professional Pop-Brut-Artist and Activist from Zurich, Switzerland, considers the costumers individual wishes, designs and applies the artwork in his very own style right on the spot. This process takes him about 5 - 20 minutes. The temporary tattoo stays about 24 - 36 hours, depending on the costumers nature of skin and washing habits.
It's not only thrilling for the current victim, to observe the artists work in progress, but as well for the future costumers waiting to get their swiss-quality Fake-Tattoo!
Sir Larry takes no response for dirty clothes or bed-clothes and denies any responsibility for allergic reactions!
