Köln & Paris: Herbert Hoffmann


Born in Pommern, Germany, orphaned early and then called to the Russian Front to fight for the armies of the Third Reich (from which he was released in 1949), Herbert Hoffmann (1919-2010) is a kind of miracle man. He expressed his humanist joy through the media of skin and film. In his Hamburg studio, which he opened in 1961, Hoffmann created a “graffiti” movement with tattoos, a precursor to the artistic boom in the 1970s. Visiting his official site, you will notice, as I did, that this humble German artist was prophetic. Renowned in the world of both tattoo and photography, all of his work is imbued with a humanist, uninhibited and gentle candor.
