Volko Merschky and Simone Pfaff are two very innovative tattoo artists from Germany, creators of a new tattoo design and trademark called Trash Polka. Trash Polka is a mixture of realistic elements combined with abstract or sometimes, graphic parts. Volko and Simone say that they are at their best when they work together, getting inspiration from each other and discussing their ideas. “It is bad for the soul to work on the same designs for years and never create something new,” they say. That is why they never do anything twice and every tattoo is unique and exclusive. That could be coming from the author’s approach towards tattoos, adding more depth to their art, rather than just ink on skin. Merschky and Pfaff’s work is steadily becoming more and more recognized around the globe. They are an inspiration for art to a growing crowd of tattoo artists.
