The Family Man

The Family Man

Looks can be deceiving. I've seen this guy a few times lately and figured I had to take his portrait some day. Easy to spot with those tattoos, earrings and piercings, and I figured him to be a tough guy, a biker or something like that. Boy was I wrong. This is Micke. He lives here in Haninge and works at a warehouse in Jordbro. He is in a relationship, and as we were talking his girlfriend called. Together they have eight kids between them! So Micke is a true family man. He used to go on many cruises with Cinderella, a ferry boat that goes between Stockholm and Mariehamn on Åland, known to be a real party boat. But with eight kids those days are long gone. Since I took this photo we have met again, and Micke told me that he used to work at a greenhouse nursery in Tungelsta, and that his dad used to live in a house at Näringsberg, the old estate with a murder story that I told you about earlier this summer.

Yep, first impressions aren't always right are they? He looks like a pretty nice guy actually.

You know Steffe, I think I've already seen this posting on your blog. Are you running out of blog material? I realize that those tats are "interesting", kinda, but do we really need to see them twice?

Steffe said...

No idea what you mean Allison.

He has style, and probably no A4 life!
I think it is great that we don`t all look the same.
