tattoo escapes has partnered with lighthouse tattoo parlour in Sweden
Located in the Southern half of the beautiful Scandinavian country of Sweden, Lighthouse Tattoo Parlour is home to some of the country’s best realism and portrait tattoo artists such as Mattis Bjuvstam, Mikael Ramgard and Christoffer Lofstrand. Lighthouse also has regular guest spots from some of the world’s best so you’ll be in good company and they will happy to have you!
In the winter months, Borlänge is a great place to try your luck on the slopes if you’ve not mastered them already! Only twenty minutes away from Lighthouse is Romme Alpins so step into some salopettes hit the slopes (or perfect your snowman building skills), beautiful bluebird skies and great snow makes for the perfect excuse. Due to Sweden being minimal light pollution you’ll be able to see the Aurora Borealis, head to Abisko, a small town in northern Sweden, your best chance of seeing the lights will be there, but they’re never guaranteed and remember to wrap up warm, at certain times of the year the temperature can drop down to -20 degrees. Not a fan of the cold? Make a visit in the summer and in your spare time head over to Honsarvsberget which is roughly 15 minutes away from Borlänge and is a convenient spot to do some downhill mountain biking, but go steady, there are people who want to be tattooed by you.
Borlänge is centrally located, so there is no issues if you want to visit the neighbouring cities such as Vasteras, Uppsala and Stockholm for a weekend to see more of the country. Stockholm is around two hours and forty-five minutes away if you choose the most direct route or if you fancy the scenic route it could take you up to four and a half hours through the unbelievably beautiful Swedish countryside. Got time to kill? Take the long route, it won’t disappoint. You’ll also come across some beautiful beaches if you head south. Sweden is incredible. Don’t miss out on a chance to spend time out there.
