Finding your pathway in the winding roads of life is not often an easy task, it takes vision and determination to achieve your goals, and to see where you can make your impact on the world. Mads Kristensen was born in Viborg Denmark, in 1981 and despite a turbulent childhood and upbringing was able to forge his path to success, although the journey to achieve this followed a rocky and turbulent road.

After struggling to stay in school, and after getting kicked out of 11 schools, by the age of 23, Mads Kristensen started riding motorcycles with the Hell’s Angels in Denmark. “Angels in Aarhus, Denmark , always loved the ‘free life’ and riding a motorcycle, so this was my first life adventure,” Mads reminisces. Riding motorcycles gave Mads a sense of freedom, and he was able to see the roads winding in his favor, as he started to realize he had full control over his own destiny.

Seeing an opportunity to work with his large network of tattoo lovers, Mads decided to leave the Angels in 2011, in pursuit of creating his own business and becoming an entrepreneur. He had lived the lifestyle to know how to serve his clients best, and quickly rose to mass appeal as his tattoo studio became a massive success. Since then, Mads has grown his tattoo business to become the largest parlor chain in the world and is currently operating out of Denmark, Sweden , Germany, and Spain.
