Meet Thomas Roisland, principal tuba of the Danish Radio Symphony Orchestra.

He’s from Harstad, Norway, and lives in Malmo, Sweden.

Send us some more orchestra tattoos.


  • Ulla Miilmann says:

    Thomas is the best tuba player and colleague

  • William Safford says:

    If you’re looking for tattooed orchestral players, there is a violinist in the Philadelphia Orchestra who qualifies. I don’t know his name, but I sometimes see the tattoos in hot summer concerts when the orchestra wears short sleeved shirts.

  • Pianofortissimo says:

    That reminds me of a Russian singer who was not alowed to sing In Bayreuth because of some exceptionally weird tattoos.
