Volko Merschky and Simone Pfaff work together as tattoo artists, photographers, musicians, painters and more since 22 years. In 1998 they opened the „Buena Vista Tattoo Club“ and founded the „Trash Polka“ tattoo style which still influences and inspires tattoo artists from all over the world.
Today Trash Polka is worldwide acknowledged as an independent style.
The common music project of Volko Merschky and Simone Pfaff “Dobbs Dead“ is morbid country folk (“post mortem folk – for anti heroes“).
Their work as artists is exhibited in various national and international art galleries and museums in Paris, London, Hamburg and other major cities.
