Keq Marku, is a tattoo artist working in a bunker close to Koplik, Albania.
As part of the country’s ‘Bunkerisation Project’ between 1967–1986, bunkers were built all over the city, supposedly to protect the people living there. They were mostly used for fear, though, to show the people that there was always an enemy ready to attack, and ultimately they were all abandoned during the end of the Communist rule.
Keq, after living in a few different countries and learning how to tattoo in prison, bought some land that just happened to have a bunker on it. Rather than tearing it down or sold for scrap, Keq created a little tattoo shop inside of it, that he now works in.
