In the True Stories series I speak with misfits, cowboys, black sheep, noobs, birds of paradise, misfits and free thinkers. They are often men with one foot within society and one outside of it. They are constantly in a dangerous, but also immensely fascinating balance. This also applies to Dennis Overweg, who balances his life between Fat Dennis and 'normal' Dennis. Dennis Overweg lived his life for twenty-five as a full-time Dikke Dennis. Snorting coke, drinking, fucking whores and tattooing to finance all these not cheap daytime activities. He kicked the habit in 2013, just before his fiftieth birthday. Where Andre Hazes and Herman Brood lost the battle with their addiction at that age, Dennis pulled the brakes just in time. After twenty-five years of full-time use, it was time to recalibrate the balance between 'normal' Dennis and Fat Dennis. Something he seems to have succeeded damn well.
