News: SAVE THE AMSTERDAM TATTOO MUSEUM


Official Statement from the Amsterdam Tattoo Museum:

Comrades at arms!

It is been overwhelming, we’re blown away by the enormous support we’ve had the last 24 hours. Never before in my whole history as a tattoo artist I’ve come across such an enormous exposition of positive energy. Reactions worldwide, tweets and retweets, pictures on Instagram, posts on Facebook, etc. It’s a tough fight, but we’re in to win this.

Again today we were denied access to our museum. Locks have been changed, negotiations with the police to get personal matters like tattoo machines were necessary. A tidal wave of local and national press were served all day. Negotiations with landlords, lawyers and businessmen took place. Do not despair my friend. We will fight this with success. Stay tuned!

P.S. Lawsuit is about 1.5 million Euros and has no ground at all. Come see us on December 8th. Help us fight for our art, fight for our history, fight for our future, fight for our museum!

Yours truly, Hanky Panky, Louise, Annemarie & Tessa…

  4. As a, sort of, neighbor (I have a B&B just around the corner ) and regular visitor of the @amstattoomuseum, I want to ask everyone who has been, or still wants to go, to our Tattoomuseum: let yourself be heard and spread the word to keep the ATM open!
