Amsterdam Tattoo Museum Winning Battle to Regain Access to Collection and Facility

(Courtesy of The Board of the Foundation Amsterdam Tattoo Museum) Dear Friends, As you all know, the museum was struggling to survive. During the last weeks lots and lots of people from all over the world expressed their support. Many people, shops and companies even showed their strong commitment by giving a financial contribution to push the museum through these difficult times. The response was heartwarming! We incredibly appreciated the many thousands of messages on Instagram, Facebook, etc. At this time, we are proud to inform you that we (partly due to the continuous pressure from the tattoo world) are in process of reaching an agreement with our business partner Partners aan het werk. We expect the contract for a three year partnership to be signed early next week…  Read More »

Jay Brown: Coeur d’Alene’s Blue Rose Tattoo – An Interview with Robert McNeill (Part I)

Robert-McNeill-0

By Jay Brown In Northern Idaho there is the lake town of Coeur d’Alene, actually more of a city than a town. In the sea of tattooing these days, some of the old timers really shine through as great tattooers as well as incredible artists, one of those is Robert McNeill. I recently got a chance to stop in to see him at his studio on 4th Street right in the heart of downtown Coeur d’Alene. Blue Rose Tattoo is a clean, comfortable shop, with lots of incredible artwork adorning the walls, all of which is either Japanese or American Traditional tattoo designs, all painted by Robert. And speaking of painting, Robert is incredible at that, pin-ups I think being one of his strong points, but he can do anything, all in all Robert is one of those artists that can create on skin as well as he can on paper or canvas. So after we were done with the hellos and the pleasantries, we got down to the interview, which wound up being 43 minutes long, so I am gonna edit things, cause I don’t have enough pictures to go with that many pages, and that’s a lot of pages so we’re gonna trim it down a bit, although it was a great interview all the way through, but we’re not writing a book, but I digress… Yes, so the interview. I hope you enjoy… [Editor's Note: Jay's interview, due to its length, will be broken into three weekly installments, ... Read More »

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! How can you help us? - First of all, keep spreading the word! - Make a donation on PayPal, big or small at info@bluebonesociety.com. - Make a tattoo for the museum, donate, take a picture and participate in the 1000 tattoos for the Amsterdam Tattoo Museum competition - Sing a song on YouTube - Make a “Save The ATM” t-shirt - Bake cookies - Throw a party - Become a member of the Blue Bone Society - Put us in your will - Sell your body ...

northwest tattoo museum--0

By Jay Brown  The Northwest Tattoo Museum is a project that was started almost two years ago when in a conversation it was suggested that there needs to be a tattoo museum in the Northwestern US. In answer to this call myself (a longtime tattoo artist of 24 years at the time) and avid hoarder of everything tattoo, and my fiancé Jennifer DeRose, who is an anthropologist/archaeologist decided to take on the challenge. I then dug out my collection of tattoo machines, old flash and other stuff I had piled up over the years while Jennifer started building the database for the museum’s collection…  Read More »

King of Tattooists; The Life and Work of George Burchett Book Review

kot cover lo-res

By Lal Hardy (New Wave Tattoo, London) When I first took a decided interest in tattooing (more years ago than I care to remember) very little information was available on the subject, except in a few sensationalist or oddball newspaper reports or titillating stories in top shelf “mens” magazines. The only two books listed by the local library were Hanns Ebensten’s, Pierced Hearts and True Love and George Burchett’s, Memoirs of a Tattooist, both of which had been either stolen or “not returned!” Fortunately, I managed to procure a copy of Burchett’s book from a second-hand bookstall in a local market and read it with great interest. Since those days over 35 years ago a whole host of books on the subject of tattooing and tattoos have been published, covering absolutely every aspect of the art and trade. But surprisingly, despite being perhaps Britain’s most famous tattooist, no work had been written about the life and times of George Burchett since Memoirs of a Tattooist. That was until NOW, with the release of King of Tattooists; The Life and Work of George Burchett, by Jon Reiter… (www.solidstatebook.com)  Read More »
