Amsterdam Tattoo Museum SOS

November 27th, 2012 | Posted by admin in Events | Friends | Tattoo - (Comments Off)

The past week we all started seeing a SOS signal  from our family at the Amsterdam Tattoo Museum all over the main social media sites; Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook wondering how we can help.  For those of you that are not familiar with the Amsterdam Tattoo Museum, it is the first museum that is totally dedicated to tattooing. It shows the world’s largest Tattoo collection, collected by Henk ‘Hanky Panky’ Schiffmacher.   I was fortunate enough to be there for the grand opening last year in November, I was blown away when I arrived and at that moment I walked in the museum I felt it’s relevance for us proud tattooers, collectors, and tattoo culture novices alike.   They have had some issues keeping it open during its first year here do to some tricky partnership arrangements and financial burdens.  At this moment the museum is in fear of being shout down as it has been forcefully closed.  Please do anything you can to help, even if that just spreading the word.  “it is our future, and our future is not worth anything without our past” -Hank S

I spent quite a few days surfing with Donald, mostly just down the road from his shop on Oceanside Blvd.  He was a Master surfboard shaper/designer and will be missed.   RIP DT                 Hawaiian Pro Designs
