Here’s a little more information about the book I was talking about.
Tattoos are more popular than ever. Therefore many books about the art form and the associated cultures are published. While some focus on the artists, the tattooers from Holland have never been documented together in a bona fide book.
Dutch Tattoo Studios fills that void, by portraying 30 renowned artists and their work. Colorful characters from the older generation, such as Greg Orie, and the ones who followed in their footsteps, for instance Rob Admiraal.
They all share an unrelenting love for their craft, but each of them has
different preferences, in tattooing as well as in life.
The creator of Dutch Tattoo Studios is André van Zomeren. Since 1995 he’s been traveling the globe, from South America to Asia. With 12 years experience as a photographer and even more in getting tattooed, he was well-equipped to take on such a massive project. Dutch Tattoo Studios will be available in quality bookstores from 23-05-2011.

PS: We will probably be selling a couple of copies here at the shop aswell, so if you can’t make it to the Breda Convention, come by and get one at the shop.
So… Where was I?
Oh yeah… the new shop.
If any of you people actually read the stuff I write here and not just look at the pictures, you might have read that there are going to be some changes over here.
We are getting ready to move to a new location. We should be in there by the first of June, that’s over a month already.
Lucky for you guys not that much is going to change, seeing that the new location is on the other side of the road. Worst case scenario: You’ll have to walk an extra 10 meters, wich is good for burning calories by the way.
Anyho… The old location, where we are still located now, will probably host a piercing/body-mod shop, I’ll drop some more details about that as soon as I get them myself.
I’ll try to put some photos of the new establishment on here with further information as we proceed.
Furthermore… Remember the photo shoot for a book about dutch tattooers? It’s being printed as we speak, the first copies will hit the streets in a couple of weeks. More about that as well in the future.
