Amsterdam Tattoo Museum
The connection between tattoo’s and writing for me is all about the sacrifices related to creating something out of nothing and the pain that goes into doing just that. If you are a writer and haven’t experience some pain regarding the process, well, keep going. And, just like a tattoo, yeah it hurts, but when its over, their is this unique and permanent piece of art in the world.
The Amsterdam Tattoo Museum demonstrates the creation of art.
I am super excited to announce they have a new location
OPENING NEW AMSTERDAM TATTOO MUSEUM SHOP:
February 28th, 4pm.
van Woustraat 78, Amsterdam. BE THERE!!
They are still seeking donations, so if you would like to help, please visit here and here for more information.
Check out The Amsterdam Tattoo on Pinterest and see why this is a special collection and a special place.
Calling all Tattoo’ed Writers
I created Tattoo Tuesday to feature writers who share my love of tattoo’s and want to show off their ink. If you have a tattoo story to share along with some beautiful work and want to be featured, please let me know in the comments. It’s easy, just answer five questions and provide me good photos of your tattoo’s. And, if you have something to promote, this is a good place to do it. Tattoo Tuesday’s are my highest viewed days.
If you have been featured before and have some updated ink, please let me know that, too.

Tattoo Tuesday will be a constant feature on my blog, if only for my own amusement. I welcome anyone with a great tattoo and/or a great tattoo story to share them with the world. My tattoos are inspired by my life and at the same time inspire my life everyday. Maybe yours can do the same for others. Thanks so much A.M. Schultz for creating the Tattoo Tuesday Badge.

Amsterdam Tattoo Museum
Every since I heard about the Amsterdam Tattoo Museum, I have been planning a trip to see it. Sort of like the trip to Mecca for tattoo lovers. A few weeks ago, the Amsterdam Tattoo Museum was shut down and the building owners were preventing the museum owner to operate any long and the collection of tattoo history was being held hostage.
Several events across the world by some of the best tattoo artist in the world were held to raising money to help the museum and protect its collection.
It looks like the campaigned worked and the museum is going to re-open. I wanted to share this because I love the way the tattoo community rallied together to support and save a piece of their culture and history. People coming together to help each other is a beautiful thing.
