FIGHT TO SAVE THE WORLD’S OLDEST TATTOO SHOP

Nyhavn 17 in Copenhagen is the Worlds oldest tattoo studio. This piece of history is to be closed down! The owners of the building have ended the lease as they want to use the premises as a kitchen for their outdoor restaurant. It is utterly disgraceful to destroy this cultural and important place of tattoo history!
The owner of the building also tried to throw out both legendary artist Ole Hansen in the eighties and later on Tattoo Bimbo / Jørgen Thorstein, and now it’s the owner Majbritt Petersens turn to “fight” them.
The case is going to court on the 14th September. Please help support the fight by signing this petition which is gonna be used in court as defend of our trade and history to join here. Thanks! Frank Rosenkilde and Majbritt Petersen.

What to expect when dating a tattooed woman?

Oh America, your racist, sexist, closed-minded past full of hate and murder makes me sick sometimes.  I’m not sure of this is real or not,  but I honestly wouldn’t put it past The United States Department Of War Information to put out some ridiculous propaganda like this.  I’m so glad there is a generation of wonderful tattooed women blatantly refuting every point made on this page.  Good job ladies.
