The Sea Shepherd Tattoo Studio is open since March 10th 2018 and is officially registered and approved by the Amsterdam Health inspection.
Sea Shepherd Tattoo has been set up by Sea Shepherd Global’s Artistic Director and tattoo artist Geert Vons as a unique way to raise awareness as well as to raise funds for Sea Shepherd’s direct-action campaigns. Over 25 years ago Geert started as a volunteer for Sea Shepherd and worked as a tattoo artist, as well as painter/artist. Now, after having left the tattoo gun for years, he started tattooing again in order to promote Sea Shepherd and the care for the oceans in an artistic way. All proceeds go to Sea Shepherd!
A month after the official opening of the Sea Shepherd Tattoo Studio in Amsterdam, Sea Shepherd Tattoo announced a unique partnership with Tattooland at the Tattoo Expo Bologna (April 6 – 8, 2018) and presented a line of Sea Shepherd branded vegan tattoo ink. The black and grey set of six bottles (lining black, deep black and four grey washes) is available for worldwide shipment to professional artists through Tattooland (www.tattooland.com). Part proceeds go to Sea Shepherd supporting the global campaigns.
