Together we are strong! Tattoo industry back to work safely and responsibly.






Dear artist,

The extraordinary times that we find ourselves in due to CoViD-19, also has a serious impact on our industry, tattoo artists and piercers. And where up until now there has never been any single point of contact or form of unionization for our industry, we have seen the need to accommodate this.

The NBTK and the Nederlandse Tattoo Bond have joined their efforts. The RIVM has asked us to present a well-substantiated plan so that we can open for our doors in the new society. We have offered up this plan to RIVM, so that we can open up talks. We want this plan to have a solid foundation and ask you to co-sign this petition. Together we are strong! Register as a (certified) shop, tattoo artist, piercer, pmu and laser clinic in this joint effort, so that we can actually represent the entirety of our industry.

Please note! This petition is only useful if signed by professionals, not by customers / consumers. This joint effort between the NBTK and the Dutch Tattoo Association is one that is supported by a large group of suppliers and tattooists. They have joined forces to make this initiative even stronger.

This collaboration will be shaped in democratic and fully transparent manner. Participation is free of obligation and free of charge. For the future, there are of course important and obvious items on the agenda such as the implementation of European guidelines, our VAT rate, insurance, etc.

But now is the time to unite as an industry, cooperate and speak with one voice. Every professional wants to open their doors again in a way that is safe and responsible for both us and our customers. Society's health concerns us all.
