From the Amsterdam Tattoo Museum website:
It is been overwhelming, we’re blown away by the enormous support we’ve had the last 24 hours. Never before in my whole history as a tattoo artist I’ve come across such an enormous exposion of positive energy. Reactions worldwide, tweets and retweets, pictures on Instagram, posts on Facebook, etc. It’s a tough fight, but we’re in to win this.
Again today we were denied access to our museum. Locks have been changed, negotiations with the police to get personal matters like tattoo machines were neccesary. A tidal wave of local and national press were served all day. Negotiations with landlords, lawyers and businessmen took place. Do not despair my friends. We will fight this with success. Stay tuned!
P.S. Lawsuit is about 1,5 million of euros and has no ground at all. Come see us December 8th. Help us fight for our art, fight for our history, fight for our future, fight for our museum!
