Amsterdam Tattoo Museum
If there's anyone more famous in the universe of tattooing than Kat von D, it's Henk Schiffmacher, the Amsterdam tattoo artist who inked the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Pearl Jam, Herman Brood, Anouk, Robbie Williams and Kurt Cobain.
In the beginning of November Schiffmacher opened his own Amsterdam Tattoo Museum. Tribal tradition, sailor's souvenir, individualist's expression, rock 'n' roll accessory, fashion item: the tattoo is all that and more. But, most importantly, it's an art form. And where better to honour this with its own museum than in Amsterdam?
So go and take a look.
Amsterdam ranked 8th city in Europe on shopping index.
According to the Globe Shopper City Index by the Economist easygoing Amsterdam is one of Europe's most-visited cities. The city boasts UNESCO sites, Golden Age art, scenic canals and interesting cafés. Advantages: The city ranks in the top 5 for shopping prices and ranks 8th in the index overall. Challenges: Dining, hotels and public transport rank in the bottom 10 for cost-effective pricing.
We can’t solve the low ranking on dining, hotels and public transport all by ourselves but we can set an example for the rest of Amsterdam. B&B La Festa offers rooms that are cheaper than most hotels but offer all the amenities you would expect of a four-star hotel. Also our Italian restaurant La Festa offers fine fresh dishes for reasonable prices.
