25-01-2023 Foundation was founded in the summer of 2022 by me, Myriam.
Still recovering from my own encounter with breast cancer and a double
mastectomy in 2021 I started to feel a little meaningless.
My body needs more time, but my ever spinning mind got bored.

I was reading about a non profit in the United States helping women get
a tattoo after breast cancer and was like, why don’t we have that in Europe?
And BOOM, here it is! is helping women who had breast cancer surgery to get a tattoo.
To feel beautiful, to end this dark chapter of their lives, to regain control over
their body. Single mastectomy, double mastectomy, reconstructed or flat; all

We are building a network with skilled and trusted tattoo artists all over Europe
and we will organize Tittoo-tattoo days every October where women will
receive a tattoo.

Empowering breast cancer warriors through a tattoo.



The norm is not for him.

His name is Sudhir Ramman (Shotbysud) and he's a photographer based in
the Netherlands.

He specializes in raw, edgy photography that captures raw emotion.
His work is about testing the limits, strength, vulnerability, empowerment, and
so much more.

Sudhir will have a stand at Tattoo Expo Maastricht.
Here he will exhibit some of his work, maybe take some pictures and he probably
will bring some
of his t-shirts.
Come and see!

His signature style includes high contrast close up portraits and experimentation
with lighting, movement and expression. Portrait photography is his main passion,
though he loves creating fashion photography, portfolios, couple shoots and lookbooks
as well.

Take a look at his website and Instagram to see how he creates cohesive themes
throughout different shoots and styles.




Best wishes

The year is almost over, so time for a little retrospective.

Unfortunately we have not been able to organize a convention for the last 2 years.
At first we were not allowed to and later it was simply not possible.

Too many restrictions to organize our conventions the way we want to.
But now we're allowed again!

Last September we first had the Amsterdam Tattoo Convention.
A new and cool location, which came with the some challenges, but all in all it was
a successful event.
There were some surprises and imperfections, but we will take
that into next year.
In any case, it was nice to see everyone together again and to see all those tattoo
artists at work.
There were only good people!

Next March we can finally organize our beloved Tattoo Expo Maastricht again.
There we can meet new people and see old familiar faces again, and we are really
looking forward to that!

Registration for Maastricht is still open, so if you are interested, sign

Staal en Inkt will be present again this year to perform piercings at the expo.
And of course we are very happy with this.

In addition to piercing, they also bring their high quality jewelry.
They only pierce with hand polished jewelry made from implantgrade titanium
or solid gold.
This jewelry is made of a controlled and certified material that meets the ASTM
international standards (American society for testing and
materials international)
and have an internal thread (internally threatened)
or are wireless (threadless).

New date!

It’s with great sadness that we have to announce that
Tattoo Expo Maastricht 2022 cannot take place.

All the developments of the past year, due to Covid-19, have made it
impossible for the convention to take place.
We were hopeful, because some time ago it all seemed to be going
in the right direction, until the Omicron variant held the country in
lock down again. The accompanying restrictions, regulations, lock
downs and doubts among the participants simply make it impossible to
organize a convention. Unfortunately.

This means that we will move the convention to March 25 and 26, 2023.
We very much hope that it can continue by then. We will not give up and
will do our utmost to finally be able to get together again next year..
