Tattoo Peter is is know worldwide for it’s famous old school sailor designs. Started in 1955 by Pier de Haan “The guy with one leg” in a small basement. Was a very successful shop with a lot of news coverage in the papers (papers were more famous than tv’s, that’s how old our shop is! Crazy right?) .

The shop was so busy that we needed to move, the shop moved to a building just around the corner. It is till this day on the same location, now owned by Pier de Haan’s son Eddy Wertwijn. Eddy started tattooing in 1980 and still does so in our shop along with 3 other talented artists.

We also have a nice section in our shop dedicated to Pier de Haan featuring original designs, old selfmade wooden tattoo machines and much more! So also check it out if you’re a tattoo lover like us.

We hope to welcome you in our shop and make your ideas come to life as a permanent art piece on your body!

*= Between 19:00 and 22:00 on appointment only.
