FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Who are your artists?
Sea Shepherd Tattoo is an initiative of Geert Vons, artist and Sea Shepherd Artistic Director. Geert used to tattoo the crew on board the ships during several Antarctic campaigns. He also designed the Jolly Roger logo. Sea Shepherd Tattoo aims to host tattoo artists from all over the world, representing a wide variety of styles. Please follow our social media for the latest updates regarding visiting artists.
Do you tattoo all designs?
In order to promote the marine wildlife and the oceans they live in, we prefer to do Sea Shepherd and/or ocean-related designs. Realistic designs, tribal-style, colour, black & grey, all depends on the artist working in our studio at the time. Feel free to share your ideas with us though.
Please read the following guidelines:
Don’t rush yourself when choosing a tattoo design.
Do your research before choosing the final design and ‘your’ tattoo artist. Most artists have their own style or speciality. Keep this in mind when choosing a tattoo.
Send us clear reference material like photo's or drawings of the artwork you would like to get done.
Do the profits go to Sea Shepherd?
Yes, absolutely. Sea Shepherd Tattoo is a creative way to raise funds for Sea Shepherd with all profits from your tattoo going towards our campaigns.
