Tat­toos of dead des­tined for dis­play

China Daily (Canada) - - LIFE -

Tat­tooed skin may one day adorn the walls of art col­lec­tors if Dutch en­tre­pre­neur Peter van der Helm has his way. The tat­too shop owner has set up the Walls and Skin tat­too par­lor in Am­s­ter­dam to pre­serve the tat­toos of the dead. “Ev­ery­one spends their lives in search of im­mor­tal­ity and this is a sim­ple way to get a piece of it,” Van der Helm said. “It’s not a new idea. We just found a way to ac­tu­ally do it.” More than 30 clients have do­nated their skin to the com­pany in a will and each paid a few hun­dred eu­ros.
