No customers for new tattoos, so they started painting clogs. The staff of Tattoo Bob in Rotterdam temporarily focused on decorating footwear for doctors and nurses at the ICU.
Clogs instead of customers
Since tattooing is a "contact profession", all tattoo shops are closed until April 28th. So… no customers. The next plan was rolled out. Not tattooing customers, but painting clogs.
Big shoutout to: Tattoo Bob
Internist Rozemarijn van Bruchem-Visser had been playing with the idea of doing ‘something’ with her ‘work clogs’ for some time. She once saw a TV program in which tattoo artists first drew their tattoo on blotting paper before working with needle and ink. Van Bruchem-Visser thought that maybe she would visit a tattoo salon one day. The idea was accelerated by the corona crisis: the doctors and nurses on the icu had to leave their shoes in the hospital to prevent the virus from spreading, for many a reason to buy a new pair of clogs. Van Bruchem-Visser wrote a message to Tattoo Bob (‘the only tattoo shop I know’) and he immediately reacted enthusiastically.
Each pair of clogs is personalized and a one-off.
Each pair of clogs is personalized with a beautiful design and on top of that the clogs have motivating words to encourage them
