40 years of tattoo art by Henk Schiffmacher
Henk Schiffmacher has reached his 40 year anniversary and we want to celebrate this impressive milestone with him! The world renowned tattoo artist opened his first tattoo shop in 1979 and the rest is history. In 2017 Schiffmacher was even honoured with the title Officer of the Order of Orange-Nassau. The Royal Dutch Mint and Schiffmacher have joined forces in a unique collaboration, where Schiffmacher designed the medal as well as the design on the coincard. Now you can own a real Schiffmacher without having to get a tattoo. This medal in coincard is a true eyecatcher and a must have for every artistic collector.
Henk Schiffmacher’s portrait has been immortalized on the medal through the use of special 3D and modelling techniques. In addition to the Mint Master’s privy mark, Schiffmacher’s own ‘skull’ mark can be seen as well. Also featured are the words “HENK SCHIFFM∀CHER”.
The reverse features a woman holding onto a cross, while waves crash below her. This image is part of a series of Schiffmacher designed artworks known as ‘Rock of Ages’. It’s a unique design, upon which modeler Juan Sanchez-Castano added depth and relief. “IN GOD WE TRUST, EVERYBODY ELSE PAYS CASH” is featured on the reverse, the same sentence that can be found above his tattoo shop window.
From art to coin
