Located in the east of the Netherlands, near the german border, is the private tattoostudio of Bertus Gieskes. Bertus specializes in tailor made blackwork tattooing.


Prizing the values of symmetry and rhythm, Bertus strives to establish a precise relationship between the human body and the tattoos he creates. His one-of-a kind pieces are custom made with intriguing, bold scale combinations of linework and etnic tribal patterns. Minimalism is integral to Bertus’ work, influenced by the Taoist pursuit of balance and simplicity. “My tattoos are about what is seen, But they emerge from the invisible.”


The studio is available by appointment only. Due to the exclusive nature of Bertus his work it can take some time to answer you. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
