Tattoo shop owner Peter van der Helm poses in his tattoo studio in Amsterdam
Tattoo shop owner Peter van der Helm poses in his tattoo studio in Amsterdam December 10, 2013. Van der Helm has set up a business to preserve the tattoos of the dead. About 30 clients of the "Walls and Skin" tattoo parlour, which is tucked away in a canal house in the Dutch capital, have donated their skin to the company in a will and each paid a few hundred euros. When they die a Dutch pathologist will remove the tattoo and freeze or package it in formaldehyde, ideally within 48 hours. It will then be sent to a laboratory outside the Netherlands, where a 12-week procedure extracts water and replaces it with silicone, leaving a rubbery substance. Picture taken December 10, 2013.
