Amy Pokes x Anna + Nina

We are proud to announce that on the 25th, 26th and 27th of October, you will be able to get tattooed at our Herengracht shop by the talented Amy Pokes!

Amy is a well-known tattoo artist in Amsterdam, most known for her dainty feminine design and her hand poke technique. Her name already tells it a bit but Amy uses the hand poke technique for her tattoos. The tattoo process is the same as using a tattoo machine, but the needle is hand-powered instead of electric.  

Especially for us, Amy made a selection of flash tattoos each with a unique design and a specific size. The costs per tattoo are depending on which flash you choose. It is not possible to send in your own design, you can only choose from the flash designs Amy designed for us.

For your appointment, we ask you to pay a deposit. We do this to ensure that you are committed to your appointment and compensate Amy Pokes for when there is a last-minute cancellation. 

The deposit is a part of the price of the tattoo, this amount will be deducted from the total price in the store. 

Healing process & aftercare

Healing process:

The hand poke technique makes the wound less intense and therefore the healing process is shorter. You will notice that there are not really any scabs on the tattoo, but this does not make it any less important to apply bepanthen to your tattoo!

After a week you can actually do everything as normal again.


Amy works with a second skin, this is a plaster that she will put on your tattoo after she is done tattooing. You need to keep the second skin on for 2/3 days (It is also possible to shower with the second skin). This will protect your tattoo from any dirt, water etc.

After 2 to 3 days you will take off the second skin (preferably under water). After that, you should rub your tattoo with a thin layer of bepanthen baby or tattoo creme 1/2 times a day for at least a week.

Please note: In the first week of getting your tattoo, we recommend not going to sun beds, sauna, hot yoga, or swimming.

Can I bring someone?

Yes, you are allowed to bring 1 person.

Please note: It is not possible for your +1 to get tattooed during your appointment.
