We are very proud to announce that Human Rights Tattoo is going to Hungary to take part in Budapest Museum Night 2018!
Human Rights in Hungary?
Amnesty International Hungary and Amnesty International Nederland joined forces and invited Human Rights Tattoo during Múzeumok Éjszakája (Budapest Museum Night) on the night of June 23.
Human rights defenders in Hungary need our solidarity. They are under great pressure since the Fidesz Party of Prime Minister Orbán is in power. Orbán limits freedom by adapting legislation and creates public fear with large public campaigns. The government needs to see that we will not let them stamp on the people who work for a society based on love, not hate. “I am afraid that my dedication to human rights will one day be used against me and my loved ones.” Júlia Iván, director Amnesty Hungary
23 June 2018, 18.00 – 24.00H
Holló u. 3-9
All are welcome. Please note that the number of tattoos are limited and individuals will receive tattoos on a first come, first serve basis.
We’ll be working with Tyutyu Tattoo and Daniel Rupazow (handpoking only) from Hungary.
At arrival you will receive a registration card with your letter on it. You can’t choose your letter but the font and the position on your body is up to you. You can pick a font type from the Human Rights Tattoo fonts catalogue that will be available on the spot. After your tattoo is done we take a super up-close picture of your tattoo that will be published on our website together with your statement. Please think about your statement (in English) upfront. A good statement is personal and gives an insight in your life and your personal relation to human rights.
