The possible scandal surrounding the German band Rammstein is making waves. A tattoo artist from Berlin reacts in her own way to the allegations and receives a lot of encouragement for her action.
Berlin – Just a few days ago, it became known that Rammstein singer Till Lindemann is said to have been abusive towards women. The band and lead singer deny the allegations, but a tattoo artist is now offering free cover-ups of Rammstein tattoos – the campaign is quite popular.
Serious allegations against Rammstein singer Till Lindemann
Rammstein singer Lindemann and his entourage are made serious accusations. Young women are said to have been led to a kind of private party after concerts. As stated by the Irishwoman Shelby L., among others, who made her allegations public, the women concerned are said to have been asked to have sex with Lindemann. In addition, there are several women who talk about suddenly feeling dazed at the private party, even though they did not drink much alcohol – they expressed the suspicion that narcotics had been involved.
The allegations have not been proven. Rammstein herself denied the allegations and called in her lawyers before the second concert in Munich. The allegations were "invariably untrue," the law firm said in a press release. At the end of May, the band posted on Twitter that they "can rule out the possibility that what is being claimed happened in our environment."
But the accusations alone made the mood of many people boil up, at the Rammstein concerts in Munich there was a demonstration in front of the stadium. Tickets were also returned in rows. Several tattoo artists made the offer of free cover-ups of Rammstein tattoos public as a result of the allegations.
Tattoo artists offer free cover-ups of Rammstein tattoos
One of them is a tattoo artist in Berlin who created an Instagram story. Underneath, she wrote: "If you have a Rammstein tattoo, I'll tattoo it for you for free or for a donation." The donations received will go to organizations that work against violence against women. A repost of the campaign on Twitter was clicked over 600,000 times after a short time and received almost 12,000 likes. "Best idea" and "love everything about it" were two of the top comments among them.
In another Instagram Story, the tattoo artist addressed the many messages she had received after her offer: "I've gotten hundreds of requests. I didn't expect my post to get so much attention." The tattoo artist does not yet know how to cope with the many requests: "Actually, I'm fully booked all year round. I'm now trying to put cover-ups in between in the evening or on my days off." Therefore, she can only offer "blackwork", i.e. the blackening of the tattoo.
