Tattoo artist Henk Schiffmacher andT V-presentor Astrid Joosten both received royal honors today for their special work. Schiffmacher because he has made tattooing into an art form. And Joosten for her work for Oxfam Novib. Both were named as Knights in the Order of Oranje-Nassau.
Whoever wants to receive a royal recognition can only hope that their friends will nominate them, because you may not nominate yourself.
