Hello everyone,

as of May 22nd, 2021 tattooing is allowed in Hamburg again. Yeah!

Here’s what happens next:

I will contact everyone whose appointments have been cancelled due to the lockdown by e-mail to arrange a new appointment.

For new tattoo projects, feel free to e-mail me at with the usual information (motif, placement, size, color/black).

If you have any suggestions or ideas on how we can make this work in the safest way for all of us, please write to me.

Many greetings and I look forward to seeing you!
Claude

Information and rules of conduct during the Corona time at the tattoo studio

Since tattooing weakens the immune system, consider weakening your immune system right now.

Negative test
At the moment it is required to show an official negative rapid test (max 24h old). Please email the test result to me directly before your appointment or bring a printout.

If you are fully vaccinated, you will not need a test. Please email your vaccination certificate before your appointment or bring it with you.

If you have tested positive for Covid-19 in the last 6 months, you do not need a test either. Please email the positive test result of your infection to me or bring a printout.

Sick? Cancel your appointment!
If you feel uncomfortable or sick please let me know as soon as possible. You will of course get a new appointment. If you show up sick, you will lose your deposit and won’t get tattooed.

Contact with sick people? Cancel your appointment!
Even if you don’t show any symptoms yourself, you can still carry the corona virus and infect others. If you knowingly had contact with a sick person, inform me in advance. Then we can postpone your appointment.

Mouth and nose protection
Before you enter the building, put on surgical- or FFP2-mask and inform yourself in advance about the proper use of such a guard. During the whole time in the studio the mask may not be removed or manipulated in any way.

Disinfect hands
Hand disinfection is available at the entrance area of the tattoo studio. Please use it after entering. Nevertheless, the greeting afterwards is more reserved than you might be used to. Please do not take this personally.

No accompanying persons
Come to your appointment alone, because every additional person represents an unnecessary risk.

Sorry, We’re Closed

Hi everyone,
thank you for dropping by!
Due to the coronavirus the tattoo shop is closed until further notice. Hopefully in the beginning of May I will know more about a possible re-opening date. But chances are that it is going to be a while.
Right now I am working on setting up a web shop, so I can sell some prints and t-shirts for the time being.

So please come back soon and check out what I have to offer.

Take care, stay healthy and #staysafe
Claude


about

I founded Unterstrich Tätowierungen in Hamburg in 2018 after having apprenticed at Mermaids Tattoo Studio in San Francisco for several years. As a queer, trans person it is of great importance to me to create a space with a calm, relaxed working atmosphere, where all clients can feel comfortable.

Influenced by San Franciscos tattoo community I focus on tattooing Botanical Illustration, Neo-Traditional and American Traditional. If you fancy decorative flora and fauna or motifs of queer subcultures then I am the right person for you. I also love woodcut und linocut printing and enjoy translating your ideas into strong linework tattoos. As a trained illustrator I am always curious to hear your ideas and am able to translate (almost) everything into a tattoo.

If you have a question, want to make a consultation appointment or if you want to get tattooed, please write an e-mail.
