Update: tattoo shops remain closed in December.

Since November 2nd tattoo stores in Hamburg must be closed again, probably until the end of the month. If the closure of the stores is extended, I will announce this here and on Instagram.
For now, all tattoo appointments for December will remain. For all those who had an appointment in November, I will contact you by e-mail.

Until then, take care of yourself.


Open for Business

Since May 13, 2020 tattooers in Hamburg are allowed to tattoo again. If you had an appointment with me that had to be cancelled due to the corona restrictions I will contact you to reschedule. If you would like to schedule a consultation, please contact me via e-mail.

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

Risk group
If you belong to the so-called risk group, you should currently not get tattooed, because tattooing weakens the immune system.

Not a risk group
Even if you do not belong to the so-called risk group, you should consider whether you want to weaken your immune system right now.

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


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.
