What’s your address?
2nd Hof, Remise links
What the hell is a hof and why is it the second?!
That’s just German for backyard. When you get to Hauptstrasse number 155, You will ring the buzzer next to the big gate. When the gate opens just walk ALL the way through to the second backyard. DO NOT go to the tattoo shop directly on the street, that’s NOT us! You have to use the buzzer at the gate to get to us! If you have problems finding, call or text the phone number provided in every email you got from me.
What are your opening hours?
We are open by appointment only, so there are no opening hours. Always email me in advance to set up an appointment, even if it’s just a visit to check out the studio.
How do I book an appointment?
Please send me an email! Or get signed up to my mailing list!
So, i have an appointment now… anything i should know about how to prepare for it, or what to bring while i’m there?
I will email you information about rates and how to find the studio when you are booked in.
If I want to cancel my appointment will I get my deposit back?
No. If you have paid a deposit, it will be taken from the last session of your tattoo, but if you decide not to get tattooed for whatever reason, it will not be refunded. If you need to move an appointment, you need to do so seven days before the appointment, or you will lose the deposit, and a new one will have to be paid to make a new appointment.
How old do I have to be to get tattooed at your studio?
18 and there are absolutely no exceptions to that rule, so please don’t even ask. If you look under the age of, say, 20, we will need to see ID.
Can i get tattooed if i’m pregnant?
What about if i’m breastfeeding?
That one we’ll leave up to you, as there are many opinions about the subject, and we’re no experts. Try to read up on it and educate yourself before making a decision.
Can you make me a sketch, so I can give it to my local tattoo artist and get him to tattoo it on me? I can’t come to Berlin for whatever reason, ever, but i love your tattoos!
Absolutely not. If you can’t/won’t come here to get tattooed, you should find a good artist in your area whose style you really like, and have them draw something nice for you, in their style, or get flash, whatever floats your boat, but to get an original Jakub design, you gotta come to Berlin.
If I like one of the tattoos you did, can I get exactly the same?
No, if the tattoo is custom, we won’t do it twice. The only exception is when the design is from a flash sheet.
Can i bring my friend/boyfriend/girlfriend/mom when i get tattooed?
Yes, you can bring a friend (one!) and while that friend is welcome stay at the shop and wait for you while you get tattooed, they will have to do so in our waiting room. No friends or spouses are allowed in the tattoo room.
CORONA UPDATE: currently due to the Covid restrictions there is no company allowed, sorry!
Do not bring anyone for your consultation, if you have a consultation booked, that is. An opinionated girlfriend or boyfriend who thinks they knows what’s best for you, might not be around as long as your tattoo, so let’s try to keep this all about what you want.
How long is the waiting list?
I book in quarters Q1, Q2, Q3, Q4 so 3 months at a time, if they’re full then you have to wait until I start booking again, usually 3 months before the next quarter. To get all of the updates join my mailing list!
Is there a cancellation list?
Yes, join my mailing list to get notified when a cancelation pops up, sometimes theyre very short notice, sometimes not.
