Who are you people?

We are (from left to right) Amalie, Uncle Allan, Lucifer, Electric Pick and Eckel

What are your opening hours?
We are open by appointment only, but we are usually at the shop from 1 pm and we close when we're done working.
We are closed on weekends.

How do I book an appointment?
If you're in Denmark, the best way is to call/email and make an appointment to come by the shop and talk to us in person.

If you can't come by, write to and please include this information in your mail:
Your full name
Phone number

We sometimes take booking breaks, so check our myspace, or the panel on the right of this blog, to see if we're currently taking new clients.

Do you take a deposit?
Yes, we take deposit for booking, they vary in price, depending on the project, so just ask.
If you're not from Denmark, you can pay the deposit via paypal.

If I want to cancel my appointment will I get my deposit back?
No. The deposit 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 two 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 do i book an appointment at a convention?
We'll let you know when we start booking for conventions, it'll be on the myspace calendar.
We can't guarantee you an appointment though.

Allan doesn't do hands, necks, ribs, stomachs, or insides of upper arms at conventions, so think practical spots, please.
He also doesn't start bigger pieces, for those you have to come to Denmark.

Electric Pick doesn't do conventions at all, so try and catch him at a guest spot instead.

Do you ever have guest artists at your shop?
Yes, but not very often.
We'll do a post here whenever we have confirmed guests.

Can anyone come work there?
No, at the moment we only invite people we know.

I noticed that you have a dog at the shop and I'm allergic to dogs, does he have to be there?
He won't actually be in the room with you, but if you're still worried he might affect you, just let us know and he'll take the day off.

How old do I have to be to get tattooed in Denmark?
18 and there are absolutely no exceptions to that rule, so please don't even ask.

Are there any tattoos you won't do?
Obviously we won't do non-custom tattoos.
You can bring your own drawings or reference if you want, but the end result will be completely different.

Also, it's against danish law to tattoo on the neck, face and hands, so we don't do those either.

We reserve the right to say no to any projects or clients, for any reason.

And Allan will absolutely not do clown tattoos, evil or friendly!

Can you make me a drawing, so I can give it to my local tattoo artist and get him to tattoo it on me?
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 for you.

I really wanna be a tattoo artist, can I apprentice at your shop?
No, sorry, we are not really looking for apprentices. Ever.

We're also not the Tattoo Wikipedia, so any comments or mails about who uses what ink, machines etc. probably won't be answered.
Come get a tattoo and maybe you'll learn something that way.

If I like one of the tattoos you did, can I get exactly the same?
We never do the same tattoo twice. And wouldn't you rather have your very own design anyway?

Can I bring my own drawing and get you to do that?
You can bring your drawings for inspiration, but we only do custom work.
That means we only tattoo stuff that we've drawn ourselves.

If I come to Denmark to get tattooed by you, can you help me find a place to stay?
You bet!
Here are some cheap places near the shop:
Hotel Nora (hotel, close to the shop)
CabInnScandinavia (hostel)
Sleep-Inn Heaven (hostel)
City Public Hostel (hostel)
Hotel Jørgensen (cheap hotel)
If you're looking for other options, check

How do I get from the airport to your shop?
Take the train or metro from inside the terminal and get off at Nørreport Station.
It takes approximately 15 minutes and cost way less than a cab.
From there it's just a 10 minute walk, or a short bus ride with bus number 5A.

Do you take credit cards?


How long have you guys been tattooing?
Approximately 10 years

How long is the waitinglist?
That depends on who you want to get tattooed by, what kind of tattoo you want to get and what our travel plans look like and...
Fuck it, it's long.

Is there a cancellation list?
No, the date we give you is pretty much the date you should expect to get tattooed.

When is Uncle Allan/Electric Pick/Eckel coming to my city/country and when can i find you at the shop?

Check the calendar on our myspace profile and for our immediate whereabouts, this regularly updated blog.


  1. "And Allan will absolutely not do clown tattoos, evil or friendly!"

    Seriously?! I never knew!

  2. Seriously.

    He's terrified of clowns, even the happy ones!

    He said no to doing one in Long Beach last year and the dude thought he was kidding, it was hilarious!
