We are an art gallery, tattoo & piercing atelier based in Berlin


AKA is a collective of tattooers and artists from around the world. The space in Berlin, Neukölln is it’s home. It houses a team of resident tattoo artists and regular guests, as well as a gallery space and piercing studio.


AKA was founded in 2009 as a multi-disciplinary arts space, which encouraged tattooers from different artistic backgrounds to explore and develop their style.

Over the years the studio has hosted some of the strongest names in modern tattooing and collaborated on countless projects and exhibitions as it strives to keep tattooing progressive and open to all.

Today the AKA family, although widespread, remains united by a shared passion and respect for body art that continues to challenge cultural norms. The studio is a queer positive space which is proud to open it’s doors to everyone.
