Welcome to Sabotage Tattoo, your professional tattoo studio in the heart of Aachen!
It all started in 2014 when we opened our first studio for “Custom Handmade Tattoos”. We then collected many new ideas and experiences all over Europe, including England, France, Ireland, Cyprus and Romania, and created many works of art there. But we were drawn back home and so we reopened a studio in Aachen – Sabotage Tattoo.
In Jakobstraße we have found the right space, which gives our artists the perfect conditions to live out their passion and to realize their work. “Custom Handmade Tattoos” – that’s what our team still stands for. Each tattoo is unique.
The first consultation is thorough and comprehensive. Together with you, we create your dream design, which then gets under your skin. Hygiene is our top priority. Sterile instruments, high-quality work materials and tested colors are a matter of course in our studio. All work surfaces are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected before and after each customer. All materials that touch your skin are used exclusively for you.
So that the work of art still looks good on your skin and maintains its quality after your tattoo appointment, we will be happy to advise you on the healing process of your tattoo by phone or WhatsApp. In addition, we will arrange an appointment with you to check that your new body decoration has healed optimally.
- Studio Manager
Hi, I'm Raphael Studio Manager at Sabotage Tattoo. In 2014 I founded the tattoo studio Sabotage Tattoo with my partner Mihai, because the job and the art of tattooing have inspired me all my life. As a studio manager, I am your first point of contact. I am at your disposal for any questions, requests for advice and appointments. I have an open ear for every concern and always try to ensure that everyone feels comfortable with us.
- Tattoo artist and co-founder
Hey, I'm Mihai, tattoo artist and co-founder of Sabotage Tattoo. I was 16 years old when I discovered my passion for tattoos and tattooed someone for the first time. My career as a professional tattoo artist started in 2009 in my home country Romania. Since then I have been convincing with my exclusive handmade tattoos.
I have been tattooing as a guest tattoo artist in studios across Europe including Great Britain, France, Ireland, Cyprus, Germany and Romania. There I learned from many internationally recognized tattoo artists and thereby perfected my work. I would say there is no style that I do not know, but my greatest passion is black & gray and realism.
- Piercing Artist
I am Elena Piercing Artist at Sabotage Tattoo and have been part of the team since 2020. As Mihai's wife, I got to know the tattoo and piercing scene at an early age, which I quickly enjoyed. So I started working as a piercer in London in 2015. I worked in different studios in Great Britain and as a result I continued to develop. Piercing is my passion and everyone who watches me notices how much I love my job.
This is us!
Our team is characterized by years of experience, creativity and love for our craft.
It is important to our team not just to satisfy every customer, but to inspire them.

We give equal attention to every tattoo and piercing. Since we don’t want to hold you off forever, we try to give you a timely appointment and to keep the waiting time for your tattoo short.

“Art is long, but our life is short” - Hippocrates
Whether with deep personal meaning or out of love for tattoos, tattoos are inextricably linked with the wearer and the wearer. We believe that tattoos should be as unique as whoever wears them.
For this reason it is our passion to design an exclusive handmade work of art for each customer that is tailored to his or her wishes. Our tattoo artist Mihai and our piercer Elena attach great importance to proper hygiene at work. The quality of the tattoos and piercings are very important to the Sabotage tattoo studio. Every single tattoo and piercing is a matter of the heart for us.
