Tattoostudio SW Design

Because of constant increase of prices that I have to pay, I decided to raise my fee after more that 10 years a little bit. One working hour will be 110€ instead of 100€.

This new arrangement is mandatory for all of my clients, even those who already have been given an appointment. If you do not agree with this arrangement, you can cancel your appointment until the 24th of January and you will get back the down payment.


For organizational reasons, the only way to arrange a tattoo appointment will be on a fixed schedule: On each beginning of a calendar quarter you can contact in one of three ways:
visit me in my studio in Worbis or call me. Please understand that at the moment this is the only way since I can not answer all requests. Also, please do not contact me via any other kinds of social media (WhatsApp, Facebook etc).

Current corona regulations in our studio

Customers who have not been vaccinated should bring a negative test that is updated daily. Either as evidence from a test center or you bring a fresh test with you and do it on site so that we can see that it is up to date. Vaccinated customers should bring proof of this with them.

This rule applies to all tattoo and piercing customers.

We didn't come up with the measures, but we have to adhere to the guidelines.

Our Piercer will be in the studio on the following days. The dates in the future may vary, so to make sure, the Piercer will be in the studio: just call us a couple of days before you plan on coming or visit our Facebook-page.

Latest Work



For many years, my studio, 'SW-Design' has been the region's number one choice for tattoos and creative design

Metamurban – a new name, my neologism to name my style, to make it concrete. Metamurban – a combination of 'metamorphosis' and the English word 'urban'.
Metamurban simultaneously stands for the transformation of my creative work deep within and for the urban, cultural manmade structure in which we all dwell. It stands for life, street art, comics, mainstream, progress, but also for the decay that we all are exposed to.

Apprenticeship Vacancy

If you are skilled, creative and want to become a tattoo artist, show up in my studio and bring a portfolio of your best works.
Furthermore, perseverance and ambition are crucial. Half of my life I concentrated on making tattoos and even longer on graphics and the art of painting.  With some patience and perseverance, you will benefit from my experiences, get to know nice people and learn from other artists on conventions.
You can application will be for a full-time job.

Tattoo Artists Yearbook 2017-2018


The new Tattoo Artists Yearbook 2017-2018 is available now. You can find all well-known tattoo artists from Germany, Austria and Switzerland - including me! Customers gain a very a good insight into the studios in Germany, some artists like me have a unique style.

Every piece presented on these pages represents my style and the current state of my work. All works emerged free from everything, sometimes even without a preliminary sketch. When working with photo templates, I prefer to make them myself in order to shape my work from the very start. Almost all of my tattos develop in my imagination. In the process, I pay particular attention to image composition, perspective, graphics, light and shadow and of course the colour scheme.
Furthermore, to me, every work has to fit the body part and proportions.

These works are not just copied from reality, in fact, I did intentionally try NOT (!) to painstakingly paint from a template. That is what art students would do in their first semester. Unfortunately even in this magazine, you will find works like these: at first sight, I could find a lot of motives like portraits of celebrities (ever so often from the same motive found on the internet). And these artists call themselves star tattoo artists.
Buy the magazine, browse through the pages, think for yourselves and then - get tattooed!!! One copy can be found in my studio, too.
