  • How are the hygiene rules?
    At OEK FACTORY, we prioritize your safety and satisfaction by adhering to the highest standards in safe work processes, using only the best quality materials and staying up-to-date with the latest regulations to ensure your tattoo is not only beautiful, but also safe and healthy."
  • Does it hurt?
    Yes! But in the best possible way. Your brain releases endorphins when you go through pain and your body loves endorphins, so yes, it hurts, but you’ll kinda like it.
  • How old do i need to be to get tattooed?
    We adhere strictly to German law and only tattoo individuals who are of legal age, 18 years or older. To ensure compliance, we have included a checkbox in our contact form to confirm that you meet this requirement
  • Can i get tattooed on scars?
    While tattoos on scars are possible with the help of our experienced artist, it is important to note that scars must have fully healed without any visible redness before undergoing the process. For further information about your options, please provide us with pictures of the scar and we will schedule an extra consultation with you.
  • How can i get a price quote?
    The best way to get an accurate price range is by booking a (free!) consultation with the artist—if not in person, then through a brief detailed email. In order for us to quote your idea, we need to consider the subject, size, placement on the body, detail, etc. You are also welcome to come into the shop and talk to one of our managers or artists, if they’re available. We’re always more than happy to help get you the information you need.
  • Will my tattoo change if I gain or loose weight?
    Your tattoo will only ever expand or reduce at the same rate as your skin, it will not distort in shape so no worries.
  • How long do I need to wait for doing sport/sauna/swimming?
    To ensure the best possible outcome for your tattoo, we recommend refraining from sports for 14 days and avoiding exposure to saltwater and sunlight for about two weeks. If you plan to swim in chlorinated water, an additional week of patience is required. Remember, taking extra care during the initial phase will benefit the longevity of your tattoo
  • Will my tattoo bleed?
    Yes, when tattooing we do break the skin so you will bleed, but it is minimal and the artist will constantly be wiping it away. If you are worried about fainting from the sight of blood please inform your artist beforehand so that they can help you to feel comfortable during your tattoo.
  • Do you do white tattoos?
    Although we strive to satisfy every customer, we regret to inform you that we do not offer white tattoos. The human skin is not transparent and has its own natural color, which can make white tattoos almost invisible once healed. As a result, we cannot guarantee the quality and satisfaction of white tattoos, and therefore do not offer them in our studio
  • How do I take care of my tattoo?
    To ensure the best possible outcome for your tattoo, we provide all our clients with a detailed handout of aftercare instructions and our own tattoo cream. While it takes around two weeks for the tattoo to heal, it can take several months for the skin to fully regenerate. By following our aftercare instructions and using our tattoo cream, you can ensure that your tattoo will look great for years to come.
  • How can I get a touch up?
    We believe in providing our clients with the best possible tattoo experience, which is why we offer a free touch-up for tattoos done at OEK FACTORY within 6 months of the first appointment. If you feel your tattoo requires a touch-up after the healing phase (6-8 weeks), please feel free to send us a photo of your tattoo at We will be happy to assist you in setting up an appointment for your touch-up."
  • Will my tattoo idea be judged?
    Definitely not! At OEK FACTORY, we value and respect the individuality of each client, and we do not discriminate or judge any ideas for tattoos. Our experienced artists will work with you to create the best design and placement for your idea, while taking your input into account. We believe in open communication and collaboration between our artists and clients to ensure that you are completely satisfied with the design before getting your tattoo
  • How do i prepare for my tattoo?
    We recommend that you eat well before you come in, and remember to stay hydrated. If you start to feel woozy, have a soda. Sugar is your friend in this situation. Walking around Berlin all day in the summer, without drinking any water and then coming to get tattooed on an empty stomach is a sure recipe for passing out. It’s best not to party the night before because alcohol can increase bleeding for up to 24 hours. Blood also dilutes our pigments, affecting both the appearance of your tattoo as well as the healing process. Remember to stay calm and cool, you’re in good hands. There’s nothing to stress over, We will take care of you!
  • Do you do cover ups?
    Yes we do! we believe that a successful tattoo cover-up requires careful consideration of the existing tattoo and the desired new design. Request an appointment and send u pictures of the tattoo you want to cover, Our booking team will consult with one of our tattoo cover-up experts based on the photos of the existing tattoo. we will reach out to you to set up an appointment or a consultation.
  • Can I bring a family member or a friend with me?
    At OEK FACTORY, we prioritize the hygiene and space of our studio, which is why we prefer to welcome clients without company. However, please rest assured that we will take excellent care of you during your tattoo session
