My name is Hannah T. Wagner, I was born in Vienna in 1982. I originally wanted to be an artist, but then took a different path and trained as an event organiser and technician. After this, I worked for several years in the art and culture sector, until I set up my own business running an event series called “Swell Time”, which were parties in the style of the 1950s and the 1960s.
Some years later, it was time for change – drawing and painting never lost their relevance in my life, even if I only pursued it as a hobby. Since I was 15, tattoos have also been very meaningful for me. With the help of my family, I could finally fulfill this long-time dream of mine.

I’m Antonia, born and raised in beautiful Carinthia and living in Vienna since 2021. I have always been fascinated by everything that has to do with design and creative crafts. I like to explore different media and love to decorate things with my art. It was obvious that I would like to pursue a career in this direction, but I didn’t know exactly what I wanted to do for the longest time.
When my friends gifted me a tattoo machine for my birthday, I started to look more intensively into tattoos and tattooing and completed the qualification course at Wifi. I am very grateful to have chosen this path for myself.
I like creating illustrative fineline tattoos because I like the delicate style and the details that are made possible with fine needles. I also feel very comfortable with combining fine lines with black areas, soft shadows or dotwork. In the process I am always discovering new facets of myself and my art, which evolves fluidly.
My designs are inspired by nature, human relationships, the connection to oneself, or are simply pretty – without claiming to be meaningful.
For me it’s a very special thing to be able to immortalize my drawings onto somebody and thus giving a small part of myself.
I am Karo and I lived in Vienna for most of my life (with two shorter Stops in St. Petersburg and Istanbul). I love to tattoo full, clean lines with minimalistic elements. I am interested in how little details can carry a lot of meaning and expression. I like fluid organic lines clashing with clear shapes. I am especially fond of freehand projects; drawing intuitive lines directly on skin, interacting with body’s dynamics. But I am also happy to design custom pieces for you.
I’ve been drawing and painting as long as I can remember. During my studies (economy and comparative social policy) I focused on critical feminism. Feminism and social justice became central themes in my creative work. My work often focusses on autonomy (how is it established, how is it systemically restricted and how does its assessment distort our perception) and its breaking point; intersectionality.
After finishing my studies, I worked in public administration (managing funding programs for creative and social businesses). In this context I drew my first “beasts unmasking”. Masking is an often-used term in neurodivergent bubbles (ADHD, autism, dyslexia, etc.). It describes the process of adapting oneself to the neurotypical society in an attempt to fit in. “Unmasking” is the process of acknowledging this dynamic and creating spaces, where disguising difference is no longer a necessity.
Through tattoos we can autonomously decide to make parts of ourselves visible, we can permanently change our body and how others perceive us. This is a thrilling and beautiful process; I am honored when I get to be a part of it.
