Handshake Studio is looking for a dedicated full-time tattoo artist to join our private tattoo studio in Copenhagen K from the 1st of September. Our beloved colleagues Max and Emma can soon be found elsewhere, as Max will be opening his own tattoo studio and gallery at Nørrebro. We wish them all the best on this new adventure! We therefore have a spot open for any dedicated artist who wants to be self-employed and work as an independent artist, with a low fixed monthly rate, where you decide your own working hours. If this sounds interesting to you, let us know and we can arrange a guest spot from mid-August, so you can get a feel of the vibe and fellow artist in our studio. THE STUDIO The main purpose of Handshake Studio is to produce solid tattoos and high-quality art in a clean and professional environment. We're committed to creating something unique, for both ourselves and our customers. You can expect a professional and artistic attitude towards tattooing and art. The cozy and stress-free atmosphere is our most important and treasured aspect of Handshake as a studio - and it helps to make sure everyone feels welcome in our social tattoo studio. We also showcase guest-artists, painters and other kinds of creative souls on a regular basis. We encourage everyone to take part in our creative community by having drawing nights, walk-in parties, creative events and showcasing local creative souls in order to create a strong social portfolio.
