We are excited to announce to you that we are opening a new studio at a brand new location in Copenhagen. Located in the heart of hip Vesterbro in Copenhagen, at Sønderboulevard 30 by the corner of Skydebanegade and right next to Meatpacking District ( Kødbyen )

We are going to recreate the same calm, safe and private enviroment as Handshake Studio stands for, but this space is also occasionally inviting us to do much more events, courses and workshops to collaborate with different local artistic souls.

This new beginning was possible since Handshake Studio has a new part owner,

Martin Abrenica who has also been tattooing for the past 10 years and has a solid background from the military. Martin specializes in daily operations and putting structure on the program and has done so in various businesses, besides that has a passion in teaching.

With this new setup looking to open around end of October on Vesterbro (this will be "Handshake Studio" - we will still be keeping the location in Sølvgade for the tattoo artists who prefer to have a slightly more secluded setting, we are renaming this location: "Handshake Collective" !
