The design strategy conceives the large depth of the space as a quality of its own and therefore organizes the various uses of the tattoo studio by positioning three simple volumes of different heights along the enclosing wall.

The boxes accommodate the reception counter, an enclosed piercing area and service rooms, while the open space sequence is arranged in accordance with the creation of a tattoo and provides insight into the working process of the artists. Thus the storefront serves as reception area and the client attendance, proceeded by the area of drawing and designing situated behind the counter and directly linked with the tattooing zone.

The enveloping black side-wall and the maintained, continuous plaster-ceiling support the spatial continuum, enhanced by an independent layout of the neon lighting system. Each front plane of the volumes bear black/white graphics conceived as integrative part of the architectural design and outlining the studios dedication.
