Strange Love Tattoo opened it’s doors in October 2017 in northern Antwerp’s uprising art area “Het Eilandje”.
The studio is semi-private and has an hidden entrance above the coffeebar Black&Yellow. While waiting to get your tattoo you can enjoy some of the best coffee Antwerp has to offer.

The artist and owner of the studio Alina brings the body art scene back to it’s original roots by handpoking each tattoo, resulting in a personal and authentic tattooing experience. For the laymen among us, this is the more refined form of tattooing, softer and without machine, where the female touch of Alia provides less pain and better healing! Being Antwerp’s leading handpoke artist, she’s rising up the ladders thanks to her personal and intricate designs.


Tattooing by hand is the more refined form of tattooing, softer and without machine, providing less pain and better&faster healing.

All custom designs will be drawn in my style.
I do not tattoo other artist’s work or copy designs.
I do not send out any designs prior to the appointment time.
However, at the time of the appointment we can take as much time we need to make necessary changes until you are 100% happy with the design before we begin tattooing.


The entrance to the studio is through the Black&Yellow coffee bar.
You can wait there, I will come pick you up downstairs when it’s your turn.
Arriving on time is a must but please do not arrive too early as I likely be finishing up with another client or on a break and you’ll have to wait in the bar downstairs.

Getting a tattoo is something personal, so I suggest you come alone.
My studio has limited seating. If you do feel you need to bring a friend for moral support please only bring ONE extra person.
The rest can always wait downstairs in the bar.
