Strange Love Studio 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 resident artist and the owner of the studio – Poke Fiction (Alia) 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 ‘stick and poke’ artist, she’s rising up the ladders thanks to her personal and intricate designs.
