Every Body is welcomed at UNIV ERSE Studio – Brody Polinsky’s sober refuge for queer tattooing in Berlin, Neukölln – recently celebrating its 10 year anniversary.
Their singular freehand pattern tattoo rituals are held in a private space loving called the Mothership – as well home for several ongoing art practices, collaborations, and UNIV ERSE Skateboards. Approaching placement in harmony with the body has become their mark on ancient modern tattooing – you can choose to wear it like a suit of spiritual armour.

Over the years many dear friends have kindly contributed – Servadio, Brunello, Ant The Elder, Noel’le Longhaul, Sally Rose, Makoto Chi, David Schiesser, Iñaki Aires, S William, Framacho, Mr Oger, HB Nielsen, Richard Warnock, Kane Trubenbacher, Spider Death, Stewart OC, Tati Compton, Stano, Agelos, Nion, Dylan Homer, Nico Jacoby, Gäel Cleinow, Joshua Solomon, Joseph Bryce, Evan Paul English, Gusak, Katya, Paolo Bosson, Jonny Breeze, Pete Corrie, Mike Mendez, Mare Blk, Ewa, Timor…as well the past residents have kept the studio alive – Elke, Craig, Orne, Laurie, Chris, Erna Martin, and Guilio.
