The Shockin 'City Tattoo Studio was founded by Waldemar Wahn in 1990, at a time when tattooing was tolerated in very small social circles and more in the underground. Originally the company headquarters were in Bad Ischl, but soon the move to Vienna took place, where the studio as a family business prospered until today. In 2000, due to lack of space in the old restaurant, relocation of the company headquarters to larger premises was necessary. Finally there was enough space to expose more oil paintings and sculptures and to ensure first-class work hygiene. In 2007, Waldi's daughter, Osa Wahn, took over the management and the tattoo studio continues in Burggasse 63.
