WE GO WEST!October 07 2016

Happy to anounce that we're invited to the cultural festival POTENTIALe​ this November. In the category Lost Spaces we will rediscover and reactivate a vacant and forgotten space.

Anyone interested in design, photography & media art, check that out. Good stuff will happen in the west of Austria!

** New Tattoo! New Tattoo! New Tattoo! **October 07 2016

During these days of grey and heavy sky, we thought some colour would do good.

Opening Party of our Temporary Tattoo Studio / BiaschtlbudeApril 28 2016

A big thanks to all who dropped by and joined us for an amazing opening party, we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. We also want to thank Design Lichtblick, for suppling us with their great vintage interior and the Ruby Marie Hotel and brickspaces, for making this possible.

If you didn't make it to the opening, you can still visit us at our pop up store till may 15th. Plus we still have some drinks left, so just ask for a beer. :)

OPENING Temporary Tattoo Studio!April 12 2016

Nach einigen Stops auf verschiedenen Designmärkten, werden wir dank dem Ruby Marie Hotel & Bar sesshaft - zumindest für einen Monat lang. Am 20.4. eröffnet die Biaschtlbude seinen Pop Up und Young and SmittenWien's erstes Temporary Tattoo Studio.

Die Biaschtlbude frittiert ihre Pommes nicht im Fett, sondern bringt diese per Siebdruck auf fair produzierte Kleidung. Gebraten wird dabei natürlich noch vom Chef persönlich. In seiner Wiener Küche bringt er dabei alles auf Textil was er gerade in seinem geistigen Kühlschrank findet.

Bei uns werden die Peckerlpickerl vor Ort auf unserem Tätowierstuhl (wir haben uns nicht lumpen lassen) auf die Haut kommen oder können  als Tattoo to-go mit nach Hause genommen werden.

Am Eröffnungstag gibts handgedruckte Plakate frisch aus der Siebdruckwerkstatt, feine Angebote und ab 17:00 Musik, Bier und ganz viel Liebe.

Weil das Gute so nah liegt, werden wir um 10:00 in den 5.Stock in die Ruby Marie Hotel & Bar wechseln.

Öffnungszeiten des Stores:
Mo-Fr: 11–19 Uhr
Sa: 10–18 Uhr

Something big is coming in April! Biaschtlbude invited us to join his Pop Up store in Vienna in April. We are pretty damn excited!!

"Peckerl ohne Nadel"March 15 2016

The Gap Magazine asked us some questions lately:

C'mon c'mon!January 24 2016

We need your help to get our first store in Vienna!

Our baby Young & Smitten has grown into a 2 1/2 year old toddler by now and we are eager to try something new in 2016. Since an online shop doesn't allow you a lot of real interaction with people we've always dreamed of a real shop where we could tattoo people right away after they chose their design. We carried our idea a bit further and thought about drawing directly onto our client's skin with tattoo pencils (to get you your personal customized tattoo in any size) or drawing tattoo workshops with kids.

Click on the facebook link below and support us with a LIKE on the picture. The more likes we get the more likely we can open our temporary tattoo studio on Mariahilfer Straße.

 Thanks for your support!!


The MuseJanuary 24 2016

Whenever you feel inspired to perform an aria under the shower, to invent the “best gin cocktail ever” or you need to find THE reason why you can't go to sports class this week, your inner muse arises: She might kiss you or she might kick you, she might sometimes say “Bugger off!” when you think you need her advice the most. But in any case it’s good to know, that she is always around. 

Weihnachts-HalliGalli am DonaukanalDecember 14 2015

Last saturday we joined a new and a not-the-usual kitschy christmas market along the danube channel. Designy and artsy stuff next to sweet delights and proper Glühwein. Zuckergoscherl played a lovely openair-gig but our highlight of the evening: Russel Bruner (the man with the top hat) performing some classic Charleston dances! 

To fit into this quirky and charming environment we left our usual stand and had prepared something special: Barbara with a classic old-school vendors tray and Elke in a pimped trenchcoat full of tattoos.

Barbara has been a big helping hand since the early days. So it was just a natural thing to officially join Young & Smitten. She likes the sound of seagulls and one day wants to own an alpaca called Pinky. We like her adorable illustrations and are more than excited to release one of them soon!

Landjäger & AktionstheaterOctober 12 2014

Since the very beginning of Young and Smitten we wanted to do a sausage tattoo but the designs always got kicked out after surveys. The guys from Landjäger Magazin got balls and know as we do, that Frankfurter are great and funny things.

But thats not all, the aktionstheater ensemble is celebrating their 25th birthday. We honoured their contemporary and edgy approach to theater with a "Not everything is at it seems" Tattoo.

You can find the result of our collaboration on the last page of the new Landjäger issue.

KunstautomatAugust 15 2014

The ArtDesign Feldkirch -Kunstautomat is an old cigarette machine, carefully repainted and reactivated with lots of lovely things inside. This summer we are happily contributing with our tats. Since today you can find the Kunstautomat at the Poolbar Festival (Which by the way is also a great summer venue if you happen to be in the west of Austria!)

It's our very first birthday!July 18 2014

Time flies when you're having fun, and oh-my-god have we had fun throughout this last year! Thank you for all the support we have received, and for the countless magic encounters – at flea markets, fashion fairs, museum shops or through the interwebs.

To celebrate, we have launched 2 new designs which are very dear to our heart: the confused Hippo who wants to be a zebra, and the shy stitch puppet Elsa who has just escaped nana's tablecloth.

Check them out:
