Tattoodo, a Copenhagen, Denmark-based company operating an online tattoo platform, announced that it completed a DKK 35M ($5.3M) capital investment round.

The round was led by Seed Capital and included several private investors such as Rene Rechtman, Errol Damelin, Daniel Agger, Christian Stadil, and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.

Tattoodo, founded in 2013 by Johan Plenge (CEO) and Mik Thobo-Carlsen, built a digital platform that allows users to view artists’ portfolios and make bookings at tattoo studios. The company claims to have 1.1 million monthly active users and is yet to become profitable, as in 2018 it reported a gross loss of DKK 13.6M ($2M).

Prior to this round, Tattoodo raised almost $19M in external funding from backers such as well-known business angels and celebrities including Football player Daniel Agger, Hummel-owner Christian Stadil, actor Nicolai Coster-Waldau, and Silicon Valley based venture firms NEA and Rocketship.vc.

In 2017 Nordic Eye also invested in the company. Among the new investors on board are the board member of TV 2, Jimmy Maymann and Vice President of Novo Nordisk, Jeppe Christiansen.
