We construct a family of qq-deformations of SU(2) for complex parameters q1q \neq 1. For real qq, the deformation coincides with the compact quantum SUq_q(2) group. For qRq \notin \mathbb R, SUq_q(2) is only a braided compact quantum group with respect to a twisted tensor product functor for C*-algebras with an action of the circle group.
