We study the Hausdorff dimension of Poissonian cutout sets defined via inhomogeneous intensity measures on Q-regular metric spaces. Our main results explain the dependence of the dimension of the cutout sets on the multifractal structure of the average densities of the Q-regular measure. As a corollary, we obtain formulas for the Hausdorff dimension of such cutout sets in self-similar and self-conformal spaces using the multifractal decomposition of the average densities for the natural measures.
