Currently I’m based in Seoul but from 2020, I’ll probably be based in Australia.
One of my acquaintances was a tattoo artist, so it naturally inspired me to start my career in tattoo artistry.
I get inspired by other cultures, as well as movies, music and cartoons.
I always enjoy tattooing people who fully trust me and leave it all to me. It’s good when people give me new ideas - but when they force their ideas or style on me, I can’t do as well because I lose interest.
I’m definitely inspired by Hajime Sorayama. And by a lot of other Japanese artists including Nagai Hiroshi, Eizin Suzuki and Keiichi Tanaami.
It’s different each time but I’ve been greatly influenced by Japanese music since I was young. Nowadays, I’m into non-English speaking music such as Thai punk and Turkish punk. Lately, I’ve been listening to a Turkish band named ‘Altin Gun’ on repeat.
@s9acer is a Korean artist. I think his thoughts and beliefs are really well established and I like that he expresses them in his drawings.
I like traveling to Tokyo for sure - since I’m so strongly influenced by the city. But I also like Melbourne because I feel comfortable there. It’s like a home away from home.
