Most clients come to me looking for a botanical tattoo artist. My practice included training to technically tattoo anything but my favorite tattoos are botanical tattoos: floral and fauna, scientific type illustrations. I love all things that are of nature. My goal is to make tattoos that flow and look natural on the body and will also age well.
I went to UCLA and obtained my B.A. in Fine Arts in '06. I've been practicing tattooing since summer 2006 (apprencticeship) to spring 2011 and from fall 2015 to present. The 4 year hiatus was due to health complications which disabled me from tattooing. It was a life changing experience that re-calibrated my priorities with a renewed ideology on work-life-balance. Health is number one.
Since the beginning of 2019, I've been working by appointment only in my own private studio in Berkeley. Working on my own was the ultimate game changer in my tattoo career. I feel so much gratitude for the continued support of my clients and followers.
My favorite pastime is walking with my pup, Juju, a 13 year old, 11 lb Boston terrier. Aside from going to work with Juju, I like finding ways to self-care in life —cook, exercise, burning man, dance, and travel to new places.
I grew up in Sacramento, CA and left at age 18. Since then I've lived all along the Pacific coast -Los Angeles, Seattle, Portland, and ultimately love the Bay Area best because I am closest to my family. My grandma still resides in and never left Chinatown SF since 1968.
My great great grandfather arrived to Angel Island as a Chinese immigrant in 1909. I owe everything to my ancestors and their hard work to provide me the opportunity to live the life I have now.
