Ling, an artist who has always been interested in this field and originally from China, immigrated to the US as a young adult and has continued to develop her art to this day.

“The consultation process is one of my favorite parts about tattooing. Getting to know the client and the reason behind the tattoo really inspires me to create a custom design fit for a specific person/story. I also enjoy free-handing during the actual tattoo process and I love the expressions on my clients’ face when I’m finished. The trust that they give and the satisfaction that they receive is what allows me to do what I do.”
