“This is my passion and realistic tattooing is what I really love,” he writes, proving that you don't really lose when you're doing something you love. As long as you're doing it for the sake of passion instead of competing with other individuals.

He's not mainly a horror tattoo artist like Paul Acker, but he does a lot of realistic horror and gore works in both black and grey and color—all of them to-die-for.

Seunghyun is also acquainted with fellow horror tattoo artist Dongkyu Lee, whom he met back in South Korea when he was still starting out himself at Tattoo Korea. Both artists moved to Canada to further their careers since tattooing back in Korea isn't as easy to break into.
