Tattooing out of Vancouver, Canada, Liz Kim's tattoos really bring something fresh and funky to blackwork tattoos. Her tattoos have a sketch-like feel and really jump off the skin with their defined lines. Her images are super quirky and unique, and really have a character of their own.
I caught up with Liz to ask her a few questions about her style, inspiration, and how she got started. She admitted that at the beginning, she had fun doing a lot of "drunk tattoos at house parties for skater boys, and didn't really take it seriously as a career choice until about May 2015."
She says that at some point, "a few friends started asking me for nicer designs, and coming over for them on a regular basis, and I got a lot of practice that way."
The best thing that Liz likes about tattooing is helping people express themselves through art. She says, "I feel like I get to help them express themselves, and that feels really nice when they end up with exactly what they had in mind."
