The Madly Witty Cartoon Style Tattoos of Hong Ji Sun

Tattoo Artists1 min Read

South Korean tattooer Hong Ji Sun serves some lighthearted fun with her witty cartoon style tattoos.

If you're a big kid at heart, then you might want a piece of Hong Ji Sun's art. Drawn on with bold lines and colored in with bright shades, it's almost as if Ji Sun took inspiration for her tattoos from Sharpie markers.

With her comical cartoon style, you'd think Ji Sun's designs were Sharpie doodles. All of her designs feature original animal characters consisting of silly rabbits, squirrels, mice, Corgi dogs, and even a skull with a bow placed in rather witty situations. She works alongside her husband and fellow tattooer, Woohyeun Heo.

You have to appreciate the South Korean tattoo artist's humor to really find her work amusing. Her designs remind me the most of retro cartoons, with the way they're so bluntly designed, with their lighthearted comedy. Most of Hong Ji Sun's cartoon tattoos tell witty little stories that are bound to make you smile — nothing dark or complex, only pure old school fun.

Before Ji Sun pursued tattooing to work alongside her husband, she used to dabble with crafts. She mainly sewed patches of her cartoon characters which she then sold or personally used. Nowadays, she still sews original designs — tattoo flash patches to go with her clients' sweet new tattoos.
