“There is no greater privilege for an artist, than to have a client carry one of their pieces with them for life.”
Helen is a Toronto based tattoo artist who specializes in detailed fine line floral pieces. She is originally from China but spent most of her teenage and adult life in Toronto, Ontario.
Helen started drawing at a very young age; essentially as soon as she was able to hold a pencil in hand. Her love for art and drawing was as evident as her talent.
During Helen’s childhood, she always showed interest in the arts and anything that involved creativity. She was enrolled in many different classes; though painting was the only one that had stood out and caught her interest.
Her distinctive tattoo style attracts people from all over the world; especially young women who had never gotten tattooed before. The femininity and versatility of her tattoos offer individuals elegant, delicate pieces that embellish and flow well with the body.
Helen started tattooing professionally in 2013. As she started to progress as a tattoo artist; she soon realized that she had found her niche in delicate floral work. Constantly refining and polishing this craft keeps her extremely busy and motivated to escalate to the next level.
A glimpse through her portfolio reveals her preference for botanical, nature themed and wildlife pieces . Although floral is the style she is technically known for, she does however enjoy dabbling in other tattoo styles and incorporating different aspects of it in her work to keep things fresh and interesting.
Following a lifelong passion for creative self-expression; tattooing came natural for Helen. “Tattooing is a medium where I’m not only able to distinguish myself as an artist, but also permits me to create unique connections with individuals who chose to trust me with their skin. It’s beautiful to be a part of something that a client will treasure for a lifetime. There is no greater privilege for an artist, than to have a client carry one of their pieces with them for life. It is one of the most gratifying parts of my profession.”
Helen’s aim is to continuously develop herself and her skill set. She is tireless about her job and enjoys meeting every client who comes to her with trust to re-create their vision and dream.
Working at Golden Iron Tattoo Studio has continuously helped Helen gain experience in her field with the hopes of one day becoming a household name in the tattoo industry.
“My journey as a tattooist has been an amazing ride so far and I am extremely grateful to be part of such an amazing lifestyle. My passion for tattooing is so much stronger than it was 3 years ago and it continues to grow with the love and support I have received from my family, friends and clients. I look forward to continuing down this path and await meeting new individuals that i can help create pieces for that will stand the test of time.”
