Jun Cha‘s work as an artist seems somewhat ironic. As tattoos come to prominence and develop as a legitimate art form in modern culture, the industry finds itself in a bit of a renaissance. Within this, Cha is inspired not only by his contemporaries, but by Renaissance art of the 15th century. Such motifs were easily found in Paris, France, where Cha recently wrapped up a 14-day pop-up tattoo studio. The above video charts the Los Angeles-based artist as he talks about his early influences, how tattooing has evolved, and eloquently touches on his own personal grayscale style during his residency in a global capital.
