My artist journey started from a little art exhibit in Short North Columbus. I was inspired by people. People with Kanji Tattoos. Growing up in Japan, Kanji is a form of character and I've never looked at it as an Art. I started writing names in Kanji for co-works and friends, then next thing you know people requested me to write for their friends and family as a gift. I wanted to create something that is One Of a Kind so I made each one of them by my own hands Each one of them has a story to tell. Behind all of my art pieces and jewelry has someone's laughter, tears, wish and hopes. Dragon Ikka is growing by customers and fans because they are my fuel. Their story inspires me to make the next piece. What's your story? I would love to transform your energy in to my art.
Thank you for your time.
