Mia Kim is a fine line tattooist specialising in delicate, feminine designs.
Born in Seoul, South Korea, Mia has been tattooing now for almost 3 years. Her love for tattoo began at the age of 19 after a couple visits to her friends tattoo studio where they worked as an apprentice.
Always drawing from a young age, Mia studied art during high school and majored in jewellery design at uni.
After settling into Sydney, she started her apprenticeship in 2018 at Goodfellaz ink in Neutral Bay. From then, she worked at Kaleidoscope tattoo studio for 2 years until recently joining Little Tokyo.
Her favourite imageries to tattoo are delicate designs with light shading, fine and clean linework. She draw inspiration from the soft curves of a women’s body, snakes, and delicate flowers.
Aside from tattooing, Mia enjoys drawing and swimming in her spare time.
Tattooing has taught Mia the value and responsibility in the permanance of her artwork on a person’s body.
