Life & Work with Jingyue Huang

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jingyue Huang.

Hi Jingyue, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I began studying traditional art education from both the Central Academy of Fine Arts and Zurich University of the Arts. During my studies, I fell in love with the art of tattooing, which allowed me to combine my love of tattooing with creating art to tell my client’s stories. Growing up in Mainland China, I fell in love with the history of my culture and wanted to bring that traditional art style to life in tattooing. I also chose to specialize in fine line tattoos that involve elegant yet subtle colorwork.

My intention is to create magic on my clients’ skin. To me, tattoos are a beautiful art form that allows our feelings and experiences to be captured in a beautiful, everlasting medium. I’m truly honored to be able to work with each of my clients to bring their visions to life. The happiness on my clients’ faces after receiving their tattoos are such special moments that I am thankful to be a part of.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
Thankfully it’s been a fairly smooth road overall. I would not be where I am today without my friends and clients who requested me during my apprenticeship. My hobby became my passion and with the help of my client’s I was able to move to Los Angeles. It was here that I met my friend and inspiration, Eva Kurabudak, who helped me with my technique and taught me the value of my work.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I specialize in Asian fine arts and fine line tattooing! I love painting and tattooing traditional paintings and it’s a dream to be able to tattoo my art onto my clients. I pride myself in being able to take my client’s stories such as where they’re from or where they strive to be and create it into a unique piece of art.

I specialize in fine line tattoos. In order to achieve thin, sharp, and clean designs that remain saturated after healing, I use a combination of both single needles and three needles.

My master, Pingguang Zhou, helped introduce me to the world of traditional art. I still paint with him every week to refine my skills, that way, I can bring my two passions together.

What matters most to you? Why?
The most important thing to me is the quality of the art that I create. I love creating a connection with all of my clients, this helps me bring their ideas to life and get the best result for them. I also always follow up with my clients on how their tattoo is healing because I want to be sure they’re happy with the final result.

I am truly happiest when I am able to bring my client’s ideas and stories to life.
