South Korean tattoo artist Sa Jin embodies elements of oriental culture within his creative work.

His portfolio has the central theme of Asian mythology presented in modern ways in an attempt to generate interest in the Orient. Using a color palette of mostly blacks, reds and yellows, Sa Jin paints an innovative picture of gothic-styled Asian themes. There is a wildly spiritual aura emanating through the tattoos that hold viewers in an eerie trance wondering about their implicit essence.

Two qualities that stand out in Sa Jin's artwork are color and the melting design. At the bottom of each tattoo, it looks as though certain faces and features are melting off the skin, creating a surreal effect.
