• Tattoo Style
Ryoki focuses on Japanese-style tattooing, based on proper and through knowledge of Japanese mythology, traditional culture, and history.
The second style in which she specializes consists of nature motifs such as flowers and birds.
Her designs are created with the inspiration she draws from the nature around her.
Her trademark phoenix tattoo is particularly popular among many clients.
Ryoki tattoos with coil machines, not Tebori,(handpoking).
• Tattoo Procedure
Setting up a consultation:
Clients are requested to make a consultation appointment before starting the tattoo-designing process.
Ryoki prefers to meet the clients face-to-face rather than online, as this ensures that both artist and client are on the same page and understand the plan for the design, as well as the process moving forward.
At the consultation, Ryoki draws her idea for the design with a pen directly onto the skin in order to consider size, detail, placement, etc.Ryoki prefers to meet the clients face-to-face rather than online, as this ensures that both artist and client are on the same page and understand the plan for the design, as well as the process moving forward.
Sometimes the consultation requires more than one session, especially if it is for a large project.
Please feel free to take a look at her work to familiarize yourself with her style.
Tattoos are by appointment only. Please use the contact form.
* Ryoki doesn’t do any online consultations such as via email, chat, or video meeting, as a Ryoki-designed individual tattoo requires a more personal touch, and this can only be achieved by meeting in person.
