South Korea is the only country that considers tattoo as illegal.
Despite the fact that authorities can storm in shops and make an arrest, more people from different corners around the globe visit the country to get their ink work done.
Zihwa is one of the most popular tattoo artists in South Korea. She continues to share her tattooing skills to Americans, Europeans, Chinese, and Hongkongers among others.
Because of the unique designs she creates, she is putting the country on the map in the world of tattooing. She promotes her work through social media as advertising and putting up a signage is a big no-no.
According to tattoo artists, although tattooing is still illegal, the perception of having a tattoo is slowly changing in South Korea.
