In this episode of Sessions, Apro Lee gives his client a beautiful traditional Korean tiger tattoo.
Filmed at the iconic London Tattoo Convention, we met up with Apro Lee to hear a bit about how he approaches the fine art of tattooing. He is known for his incredible take on a Korean staple: a depiction of a tiger. Apro explains that these particular animals are felt to be protective guardians and are often put in homes, or on the skin, as spiritual amulets that safeguard from negative or evil spirits. His tiger tattoos are powerful portrayals themselves, but Apro also makes sure to imbue his tattoos with good energy while he is tattooing. The clients may not be aware of it, but it’s another aspect of Apro Lee’s working process that makes his pieces so special.
Coming from Seoul, Korea, Apro’s cultural background informs not only the subject matter he prefers to tattoo but also how he hopes to influence the tattoo industry within his country. Noting that, even still, many people who have tattoos are viewed as “bad” or corrupt, Apro makes sure that he carries himself with a lot of compassion and positivity towards others. He also makes sure that the people he tattoos will put forth the same energy into their surrounding community, an effort that will help slowly change how mainstream society perceives tattooed individuals. When people reach out to him for his work, Apro makes sure to choose clients that approach him politely and have a kind spirit. In this way, together, both Apro and the person he tattoos can be sure to make a positive impression on the world around them.
