With a wealth of experience and a true passion for her craft, Hyejin “Yammy” Lee is making waves with her unique minimalist color realism style. With a background in design and over five years of experience as an art teacher, her expertise in the field is undeniable. Not only is she a licensed teacher, but she also has over a decade of tattoo experience under her belt. This combination of skills in design and teaching has allowed her to perfect her craft and develop her own signature technique.
Yammy is a firm believer in the power of minimalism and color realism in tattooing. She believes that less is more and that the key to creating great tattoos is to capture the essence of the subject in a simple yet striking way. This philosophy is evident in her work, which is known for its clean lines and striking use of color.
But Yammy isn’t content to rest on her laurels. In fact, she is always seeking new ways to improve her craft and push the boundaries of what is possible in tattooing. This drive to constantly improve is what sets her apart from other tattoo artists and has helped her to create truly unique and special pieces.
One area where Yammy truly excels is in her pet-based tattoos. Her ability to capture the essence of animals in a simple yet striking way has earned her a reputation as one of the best pet tattoo artists in the industry. Her work is renowned for its intricate details and lifelike colors, capturing the essence of each pet in a small coin-size design. She has gained the appreciation of many of her clients with how her love for tattooing and dedication to her craft is evident in every piece she creates.
“Many people think of their pets as family, care for them, and want to keep them for life. My work gives satisfaction to many people, and I appreciate it and became more into it,” Yammy said.
But it’s not just her pet-based tattoos that have earned her a reputation as one of the best in the field. Her minimalist color realism style extends to all of her work, too, including portraits, landscapes, and abstract designs. Each piece is a work of art crafted with precision and care.
As a globetrotter, Yammy has guest worked in different countries and participated in conventions all over the world. Her love for tattooing has taken her to faraway places, allowing her to reach out to many opportunities to meet, work, and learn from other tattoo artists from different cultures.
