ZHANG PO "PO PO"
My name is Po Zhang , aka, Popo. I come from Tianyin in China.
At the age of 2 1/2 years old I had a love of drawing. I graduated from the artists College of Tianyin, China.
I studied oil painting in school, and then I started to study body painting as an art form.
In 2003, I opened my first tattoo studio, "WEN SUO WEI WEN' .
The translation is "POPO TATTOO STUDIO."
I have been tattooing over 10 years now. I have traveled to many national and international
competitions and have won numerous awards. I have also served as a judge in many competitions in China.
For the past 3 years I have been tattooing in the United States, also winning many awards. Not only do I travel around the world but I also attend many tattoo conventions around the world including the New York Tattoo Show.
My experience grows as I see different forms and different artists around this country.
At the present time I work for " World famous Tattoo Lou's" of Long Island , N.Y.
My favorite style is photo Realistic, and Asian Traditional Style.
I am extremely happy to be able to live here and practice my art.
It brings me joy to share my art with the public and people of the United States.
As my art evolves it is my hope to have my work speak for itself.
I can not name everyone here who has helped me gain so much recognition
in the tattoo industry, bosses, customers, and friends alike.
Finally I would like to say it's never about the competitions,
it's the competition with yourself that has and will continue to help me grow as an artist.
I only hope to get better.
