Xiao Gao began studying tattoo art in 2009, when the community in China was still very small. After a period of self-study, he joined a tattoo shop to study as an apprentice. Xiaogao is very conscious of the permanence of ink, and he takes his role as a tattoo artist very seriously, investing his years of experience into every piece. He has been with Shanghai Tattoo since 2013, where he has developed a reputation for being a quiet perfectionist whose sweet nature has not gone unnoticed by the ladies. With his depth of experience, Xiaogao is a very flexible artist, adept at line work, dot work, totems, and many other styles.
