Tyrant is a native of Shanghai, and his early talent for art earned him a place at the Shanghai Art & Design Academy. He struggled to find his focus, however, until just before he graduated, when he discovered tattoo art. With his technical background in art, Tyrant was a quick study, and he immediately knew he had found a craft worth a lifetime of dedication. At first, His parents refused to support him, but they became so impressed by his focus and passion that they grew to embrace this new form of art. Professionally tattooing since 2013, Tyrant has matured quickly thanks to the guidance of his friends in the community. Although he is curious about ancient tattoo practice and technique, he has found his specialty in European-style realistic and neo-traditional styles.
