Yayoi has loved drawing and reading manga and comics since she was little. Some of her favourites are… She wanted to be a tattooist after getting her first tattoo when she was 19 and still living in Japan. She has focused on a style that depicts manga girls with red and black contrast work. Apart from this style, she likes thicker line work and traditional American style. She arrived in Sydney in 2009 on a working holiday visa and began working at Broadway tattoo in the city before calling Kaleidoscope Tattoo her home.
