The first tattoo that Rin ever did was on her mum! Encouraged by her artistic parents to pursue her creativity, she had begun drawing, brush painting and calligraphy at a young age before discovering body painting (which she did to anyone she could get her hands on). When she stumbled upon her first tattoo book she was hooked, and with the guidance of Jian Huan Chen, a tattooist from Diao Long, in Shangai, she began her tattooing career.
In 2008, Rin came to Australia to pursue her dream and find the best tattoo studio to work at. Word got back that Kaleidoscope was the place to be, so after dropping off some drawings to Luciano, she was over the moon to receive a phone call the very next day offering her an apprenticeship.
Under Luciano’s watchful gaze, Rin has further developed her natural tattooing ability and has come to enjoy many styles and forms. Her favourites remain oriental, calligraphy and Japanese manga.
