South Korea based tattoo artist Woojin Choi, or Oozy, creates detailed black and white works which often incorporate a macabre twist. Oozy’s pieces are often very line-oriented, an effect that resonates with the appearance of classic woodblock prints. His fine line tattoos explore scenes that are not as innocent as they first appear, such as a geisha who partially hides her own skeleton behind a decorative fan, and a figure who is being lifted from a bowl of Chashu ramen.
Oozy’s tattoos, almost always solely done in black ink, though occasionally ornamented with tasteful yet minimal amounts of color, like a splash of blood, reference multiple storytelling genres. Oozy frequently inks horror scenes that recall the tropes of Japanese Guro art, nature scenes, and fantasy films. They also seem incredibly unique in their intricacy and sense of imagination.
