Hong Kong Tattoo Legend

Hong Kong Tattoo Legend

With his traditional Chinese/Japanese patterns, Jimmy Ho, now in his sixties,
remains one of the coolest and most forward ­thinking tattooists in Hong Kong. 


James Ho, Jimmy’s father, is widely recognized as Hong Kong’s very first local tattoo artist as he started inking foreign sailors as early as 1960s ­ so if anything, Jimmy learnt everything from his old man.

Jimmy opened his first tattoo shop at the age of 14, followed by more than 40 years serving clients including film stars and local gangsters. We visited his shop in Portland Street, Mong Kok, to talk to the veteran about his glorious career and “the golden age of Hong Kong tattoo”, while getting a koi fish tattoo on ourselves.
