With a global following of over a million, Kozo is a pioneer of colored micro-realistic tattoos, seamlessly blending classical art with modern pop culture. Bringing past and present together in each work, his foray into art began at an early age, and since then, he never stopped exploring different forms and mediums. He flawlessly translates his tattoo designs to traditional mediums like canvas paintings and marble sculptures. Employing a distinctive approach, each artwork bears his signature touch – tattooed using a coil tattoo machine, with the needle integrated into the piece itself, a unique fusion of fine art and tattoo craftsmanship. Kozo continues evolving the tattoo world from his private studio in Brooklyn, and his artworks are presented in galleries worldwide.
