Kim Saigh – Show Ambassador Singapore Tattoo Show 2010

Kim Saigh

Kim’s tattoo career began the day she received her first tattoo at the age of 16. She remembers wanting to take the machine out of the guy’s hand and do it herself, and ended up backseat driving the tattoo.  Two years later, her dream of holding the machine became a reality when she was offered an apprenticeship based on a drawing for a friend’s tattoo.

Kim opened Cherry Bomb Tattoo after several years, and went on the star in reality TV series L.A. Ink.  She is now a well-respected artist in the tattoo trade which she has been part of for 16 years.

Despite being a self-confessed metal head, Kim cultivated a deep passion for yoga over the years, and has even called it her ‘saving grace’.

The Singapore Tat2 Show 2010 will be Kim Saigh’s first Show in Singapore, and she is looking forward to being this year’s Show Ambassador.

“The tattoo show is an event that we know will draw different and varied visitors, keen to be educated, experience the art and be entertained. Some enthusiasts travel around the world to take part in tattoo shows, it is a time in which this art is experienced on one’s own skin and, it is difficult not to be affected by the unique atmosphere that makes tattoos a very familiar and easy form of body art for everybody’” said Kirby Lian from Utopia Studio, the Official Event Partner who is also the show’s inspirational mentor.
