Popular fashion/lifestyle blog HypeBeast.com recently hooked up with Los Angeles-based tattoo artist Jun Cha, who began tattooing at the early age of 15 and has since risen in the ranks as popular artist for his black and grey work.

Within a six-year span, Jun has developed a commanding presence for his work with the needle, tattooing the likes of Jermaine Dupri and Drama of MTV’s “Fantasy Factory,” among others. His talents have helped spawn further projects outside of tattooing, including collaborations with both The Hundreds and C1RCA.

In featuring the multi-faceted artist, Hypebeast gain a better understanding of his initial foray into tattooing, his monochromatic style and his inspirations.
