Time Out says

Have you always wanted Mother Teresa’s face tattooed on your upper arm? With award-winning tat artist Kin Liu, you can get Jesus, Mary and the whole gang without worrying about a horror story of biblical proportions ending up on your skin.  Kin Liu opened up his parlour, Soul Canvas Ink, in Sheung Wan after 13 years in the business and experience at Hong Kong’s revered Tattoo Temple. A respected tat artist in the community, he specialises in realistic human portraits, so if Mother Teresa isn’t your cuppa, he also does celebrity figures like Bob Marley, Al Pacino and even K-Pop star TOP. Prices for a black and white portrait go for around $5,000 and colour goes for $6,000. The wait time is usually two months for Liu to conjure up a design, though. But if you have something already in mind, the wait is a mere week.


Flat 1504, Bonham Commercial Centre, No 44A-46 Bonham Strand West,

Opening hours:
