Chat with Tattoo Artist Ping

tattoo artist ping hickory nc

Ping’s Studio is an in-depth look at the creative process and client relationships of local tattoo artist Phinthone Senesombath. Ping is a Hmong American woman who does not conform to the traditional expectation of a tattoo artist. Ping is a fine artist, conducting a strict tattoo practice where she only tattoos her original artwork. This exhibition will include a re-creation of her studio complete with , inks, tools, and flash wall; original sketches; and photographs of completed tattoos. Some of Ping’s clients will stand on exhibition pedestals as living statues during special events throughout the run of the exhibition. Audiences will follow the progression of a tattoo, and explore the therapeutic aspect of tattooing.
