Tattoo artist Min Zumi of Authentic Ink in Sydney, Australia, has mastered a very distinct style. He permanently decorates his clients with "fabric patches". The designs look every bit as real, all thanks to Min Zumi's immense attention to detail — each of the lines he places perfectly mimic the look of stitching.

Working in this fashion, the tattooist often pays homage to pop-culture, too. For example, he has already completed Banjo-Kazooie, Son Goku, and Daisy Duck-inspired pieces. Scroll down and take a look for yourself!

Min Zumi told Bored Panda his passion for creating tattoos started as soon as he got his first one himself. "It was very exciting. The outcome was great and so I realized that I also wanted to be able to design and create the same excitement for others."

The artist has developed his style through painstaking research and working with other professionals in the field. "The great creations and skills of other artists are like fuel. It motivates me. I am constantly researching artworks and searching for inspirational pieces so I can create a better design for my clients too," Min Zumi explained.

"The fine details are an effect consisting of thin lines of varying colors and shades which create the illusion of threads sewn onto the skin. The intricate design is what makes my tattoos unique and delicate," the passionate tattooist explained, emphasizing the importance of drawing every line with extreme care. "The process requires a lot of planning and concentration but it is also very fun."

If you dig Min Zumi's style, feel free to book a session with him! Of course, each design and session is different, but a typical tattoo will take between 3 and 6 hours, and the artist charges roughly $200 per hour.
