clients' testimonials

grass style tattoo and chinese cursive script are the most popular styles

Grass style tattoo, also known as cursive script, is by far the most popular ink design. Of the 5 Chinese Calligraphy Tattoo Stylesthat I offer, the majority of my clients choose the grass style writing. There is a reason. Most people love grass style calligraphy for its beauty and flow. Grass style tattoos are natural, energetic and attractive to the eye. They are an organic art that spring straight from the heart. The best result can only be achieve by a calligraphy artist, reflecting the creative energy of the artist. Each brush movement and calligraphy stroke reveal our mind and desires. Font tattoo can never have the beauty of grass style writing because fonts are flat with no energy in them and they are not an organic art. Cursive script is spontaneous and lively. Computer font is superficial looking and dull. Grass style calligraphy tattoos reflect your sprituality in a way that no other medium can.

grass style tattoo, wisdom quotes

You can dramatically enhance your grass style tattoos with wisdom quotes. Whatever quote you choose, your design will look marvelous. You can choose inspirational quotes such as celebrity quotes, philosophy quotes, Shakespeare quotes, Bible quotes, etc. For many people, grass style tattoos express their optimism, zest for life, and hope in the future. Although cursive script writing is said to be unpredictable and wild, its natural movements are simply irresistible. It is almost like a "spur of the moment" expression. This is why people love it.

grass style tattoos features:

  1. variable text flow (vertical or horizontal). Vertical text flow is more popular.
  2. flexible character size
  3. could have a link between 2 characters
  4. crazy grass style writing (wild cursive script calligraphy) is not easily readable because it is a more abstract composition.

Below are some of the custom tattoo designs done for my clients. Many of them choose grass style tattoos with wisdom quotes. Their quotes have profound meanings and wise sayings; they show intelligence and experience in life. My clients appreciate my work and talent and many were kind enough to provide feedback and comments. I would like to share their testimonials with you.

Philosophy Quotes

quote from German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche (Grass Style Tattoo, Life Meaning, Cursive Calligraphy)
“Siu-Mui possesses a mastery over the art of Chinese calligraphy, but avoids the trap that most calligraphers are unaware of — that direct translation doesn't necessarily convey the correct interpretation.”

“Siu-Mui takes time to understand the objective behind your desired phrase/word, and then undertakes thorough research to make sure your tattoo is genuine. The quality of her artwork and calligraphic form are beautiful, and communication with her is an organic, rewarding process.”
