If you’re looking for an authentic tattoo artist to apply convincing and realistic temporary tattoos for film shoots or photo sessions then look no further. Kian ‘Horisumi’ Forreal has years of experience working with temporary tattoo application for all kinds of media be it a small tattoo for a TV commercial, a sleeve for a music clip or a full japanese backpiece for a restaurant decor photo-shoot. Kian brings over two decades of real world tattoo experience to the table and not only paints on realistic tattoos that can convince anyone of their legitimacy but he can also provide consultation on the process, composition and artwork to make it as real to life as possible for any situation.
