One way to think of Zen Ken is this: he is a total state of focus that incorporates a total togetherness of body and mind. Zen Ken is a way of being. It also is a state of mind. Zen Ken is able to cut through illusions and tattoo ridiculously meticulous designs without distortion created by your own thoughts. In 2004, Ken sold his tattoo shop to ride a motorcycle around the world, and tattoo, and sell his flash. He returned to Seattle because it is a great place to be. Zen Ken has been tattooing since 1991, and has been part of the Emporium family since 2006. He is here to complete you with the perfect tattoo.
