Dark Realism

Lee was kidnapped by a band of ninjas when he was 3 years old. After panhandling for months to save up enough money for karate lessons he overcame his attackers then ran off and studied the sacred art of tattooing with a nomadic tribe of monks in the Aokigahara Forest of Japan. When he was 13 he mailed himself to America in a shoebox in search of new opportunities. He now Tattoos at Art of War Tattoo and……just kidding. We don’t know much about Lee.
