Based in Singapore, Melvin Tay SG goes under the name “Crying Freeman Tattoo On The Road”. He has been tattooing since 2006 and spent 3 years travelling the world, experiencing other cultures so defining the background of pieces he paints. He has taken part in a number of conventions, including those across Europe. True to his culture he specializes in tattoos such as Chinese painting, calligraphy and oriental abstract. His body is the canvas of his life – where experiences are hidden under the lines and shadings on his arms, legs, shoulders and backs. “Like everyone else, I was born naked and crying, waiting for my life to be painted freely on my skin”.
