‘We want to show to the world that not only gangsters have tattoos, but also people such as doctors and judges. There’s a long tradition in this part of the world. It’s an ancient art form but also an endlessly changing, developing one. I’ve always been interested in tattoos, and wanted to do something that casts them in a more positive light. Those people who are into it are really into it. One of the things I’ve enjoyed most over the past two years is just by looking around at all the people there and thinking: where are all of you normally? There are all these young, innocent-looking kids entirely covered in tattoos. Young people in Hong Kong are looking for culture more and more. It’s just lovely to see all of those people feeling comfortable in that environment,” said in the latest interview Cole better known around Hong Kong as Jay FC.
