Local tattoo artist creates art on more than skin

Ram Lee owns Traverse City Tattoo and has been doing tattoos for 20 years.

Traverse City Tattoo owner and artist Ram Lee has taken tattoo art to new mediums. Lee has been a tattoo artist for 20 years and has made appearances at conventions, tv shows and travels all over the country being a guest artist.

Lee has made his artwork mobile and accessible by putting it on shoes like Toms and Vans. Perfect for someone who isn't ready to commit to a real tattoo, the shoes become featured parts of their wardrobe or just displayed as works of art. Lee says the shoe art is mostly for fun and he's still very busy with his tattoo shop.
