Leo was born and raised in Cambodia in a refugee camp and immigrated to Canada when he was three, he was raised in Collingwood and ran away and joined the circus when he was in his early twenties. He specialized in Aerial Arts - specifically Silks. He injured his knee after about 6 years in the circus and then focused on Modern Dance until he couldn't afford lessons.
He has always been into art and it runs in his family. Leo's friends always pushed him to tattoo but he tried to avoid to it, he finally broke down and decided to learn to tattoo when he could no longer afford dance lessons. He learned to tattoo from a good friend of Grim City's Steve Mack of Smack Tattoos in Toronto Ontario, where he apprenticed for 2 years.
Leo loves geometric tattoos as well as ornamental styles & Neo-Traditional. He wants to travel the world tattooing, and his hobbies include camping, snowboarding, not cutting grass and tequila.
