Paul Lai during revolutionary tattoo session in Hong Kong. Lai grew up in Hong Kong, and then left to the USA to get education. He returned to his hometown after 12 years as a photojournalist in September 2019 to cover ongoing protests. The tattoo has elements characteristic for the Hong Kong revolution such as a numbrella, gas mask and worker helmet. It stands out from other revolutionary tattoos by the inscription "Press" on the worker helmet.
