Yoon told ABC News her body art aims "to express multi-dimension[al] perspectives that humans possess, and, thus, I have decided to paint my ideas on my own body."

The Korea National University of Arts student said anything can inspire her.

"There is nothing grand...about my source of inspiration," Yoon explained. "Anything, even in a very ordinary life, could be great inspirations with different perspectives. But if I were to choose something out of my routine that draws inspiration, I would say that movies often help me twist my perspectives."

Yoon said that she's been "drawing and painting" since she was a young girl, excelling at the most prestigious art schools in Korea.

Still, she's thrilled her art has captured the internet's attention for now.

"As I expand my areas on illusion art, I would like to study more at a graduate school level abroad," Yoon revealed.
