I'd like to start a chicano style tattoo threat. The style is a favorite of mine. It also translates well into traditional style tattooing.
I'd like to know which tattooers are highly influenced by this style, as I'd like to get more work done.
Some of my favorite chicano style tattooers are:
Here are some of my tattoos. Based off of Teen Angels Magazines.
Charlie and Jack pretty much pioneered the style ,in a shop, that is. I worked for GTC for almost 10 yrs. I would have to say those tattoos are nice,but, done in a very traditional style. We used single needles for yrs, but I never touch em nowdays. much of the premades are plenty tight enough. you left out a lot of important cats, Freddy Negrete, Flame, Mike Brown,GTC, These are some of the founding fathers.
theres gonna be a film and book coming out soon ,on this subject. Charlie calls them '' 2 crackers in Beantown'' but thats not the real title. the movie is about Chican Art with GTC,Jack Rudy,Negrete,Cheech Marin and Danny Trejo, Im told. the book is pretty much Charlies story and is supposed to be available thru Henk.
