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:

Jack Rudy

Freddy Corbin

Eli Quinters

Jason McAfee

Tim Hendricks

Daniel Albrigo

Fernando Lions

Chuco Moreno

UZI

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.

I think chicano tattoos look better done in the traditional style. It really brings out the black and grey work.

The amount of hair that is incorporated in chicano designs also looks better when it is done traditionally.

Even Jack Rudy's tattoos have the bold traditional look.

dont want to go too far OT but i saw some GTC flash I am interested in having tattooed. One is an eagle with a bomb on each side the bombs were red,white,blue with a star. Another interesting piece was two bombs with skulls painted on them FTW surronded the bombs. I dont know protocol on such a situation where could find them on sale? as a non tattooer could I purchase them?

Drew Flores of State of Grace just finished this facemelting Tlaloc:

It is a great tattoo, and I am pretty sure that it is the best use of a belly-button in any tattoo I have ever seen. With the exception of the Popeye tattoo in the book 1000 Tattoos.

    • I guess I was just a bit worried as I don't remember any of my other Tattoos healed this way. Feeling the bumpiness especially after all the peeling got me concerned I guess. I am dry healing it now. Perhaps it was me over moisturizing it but I didn't expect for it to become raised and itchy like it did.   
    • To me this is the most fun part of the process: It sounds like your artist knows what they're doing and has skills.    You sound like you've got some ideas on what direction to take things, but nothing super specific yet. What I do (the fun part) is come up with a list of wants:  "It needs to have a woman, and I want it to be a portrait or full body or whatever",  "I want her to be sitting/standing/holding something".  And then things I don't want: "I don't want her to appear angry/happy/smiling", "I don't want her to be in a forest" Usually you can draw a lot of inspiration by looking up other tattoos, and including the things you like/dislike about them into your own ideas.  Trim the lists down to something reasonable for your artist, and then let them implement it in a way they think is best. It's usually a total surprise until you get to the studio, but if you did a good job defining what you want, the artist should encompass a good portion of it in their own style in a way that they know will work.  Showing up day of and seeing what they've come up with is the best part.
    • You got me wrong actually. He didn't mean that he doesn't want to tattoo what do I want. As long as I said "Woman portrait" he joked about the one with the head dress but I never wanted it LOL. It was a mistake by me writing down that sentence in that way, I apologize for that (my english is not good so yeah, here we go.).  Thank you about the 10 posts.
