Chicano Tattoo Style

58 posts in this topic

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.

Bert did one of those? Im pretty ignorant .

Add Freddy Negrete to your list of influences holmes,but for a traditional twist I think Bert Krak and Tony Hundahl do good takes .

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 don't think there are a lot of photos of it out there, but I remember seeing some pretty cool stuff that Chris Garver did. Especially the Chola girls, and skulls.

    • Heya all, new to the forums
      Not a tattoo virgin, but am getting my first sleeve next month. I live in Greece, hence my choice of artists is quite limited. I need someone that is very knowledgeable about Japanese traditional/neo-traditional to talk to, to make sure i picked the right artist! I booked two sessions one day after the other, in January.
      Im guessing im not allowed to post artist’s works on here, so whoever can help, pls PM me! Thanks!
    • I'm from Portland, OR. New here! Looking for some inspiration and guidance from this community about some tattoo ideas I've had rolling around my brain for the past 5 years. My first and only tattoos are five tiny hearts (almost freckle sized), and 8 years later I think I've finally thought long enough about my next idea to get the ball rolling. I want to do a half sleeve on my forearm of highly rendered florals (like a graphite pencil drawing). Something really realistic but no color and no hard black outlines. I have a hard time describing what I'm looking for, and as a resut, an even harder time finding examples of it. The only example I've ever seen was years ago on a friend of a friend, which was what sparked my idea in the first place. Does anyone have an artist that sounds like they do work like this, or a piece that fits into this description? Any help pointing the way would be useful! Thanks!!
    • You know, I was just about to post my wisdom tooth story. Around three months ago I had the absolute worst pain I've ever experienced. It felt like my head was in a vice that got tighter every hour. Turned out I had a horizontally impacted lower wisdom tooth that got abscessed. Had it removed, couldn't eat for a week. After it healed, a week later the other one started hurting. Had IT removed, got dry socket (look it up...damn Marlboro reds) couldn't eat for a week and a half. Now that familiar dull pain is starting up again...my surgery's at 9:50 am. Removing the last two at the same time. Thank god it's over. TL;DR Wisdom teeth suck.
