Im a tattooer fron Antigua Guatemala, central America, i've been tattooing since '98, Tattooing in the middle of third world chaos, true. When i start to think about tattoos was in the beggining of the '90, wizards, winged dragons and tribals, thank u Mr Zuleta. So in that time i got my first home made scratch tattoo in my arm, in the kitchen friend house, in the time was only one shop for tattoos with only one tattooer working in that time, i got my second tattoo there, was maybe '93. So time after that i met this tattooer from canada James Collier who came with his partner Michael Elias, who was the guy who teach Uncle Allan, years later. Well when i was hang out with this guys i didnt thought about tattooing, was time before James gave me a machine, an old Mickey shapz. So years later they left and michael went to Daenmark and james back to canada. So i was here in my house with a tattoo machine... i can start to make a small ones i thought .. and indeed i made few on my friends, why buy pig meat if u have friends, lol. I rent a small apartment cause i wanted to move from my parents, and i used one room for the tattoo thing, then one day i leave the door open, and one day i have to open one room only for tattooing, next days i have to use the half of my apt for tattooing, we had a small tattoo shop there. Time later was the second expo tattoo in the city, guatemala. i met there Hiram Cordero from Costa Rica, who was the apprentice of Tony Morell MOra, a guy from panama who lives in Maryland area, jinks proof shop etc. I moved to costa rica in that time to learn more with Hiram Cordero, time there then came back to antigua guatemala, work few years more and i met Art Escobar in front of my shop, a guatemala guy who grow and raise in Maryland baltimore. we became friends and biz partners couple of times. In the last years i've been traveling to 7 countries in America and 6 countries in Europe, always tattooing. So this is the Hello and small resume who i am, a tattooer. SALUD!!!!

    • Yeah, try and keep it covered - at 3 days old you don't want to get it dragging through someone else's dance floor sweat. 
    • so I had to jump in here,jail house tattoos rarely have color in them and they are rarely "american traditional", whether you like it or not,a well applied "american traditional" tattoo will outlast pretty much ANY other style around. and second,that reference of tribal you posted was not a quality tattoo at all IMO,it's a mess IMO,there is no good color saturation,not a good design, and the middle band is scratcher shit  for sure, and yes,it's outdated trendy crap IMO. it doesn't make me "low class" or a snob to critique a tattoo,no matter what style it is,it's just my opinion.
    • Once again just to further my point on the above. What we have here is a tribal freehand custom tattoo. It has made its way on to this topic of worst tattoos due to someone disliking the style .... It has however been executed professionally.  I find that irritating, we all have our own personal tastes, I for example hate American traditional, even though I think they look like jail house convict tattoos if one was done well I wouldn't describe it as shit. Tattoo snobbery is low class. Tribal gets a bad rep but people fail to realise that 20 years ago they were bad ass. Guys, your cool tatts that you have today are going to look shite in 20 years time. Just like this tribal they all have an expiry date were they become outdated, and you'll have guys twenty years younger shaking their heads and smirking at your crap work (in their opinion). But if the tattoo is done well then it will be their just their cocky young minds getting the best of them. Peace out....but hey it's only skin at the end of the day.
