Richard.

A huge thank you to everyone inquiring for the upcoming year, here’s a look at Richard’s Madonna on the arm, coming all the way down from Ontario. I tried to pay attention to all the details of this piece, it was a great session, thanks for pulling through brother.

Day Of The Dead.

A look through my camera lens of DownTown Santa Ana’s Noche De Altares Festival.

I would love to begin by introducing this mexican holiday to all outsiders- Dia De Los Muertos, a public holiday that focuses on gatherings of family & friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have passed. A primarily Roman-Catholic tradition, but has now been observed worldwide.

The Catrina has become the referential image of Death in Mexico, it is common to see her embodied as part of the celebrations of Day of the Dead throughout the nation.

It was definitely an amazing day capturing and witnessing all the altars and offerings and most of all-the people who came out to take part in the heritage fiesta.

Andrick.

This week I had the opportunity to tattoo a rising star in the tattoo game – Andrick Aviles. This young individual is always taking it to new heights with his fineline black & grey art, very privileged to add to his collection.

He is also a genuinely good person with an awesome background, honored to call him my friend.

Method.

Many opportunities can be right in front of you, but they can still be obscure.

Many plans and much activity in the studio – studying and  interpreting.

Analyzing hair and its actions, learning anatomy, trying to keep the momentum.

New Life.

A personal day for my childhood friend Manuel, for his newest addition to the Hernandez family, his little girl Minerva.

I haven’t gotten a chance to do some custom lettering as of late, so here’s my freehand take on her unique name, taken from the alternative rock band Deftones song.

Mamma.

Yesterday’s session on Ivan, for his dedication piece for both his grandmothers. The Mamma’s always having unconditional love and care for all of us.

On my part, I am the first grandson so I am very close to my mamma, glad to hear others stories and how they feel the same.
