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.
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.
My strength, my son, the star, will be my resurrection
Born in correction all the wrong shit I did, he’ll lead a right direction…
Whose world is this? Yo, The world is yours!
One of the best to ever do it.

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.
