The evolution and impact of tattooing can be traced throughout human history, from the ancient civilizations, to the underworld of Japan, to the first American sailors and all cultures around the globe. A tradition of expression through a creative process with permanence has carried through to our identity in this contemporary, yet timeless form of art.
Lowrider Tattoo Studios embodies this same tradition, rooted in the black and grey fine line style. Spawned from the streets and prisons of California as the foundation, it has been refined and perfected between the collaborative relationship of the artist and client of today. Founder Jose Lopez utilized this concept and technique in mastering this craft that started a journey over 20 years ago, which has since been passed on through the generations in and beyond the industry of tattooing.
Recognized internationally as one of the greatest tattoo shops in the world, Lowrider Tattoo Studios has made its mark in elevating today’s tattoo experience. It has earned over 150 awards worldwide and is continuing to excel beyond the standard of quality, transforming the stigma of tattoo into a true global art movement that is reflected in all social structures of our society. It is through our clients and collectors from all walks of life: past, present and future, that we continue to witness the evolution of a dream that is taking tattooing to new heights.
