    The future is fuckin terrifying, the idea of the unknown is something that haunts the thoughts of countless who meditate on the subject, myself included. But in the infinite number of paths and doors both our own and the other conscious vessels there’s a horror show of beauty, pain and knowledge waiting to be acquired.


    No mystic we seek in the world can come to a conclusion, even with a glimpse through the eye hole, just suggest the best wisdom they have available. I love it. The future is a never ending learning process and it’s forever changing. Even when you feel you’ve come to know it, other factors are introduced and your spiral back to the terror that is square one.  All the knowledge you’ve gained from the past seems to evolve with every second your mind processes more information, so in a sense the future is humbling cause it reminds us about how little we actually know and how far we are willing to push ourselves to continue.


    My future so far is nothing I thought it would be and I’m nowhere I thought I would. But the places I’ve been and experiences I’ve had have all been fucking amazing. But the steps i’m taking now have me pacing like a maniac thinking of where I’ll be headed next…


    Meditate on whats happened, whats coming and what to do to get there. Don’t dwell on past mistakes, embrace the ones coming. Fuck the mystics that tell you your path is set and who you are, you are who you make yourself.

    The art of tattooing is very difficult to understand, just when you think you have it all figured out you are faced with different circumstances.  Different skin means different canvas, different types of surfaces makes you rethink your approach.  On some people results come out almost instantly redness and swelling are very little and on the other hand on some people it is almost impossible to get the desirable outcome until after several sessions.  Then finally the tattoo is completed….It is very important for the client to understand how crucial the healing process is, If a person does not take care of his finished tattoo properly then extended healing time might be experienced also loss of ink on areas of the tattoo specially the areas worked more extensibly.  This is why both the artist and the client must work together and understand what the best approachs are both before and after the tattoo is completed.  On some cases the tattoo process requires multiple session, this is not a bad thing at all,  this provides more time to go over areas that did heal good and it gives the artist more time to build on what was previously done.  At the end the finished product is magnificent.  The depth and shade separation is very clear the darks are deep and the grays specially the light ones are so soft that is make the tattoo look as if had been drawn with pencils on the skin.


    This is an example of what Im talking about my client Jaime Lopez a good friend of the Lowrider Tattoo Family has been at the shop several times working on different pieces.  This last one however we took a different approach the piece was so detailed that we wore forced to take it in small steps.  At first Jaime was not so thrill having to come back twice and still not being done, the white is still not finished but we learned one thing good things come to those who wait.  He is so amazed with his piece that we are already planning the back part of his arm.  I hope this can bring some insight to all of you planning on get a new piece.  Wether you are thinking on coming to our studio or to other artists, take your time and encourage your artist to do the same don”t rush things and I guaranty you will get the best results possible.


    “…there was war in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven.”


    I look forward to working with you out there who ever you are, if you are looking for a piece or if you just want to talk about a piece were here to serve you please fell free to stop by for a consultation or to set up an appointment.

    It all started years back when  I meet a really good friend who till this day is one of my best friends even though we dont see each other as much.   About  11 years ago I meet Klown, back then we were just a couple guys trying to make it in the Tattoo game.  We would see each other in shows here and there then I was presented with a huge opportunity to travel outside my comfort zone.  Thats when all this traveling started for me, one day I asked Klown if he wanted to travel with me and he said yes…this started and strengthen our friendship we had some good times with the rest of our boys, we taught each other support, respect but most important loyalty which till this day we still have for each other.  Years later History would repeat it self only this time Klown would share all this with another good friend of the family, Pablo Aponte.  They travel together just like me and him did and Im sure they shared some similar moments.  Klown has never changed even though he has gain great admiration from the Tattoo industry he remains a humble individual and strives to get better and not only for him but also to teach others like Pablo.  Klown has spent alot of time with Pablo sharing everything he knows he does not hold nothing back and you can really see it in Pablos work, he is a true student and a recipient of years of experience from a humble teacher who Im very proud to be friends with.

    Im very exited to have have Pablo as an artist at Lowrider tattoo He is very eager to learn and Im sure he will bring a lot inspiration to all of us.  Pablo really takes pride in his work , Im sure you all will agree with me.  Here  is some of his work it is truly amazing.


    Berninis St. Longinus, Christian legend has it that Longinus was a blind Roman centurion who thrust the spear into Christ’s side at the crucifixion. Some of Jesus’s blood fell upon his eyes and he was healed. Upon this miracle Longinus believed in Jesus.

    This specific study is a very difficult piece to pull off but Pablo has done a great job of showing his skills.


    The famous rose that has given Klown so much fame and here it shows how he has passed it on to Pablo.


    What ever style it might be he has so many different ways of capturing a true artistic essence and giving each piece of art his own twist.

    I am proud to announce he will be coming with us to Rome to contribute to the already famous tattoo Convention and to work side by side with the rest of us.


    Feel free to drop Pablo an email at Patattoos@gmail.com for appointments for this upcoming Show In Rome.

    I would like to thank you all for tuning in and to apologize for the lack of activity,  we are going trough some structure changes but there is a lot to come in the next months so please stand by for whats to come.  Once again thank you for the love and support

    Your friend and artist Jose Lopez

    It’s 2012, going on 2013 and thanks to a simple Google search, I am transported back to an earlier period of my career.  The foundation to what I have become suddenly appeared before my eyes. Now I share them with the rest of you-The early works that were featured on Lowrider Arte.
