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.
