This has been the best year for the Lowrider Tattoo brand.  We have acquired a seat at the Throne, and with so much goodness comes lots of  responsibilities.  We thank everybody for helping and supporting us all over the world, every time you tune in to our Facebook, website, or Instagram you fuel our souls and give us the energy to keep fighting day after day. There is so much in the works for the next couple of years including the new Lowrider Tattoo London Studio Opening January 2014.  A wise man once told me “don’t be afraid, be ready”  and that we are.



With that said I would like to thank every one that came to support us in New York We had a tremendous time full of laughs.  Our boy Jake Whank and the whole Whank Team showed up with a strong presence.  His whole team got tattooed by  all of the Lowrider Tattoo Camp.



A man with a vision, a man going against the current believing not only in himself  but in his whole team made up of  friends who are also sacrificing so much for what they believe in.  All of us at Lowrider Tattoo wish you the best, this wont be the last time we see each other.  We’ll see you again  in Atlantic City soon brother.


Our good friend Piero came in early in the week and had a beautiful portrait of a very specific Saint, Padre Pio. Padre Pio was said to have had the gift of reading souls, the ability to bilocate (according to eyewitness accounts), among other supernatural phenomena.[25] The reports of supernatural phenomena surrounding Padre Pio attracted fame and legend. Even the Vatican was initially skeptical.  I enjoyed doing tattoo a lot and spending the day with a good friend made it even better.



One of the longest tattoo sessions on this trip was on our boy Brian Whank, we spent 12 hours tattooing away,  He got a picture posed by his girlfriend dressed in a traditional Vietnamese dress. It was stunning and it has to be seen in person to be appreciated.


Nick borino had just visited us recently at the studio and again had the chance to see us once again.  We finished his chest plate  which by the way looked amazing.  There was so much going on on both floors machines buzzing nonstop. Different conversations going on from all the artist and clients.  Our homie Feliz and his wife went all the way to take care of us and show us the Brooklyn experience the way it is was meant we thank all of you once again.


Polo from Vinnies styles  our good friend for a long time now got the best piece,  a portrait of nelson mandela and Malcolm X.



Out of the night that covers me,
      Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
      For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
      I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
      My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
      Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
      Finds and shall find me unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate,
      How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate,
      I am the captain of my soul.



This is just some of the work done on this trip.

Noah Minuskin, Klown Saravia, Pablo Aponte and myself  all worked endless hours to accomplish all this but the end result is always worth all the effort we put into our work.  I have to say New York showed us a lot of love and we are forever grateful…..We will return but before we do we need to make a stop in London.


Till the next time Merry Christmas!
