This is Chicano Life
Trought the portrait of men, Chicano Life traces the history of hispanic tattooing in Los Angeles. Wether they be rappers, tattoo artists, barbers, actors or gang members their inked skins describe their history, their pain, depict their religions or the love they have for their family. Pre-Columbian history relics, letterings of their neighborhood names drawn by shooting scars, these traditionals tattoos represent the realness of the chicano culture.
