Dating a cholo

He specializes in regional cholo lettering, a Los Angeles nativist tradition with its roots in gang culture dating back to the 1940s.

A few years later he got involved in tattooing at Modern Ink in Westchester and a few others, but he had visions of grandeur and dreamt of something bigger, rather than being stuck within the confines of the tattoo parlor cubicle.

His stature, his grooming habits, his shaved scalp, and the oversized tattoo on the back of his head, a self-portrait with beaming eyes symbolizing he is always watching his back, can be a bit daunting.

However, he is one of the most gregarious, friendly, humble and approachable artists I have ever met.

At the encouragement of his wife, he put together a lettering scrapbook from notebooks, envelopes, and handwritten letters, that came with instructions and was basically a font manual focused on regional lettering to be used at tattoo parlors across California, They put together an idea and shopped it around at the Ink-N-Iron Tattoo Convention, and it was immediately picked up by Wendy Belzel of Belzel Books, which proved more successful than what he imagined as it took off internationally.

    And this stood out, [tweetherder]The most important question you simply need to answer for yourself right now is, ‘What do I want now? You know how some couples, despite after breaking up start getting back together like a million times? oh it’s complicated” or give bullshit like, “It’s true love”. I find that many people subject themselves to more hurt simply because they think retaining a friendship is the moral thing to do. I’m saying open yourself up to other people and the world! They are none other than my good buddies online from the blogosphere and I’m super proud to have them on Alden-Tan Passion on the Real!
