A long time ago a lil kid came to my shop asking for direction and a chance to sit down and talk to me about tattoos…. He asked a lot of questions and I answer them to the best of my knowledge…This went on for a while and time after time he would come back to talk some more until I ask him if he really wanted to learn a lil more he could come with me and really jump in the water and get his feet wet, I assure him it would not be easy but he welcomed the challenge and he started working with me, going to all the places I was going to. I remember him always standing right next to me always watching me, with almost no expression on his face just intaking all the information in front of him.
This kid was like no other he did not have a care for anything but learning how to tattoo, it was almost weird that he did take interest in other things other guys were doing and he would never leave my side. I remember a time when we went to one of the first tattoo Conventions out of state and it just happened to be his birthday,lol. I though it be a good idea to get him drunk but actually it was a bad one… We found that out the next day, not only him but all of us had to worst headache ever. My pocket was full of money cause we were gambling and drinking patron and aparently I won all the money that night. I didn’t remember anything. The worst part is that we still had to tattoo that weekend and that didn’t stop us we were there to tattoo and thats what we did. Now that I look back and remember so many moments its seems like it was yesterday. Only that lil kid has grown to become a man, a man that I’m very proud of, His name in Jun Cha. His is on his way to make his own mark in the tattoo world and he still come around all the time to check on us and help out at the studio. Nothing has change he is and will alway be family. I’m writing this because another kid has stepped in to the shop just like Jun did 6 years ago with the same determination. So I could not stand there and do nothing, I welcomed him into the shop just like jun for I saw the same potential and the same drive. It is funny how life and history repeats it self.
He goes by the name of Noah a young artist from Santa Rosa CA, He left everything behind just to pursue his passion for tattoos. And just like Jun he went ahead and enlisted him self in the Art Center Of Pasadena. I really think there’s a lot of very good things that are going to come out of this kid for I have seen it in another, Jun.
With only a few years of Tattooing he is already a master of Hand Script and many other types of tattooing.
With the skills he will be learning in school and at the shop I’m sure he will become a great tattooist.
I really hope that he takes advantage of everything in front of him just like Jun did. Now I’m going to have two guys around me looking over my shoulder,lol.
Thats has never been a problem with me they are my kids, and most importantly they are my friends.
With this new year comes Noah he will be a great asset to Lowrider Tattoo and a great complement to All the other tattooist at the shop like Johnny Opina, Miguel, Gustavo and another great artists sam and lil b.
I’m Proud of all of them And would like to wish them all the best in everything they do.
Lowrider Tattoo started with a dream with one man sitting in a wheelchair wondering what would become of him… He never imagine what would unfold in the coming years. Just when it seemed like it was over, a bright light shined down on him and showed him the path that he is now following, Tattooing.
I’m very fortunate to have such big family and I’m really happy to add Noah as a new member of the Lowrider tattoo Family. Come check him out and find out what I’m talking about, he has lots of talents just waiting to be explored.

We must not force events, but rather make the heart soil ready for their coming, as the earth spreads carpets for the feet of Spring, or, with the strengthening tonic of the frost, Prepares for Winter. Should a July noon burst suddenly upon a frozen world small joy would follow, even tho’ that world were longing for the Summer. Should the sting of sharp December pierce the heart of June, What death and devastation would ensue! All things are planned. The most majestic sphere that whirls through space is governed and controlled by supreme law, as is the blade of grass which through the bursting bosom of the earth creeps up to kiss the light. Poor puny man alone doth strive and battle with the force which rules all lives and worlds, and he alone demands effect before producing cause.
How vain the hope! We harvest joy until we sow the seed, and god alone knows when that seed has ripened. Oft we stand and watch the ground with anxious brooding eyes complaining of the slow unfruitful yield, Not knowing that the shadow of ourselves keeps off the sunlight and delays result. sometimes our fierce impatience of desire don’t like a sultry May force tender shoots of half-formed pleasures and unshaped events to ripen prematurely; or we rot the germs with briny tears ere they heave time to grow. While stars are born and mighty planets die and hissing comets scorch the brow of space the Universe keeps its eternal calm. Through patient preparation, year on year, The Earth endures the travail of the Spring and Winter’s desolation. So our souls in grand submission to a higher law should move serene through all the ills of life, Believing them masked joys.
So sound the trumpets and let the lions roar for we are victorious for now. Just remember to be great full for what we have now
For Victory is not forever! Only ruins will remain if we are lucky but our legacy will last forever!

They say that the more we do today, the less we have to do tomorrow, thats true but it comes with a price. This blog is dedicated to my princess back at home holding it down along with with my Queen while we make it happen across the world. For every good man there is always a better woman, in my case theres two. Time flies but not without leaving unforgettable memories.
While in New York I manage to spend some time with my princess, thats something that I dont get to do as much as I want, she knows that no matter where Im at she is always on my mind.
As i look into the future I only wonder where will I be tomorrow, and I only hope that those I love will be right beside me
The reason why I work so hard, My beautiful daughter! My pride and joy and while she grows up and becomes a woman, Others are barely starting this amazing cycle.
Our boy Nathan Another proud father getting his daughter inked on his arm for life.
This is dedicated to all the proud fathers in the world. And now a moment of silence.

“Let off the throttle, let them win”
Its been a long wonderful year full of so many good times and were not done yet……We are going back and forth, from one airport to another to fulfill our dreams. We put our selfs aside to be able to please others and in the process we get lots of satisfaction.
There are so many encounters with so many different people, and its always the same it all starts with a greet and and always ends with a goodbye……. But not without a unforgettable connection being made , for we give our best and a lil bit of us always stays behind. But only for a while.
For there is always another day and for that we give thanks to the lord above. We take this opportunity to also thank those above and those who are still here with us.
Until our day comes we shall endure the pain and struggles it takes to get to the top of the mountain that many are still searching for. And never forget those who have looked over their shoulders just to give us a chance.
I dont have enough hands and fingers to count such people that have put their lives aside just to give me the opportunity to make my dreams come true.
