There have been a lot of new things here at the shop that make our gift giving a little simpler. From our newly designed gift certificate to our new shirt designs. Now, presenting to you, the new Jose Lopez prints available at the Fountain Valley Lowrider Tattoo shop.
Hurry in and pick up the pair. It’s a great gift for a birthday and it’s never too early to pick one up for Valentine’s Day. Don’t wait until they are all gone, come in and take a piece of Lowrider Tattoo home with you.

Octavio Ocampo was born on 28 February 1943 in Celaya, Guanajuato, Mexico. He grew up in a family of designers, and studied art from early childhood. At art school, Ocampo constructed papier mache figures for floats, altars, and ornaments that were used during carnival parades and other festivals. In high school, Ocampo painted murals for the Preparatory School and the City Hall of Celaya. Ruth Rivera, daughter of artist and muralist Diego Rivera, and Maria Luisa Mendoza encouraged him to attend the School of Painting and Sculpture of the National Fine Art Institute…
Octavio Ocampo is one of Mexico’s most prolific artists.
Ocampo is known for several works in his sometimes wryly sardonic, sometimes evocative paintings in which detailed images are intricately woven together to create larger images – the optical illusions fading back and stepping forward as you study the pieces, notice the details, and finally recognize the large scale intention. This is what Octavio Ocampo terms his “metamorphic” style.

Starting the week right, crusing down the streets of downtown London in a Lambo is really not a bad start…
Minutes into our arrival our friend Robbie had Lowrider Tattoo under his radar, with several attempts to step into the chair the session was finalized. With the angelic image of his two year old son in hand, Jose was able to stretch out his talent. Robbie left thankful and blindsided, never leaving sight of his forearm.
With life comes death, even the most prestige can be tainted with heartache. Here is a memorial for Princess Diana and Dodi al Fayed, inside the world famous Harrods.
Just a glimse over the shoulder and you’ll spot this once living piece of organism that lived over 30,000,000 years ago.
And just another glimpse over your other shoulder and you’ll spot Danger pulling his pants down. Watch out, he’s waiting for you to help him pull them back up. Everywhere we go Danger just can’t help it, when he has an itch he scratches.
“All play and no work make Jose a dull boy” more pics more footage and more tattoos to come…
