For the the last 6 years I’ve had the pleasure to work with my good friend Klown I watched him grow as an artist step by step it almost seems like yesterday that I meet him and I still have the same love and respect I did at the start the only thing that has change its his amazing skills he has developed through hard work and dedication. Its hard to stand out these days, there are so many artist out ther working hard but Klown has manage to come out on top and dayammmm he makes it look so easy. His good attitude towards life and his charisma only adds to his attributes.
I can honestly say that Im very fortunate to have this amazing guys as my friends, they really inspire me and make me very proud.

To what lenght do we go for something that we are extremely passionate about? Well, most of us that want something bad, we strive through anything…blood, sweat and tears. In this case, Klown was back at the shop to do yet another tremendous tattoo. After going strong for over ten hours, Klown’s client powered through without complaint, even when there was a power outage in the entire block for the last half hour of tattoo. In order to finish up, we referred to a rather unorthodox method. We opened up the doors to the shop and drove Gustavo Lopez’s car inside in order to run it as a generator for Klown’s equipment because there was no sign of quitting from Klown nor his client. It was quite a night.
Even with a limited amount of lighting, Klown did what he does best.
Although the power was out, everyone hung around like any other day. We enjoyed each other’s company eventhough it was a little hard to see inside the shop.
Shout out to the homie Shorty.

He’s been drawing since he could pick up a pencil but really started dedicating his full time and effort for the last 5 years. He’s been learnings from Klown for the last year and has no plans to stop. Here is some of his pencil drawings for you to admire.
