It all started years back when I meet a really good friend who till this day is one of my best friends even though we dont see each other as much. About 11 years ago I meet Klown, back then we were just a couple guys trying to make it in the Tattoo game. We would see each other in shows here and there then I was presented with a huge opportunity to travel outside my comfort zone. Thats when all this traveling started for me, one day I asked Klown if he wanted to travel with me and he said yes…this started and strengthen our friendship we had some good times with the rest of our boys, we taught each other support, respect but most important loyalty which till this day we still have for each other. Years later History would repeat it self only this time Klown would share all this with another good friend of the family, Pablo Aponte. They travel together just like me and him did and Im sure they shared some similar moments. Klown has never changed even though he has gain great admiration from the Tattoo industry he remains a humble individual and strives to get better and not only for him but also to teach others like Pablo. Klown has spent alot of time with Pablo sharing everything he knows he does not hold nothing back and you can really see it in Pablos work, he is a true student and a recipient of years of experience from a humble teacher who Im very proud to be friends with.
Im very exited to have have Pablo as an artist at Lowrider tattoo He is very eager to learn and Im sure he will bring a lot inspiration to all of us. Pablo really takes pride in his work , Im sure you all will agree with me. Here is some of his work it is truly amazing.
Berninis St. Longinus, Christian legend has it that Longinus was a blind Roman centurion who thrust the spear into Christ’s side at the crucifixion. Some of Jesus’s blood fell upon his eyes and he was healed. Upon this miracle Longinus believed in Jesus.
This specific study is a very difficult piece to pull off but Pablo has done a great job of showing his skills.
The famous rose that has given Klown so much fame and here it shows how he has passed it on to Pablo.
What ever style it might be he has so many different ways of capturing a true artistic essence and giving each piece of art his own twist.
I am proud to announce he will be coming with us to Rome to contribute to the already famous tattoo Convention and to work side by side with the rest of us.
Feel free to drop Pablo an email at Patattoos@gmail.com for appointments for this upcoming Show In Rome.
I would like to thank you all for tuning in and to apologize for the lack of activity, we are going trough some structure changes but there is a lot to come in the next months so please stand by for whats to come. Once again thank you for the love and support
Your friend and artist Jose Lopez

If you have tried and met with defeat; if you planned and watched your plans as they were crushed before your eyes; just remember that the greatest men in all history were products of courage, and courage, you know, is born in the cradle of adversity.
Born in bordeaux France son of two proud yet lonely parents who together are sacrificing so much just to make their dreams come true. He gets up every day and works as hard as he can every day even though he swims against the strong current of adversity. Even the strongest willed man can feel down at times but he knows the that there is no room for failure there is no going back there is only one option and thats to keep fighting until his dreams and aspiration can become a reality.
Defeat after defeat he tries different ways to deal with it knowing that it is only temporary, always a smile on his face brushing away the comments and slanders that are thrown at him, he doesnt let anything stop him he knows these are just a few of the life lessons he must learn and overcome. He is young but yet full of courage, courage that many would kill for, he is happy, he is sad, he is lonely for he is thousands of miles away from home, he knows yesterday is but a dream, and tomorrow only a vision. But today he will live well and by doing so he will make every yesterday a dream of happiness, and every tomorrow a vision of hope.
His name is Robin Hernandez A 21 year old young man who left everything behind to look for a better life which I’m sure by the way he is searching one day in the not to distant future he is sure to find.

As we look into the future our goals and dreams tend to look like blur, but as we fine tune our minds and look a little closer they seem to take a different shape. This happens all the time….life is very forgiving and willing to give us another chance as long as we are willing to take it.
Where there were once tears of sorrow,
They are no more,
Body and soul, I seek potency within.
Shrouded in darkness, I now find the light,
I must be vigilant as there is always darkness that lingers.
I take a walk down the corridors of time,
Over look what has been, what is now, and what will come to pass,
I must not be afraid,
Where there is fear,
Comfort will come,
Patience is the key.
My body is broken,
Heart bleeds from pain,
My eyes see no more deceit to this world.
I cower no more
I close my eyes,
Release all sorrows inside,
I worry not for I know my heart shall heal in time.
I have self-confidence.
There is a light within,
Seek it beyond my darkness,
If found, I must walk to it,
For there lies a door beyond.
If I believe once more,
The door will open,
I wish to find redemption.
Forgiveness and help will come to me if only I ask.
Behind the door lies a pool,
If I trust than will I bathe in its waters.
I leave behind all misfortunes,
I shall be reborn.
All is forgiven,
I appreciate this second chance.
Time is what I have.
I know I am loved,
I am free,
This is me,
This is the story of my rebirth.
And suddenly all things become clearer, things begin to make sence. It is like a rebirth free from all worries a fresh start, a new year, A new year that will bring all goods things because we have worked so hard for them giving and sacrificing so much just to be here. I thank every body that has helped us along the way not only me but my whole team. They are all doing an amazing job here at the studio, when ever I feel down all I need to do is go back and look at this blog and see how far my boys have come.
Every day thats goes by we grow as a team and we support one another and just like the ancient chinesse philosphies teach us, One stick is easy to break but when you join several of them together it is hard to do so. We know it wont be easy but we keep working hard and we face our demons every day battling them time after time unafraid and only more confident ever time.
Here are some of the works the boys at the shop have been doing, onece again it is amazing how far they have come Im extreamly proud of all of them. Im sure you will also be delighted with their work.
“Victory belongs to the most persevering.”
