Checkin in from Headquarters…
Off to another smooth run here in London. If our plane getting struck by lighting, a 10 hour delay, and a flooded loft couldn’t stop us, nothing could. Besides the early runaround, this trip has proved to be one of the smoothest to date. So much love here from all of Europe, I want to give a special thanks to all of the clients that made the trip out, some returning and some new, but all now a proud part of the Lowrider family. There’s a certain energy in the room when you have a collective group of people all striving towards a common goal. No egos, no one man bigger than the crew, all contributing their own part towards the finish. Its a team that makes the big impacts not the one, and I couldn’t be anymore proud of my team. Im honored to have my brothers Miguel and Jun along my side, never ceasing to inspire, with their relentless work ethic, passion and drive. And of course our commander in chief Jose, whose actions inspire all of us to do more, become more and dream more, who has proved time and again the worht of a true leader. Long days once again turned into long nights, and theres no way we would survive without our right hands, Stevie, Toby and Alex. The late night cups of tea, Nando runs, and motivational ball-breaking was just what we needed to pull through. As I head back to Cali to continue school for the Fall, the brother Jun is now making his way over. Be sure to keep up with boys as they continue to power forward. Also for those who will be in attendance at the London convention, make sure to stop by the booth and say hello. Thanks to all for all of your continued love and support, much more to come! -Noah Minuskin

They say the road to success is a long one, I agree with that I have been working at perfecting my craft for many years and Im still trying to reach success. Whats more important than reaching your goal is all the beautiful moments we have along the way, all the beautiful people we come in contact with, hence the saying “Its not the destination that matters but the journey and every thing we do along the way”. With only 20 years old our friend Nico is already on his way to reaching his goal, with all the support from his parents and every body around him Im sure it will come soon. I believe success runs in his family both Marlene and his father Frank have been very successful, by successful I mean raising two fine young kids Nico and Natasha to be just as genuine as them. I had the pleasure to spent two days with this wonderful family and Im so proud of how they supported each other the whole time Nico was getting tattooed. From the bottom of my heart I wish them all the best and Im confident Nico will make us all proud when he makes it to the major leagues.
After a few minutes of going over what piece we were going to do we decided on the Madonna and child a sculpture by the great Michelangelo, a perfect piece for the chosen area.
We still have some more work to do, but for now we’ll let this heal for a couple of months before we go back into it. Thanks so much to this beautiful family. I enjoy my work very much you just made it more pleasant, from all of us here at Lowrider Tattoo thank you very much and we hope to see you all soon.
ONCE AGAIN THANKS FOR THE LOVE AND SUPPORT

London has to be one of the best spots to visit for me. Despite its fame for bad food and worst weather I got to say it doesn’t matter its still at the top of my list. The people there are super nice and accommodating, as far as the weather is concern… I like a nice jacket. Once you know where to go and the right places to eat forget about it. places like the Mayflower, Gilgemish and the Ivy stake house are my favorites. Not to mention my good friends Dimitri,Lux, Alex and Tobby they all live there not forgetting my boys David, Lee, Summet and my girls Jaky and Loura, I get to see them every time. Time after time they welcome us with the biggest smiles and the warmest affection. I can’t wait to get there to add to the unforgettable memories.
Here’s some more of the latest work I advice you to make your appointment as soon as possible to guaranty your space on these up coming trip. Time is running out and spaces are filling up quick. Once again I thank you all so much and I hope to see you soon.
We are open to all suggestions and we always advice and encourage everybody to get involve to do as much research about the subject you want to get tattooed as well as the artist and the place where you will be getting it. A tattoo is forever therefore you must be very critical when choosing your artist and studio. The more research you do will guaranty the best result and then you can wear your work of art proudly. It is important to find a connection with your artist know what motivates him and let him know what motivates you, only then can the ultimate collabotion be created. With that said I leave you with this inspirational poem,
You’re a finished
Black and white painting
Hung up in my minds eye gallery
I hope it’s not too much trouble
If I add some colour of my own
And let you be your accented self
There was nothing wrong
With you, black and white
But wouldn’t you look lovely in colour
Wouldn’t you look lovely
Having someone else
Paint you in a different light
I’m a black and white painting
In need of your paint
Your shades and hues
We compliment one and other
Each other’s pallets
Each in need of collaboration
YOUR FRIEND AND ARTIST

For the last 12 years we have not only tried but we have succeeded to stay on top and lead the Industry. By constantly evolving and recreating not only our selfs but most important our environment we have manage to stay fresh, green and growing always inspiring one another in the studio. We are almost at the end of the second face of our studio remodeling and we could not wait to share some of the progress with all our supportive followers who we appreciate so much. It has been a little over three years since we opened the new LOWRIDER TATTOO STUDIOS, but in last 6 months we have been working non stop to bring an all new experience to our customers. We spend so much time traveling and gathering so much material and inspiration that we figured it be good to surround our self with just that all the beautiful elements that we love so much. When we are in the road there is so much to see, from the majestic and very elegant pillars to the intricate moldings throughout every inch of the ceilings marble and granite sculpture are always our favorite not forgetting the delicate and stunning oil paintings done by the old masters. I have a dream, a dream in which I live surrounded by all of the elements mentioned above. So my friends Im proud to announce that it is no longer a dream but a reality, we are only months away from accomplishing that dream. I thank all of you that support us here and around the world and I invite you to come and see for your self what you have help to realize.
“What is in the distance is only a blur so we must focus in the beauty thats in fronts of us”
Our good friend David Oropeza has been Laboring non stop collaborating with me and coming out with ideas on how to make our sanctuary the best visually stunning place to work in. I like to thank him for that… He has surpassed my expectations so far.
There are so many changes and to really appreciate them 100 percent you need to come to the studio to get the whole experience. From the minute you walk in the visuals do not disappoint.
I run as fast as I can,
Trying to escape such memories.
Happy and sad alike,
I don’t want them part of me.
Wishing for something more,
Praying for even greater,
My knees are raw
From all the times I’ve fallen.
I pick myself up,
Dust myself off.
But pain is an illusion.
I can get through this.
Strength is a state of mind
Power is the strength of heart.
Love is open
Faith is kind.
My dreams reach Heaven
As my hopes collide.
Crash and burn,
Laughter always does,
Still, I won’t bow.
Not for anyone.
Pride is my arrogance,
And I have plenty.
My tears are unable to fall,
No matter how strongly I wish for them.
I am Hulk.
No, I am Hercules.
Here to unite,
To protect and fight,
And to win.
This isn’t a poem of wishing for forgiveness.
This isn’t a ballad of broken dreams.
This isn’t me asking for anything.
This isn’t me on my knees.
I’ll stay strong,
I’ll stay ‘happy’,
Nothing can hurt me,
So much has happen in my life and to say I have regrets it be to deny all the beautiful people that I have come in contact with. It doesn’t mater if is a long friendship or some one I just meet, a friend or a family member, a client or one that is yet to be I love you all for you all have helped in getting me through all the difficult moments in my life.
Your friend and artist
THANKS FOR THE LOVE AND SUPPORT

As we near the 3rd quarter of the year, so much has been going on over here at the studio. Seeing my artists coming in everyday and pushing our craft has been very fulfilling and inspiring for me. With this growth we have been revamping the Lowrider name as well as the studio. I am soo excited to share these changes with you all very soon as we near completion. For now, I am happy to announce our return to London beginning this upcoming August. The official dates that we will be there will be August 28th – September 31st. Our trip earlier this year was one of the smoothest to date. So much love and support ws shown that we felt the need to return sooner than later. The official line for this years 2nd London campaign will be myself, Jose Lopez alongside Jun Cha, Noah Minuskin, Miguel Ochoa. We project that dates will fill up rather quickly because of the large number of client intake, so we encourage you all to secure your day with your artist as soon as possible. On behalf of myself and the rest of my boys that will be returning with me to England I want to sincerely thank you all for your continued love and support.

Thanks to friends at HypeBeast for visiting us on our recent London trip. Take a look…
“The partners took said iconic style to a pop-up shop in London recently, which saw a massively successful turnout for the two veteran artists and other members of the Lowrider family. Hypebeast got the opportunity to speak with the two while the pop-up shop was occurring, and candidly conversed about their personal history of tattooing, aesthetic influence, and favorite work. For those overseas looking to get inked by one of these artists, Jose will be touring Rome from April 24 – May 14 and Jun will be in Paris from May 6 – 18. Enjoy the video above.” -HypeBeast
