Chicano... Try the taste of this word with your tongue. It is a warm wind of Brazil, it is a cactus from Mexico, it is a hot sun of Costa Rica. This word has the smell of Latin slums and prisons.

Now you need not to be the part of the criminal gang to wear a chicano tattoo. But in the beginning of this style only gangsters did tattoos in this style. The main meaning of the chicano tattoos is the futility of all human beings and the supreme justice. Nowadays it is one of the most famous tattoo style. Chicano keeps the darkness and drama as the major characteristics of the style. The main colors are black and grey, the others are not used so often. One of the most popular sketches for chicano tattoo is a face of a young attractive girl with a black nose and black eyes, which look like a skull.
