subject: a question/ tatoo
today I met this man, who came to fix my car.
when I saw his arm, tattoed , I did ask him the meaning of the word and he said: this is the name of his son, called: João Victor (something like John Victor in English)
Is he right? I don´t think so....
It is completely gibberish, not even correct with the gibberish font.
Hope everyone had a good Christmas yesterday. According to my Instagram feed... I had a few drinks over the last few days... back to work tomorrow...
Master... using the Godoy Machines - V3 Model
Manuel Isaias Aceves Servin - known officially as: xmasterx, was born in Guadalajara Jalisco, Mexico May 27, 1983. Since he was a kid, he'd always shown great aptitude in drawing... as an adolescent, this art went hand in hand with his playing in a hardcore band and being exposed to heavily tattooed people and the inspiration to learn technique and involve himself in the art.
Through friends, Master met Richi Michel, who at 11 years of tattooing had gained international recognition for his world class tattooing ability. Master bought his first machine right then and there and took a self taught approach for the following 6 months before having job offers and an official apprenticeship from Richi Michel.
In the Richi Tattoo studio he was exposed to the work of Javier Kuatom & Martin Zapo, whose influence helped to direct and to shape Master's career and ability. After 4 years, he operates Blackline Tattoo and travels to national and international conventions entering contests and winning.
We proudly sponsored Master for machines at The Guadalajara tattoo convention where he tied for first place for tattoo of the day. He followed up this win with a few more first places in Mexico City 2 months later! This is a track record that can't be beat...

TRYING TO BRING SCRAPPY TO FUNHOUSE!
Scrappy Uno is DAVID GARCIA, Mexico's premier portrait / black n grey tattoo artist. We have been going to Mexico for conventions for the last 10 years and at most of these conventions, one name keeps winning repeatedly in the black and grey and realism competitions - "Scrappy".
We award a machine to the winner of the best realism events at the conventions we attend and as Scrappy kept on winning year after year, convention after convention, so we decided one day to just hand him the machine because he "would have won anyway".. and he did. Since then he has been sponsored by Godoy Machines.
We are proud to manufacture and promote the "Scrappy" model machine.
FOR LEFT OR RIGHT HANDED TATTOO ARTISTS, THE SCRAPPY MODEL FEATURES:
Scrappy has appeared in several magazines and television programs world wide.
These are only a few of the awards he has won.
Below is a gallery of some of his work. Perfectly even and smooth subtle grey washes require skill and understanding of technique as well as a well tuned machine. The understanding of machine components and function will facilitate this type of trajectory.
HOW DO YOU COMPARE? DO YOU WANT TO REFINE YOUR SKILL? DO YOU WANT UNDERSTAND COMPLETELY HOW TO REACH THIS LEVEL, IN TATTOOING AND IN MACHINE UNDERSTANDING? OR WOULD YOU RATHER RECOGNIZE YOURSELF AS MEDIOCRE... YOU GET BACK WHAT YOU PUT IN.
