Angel, Sinner and Lazz

Photographer's Name: 
Jonathan May

A portrait from the Desert Ink series. Desert Ink is a tale of 8 Mexican tattoo artists from the wrong side of the tracks, who following their love of art and tattooing found the will to change. With identities forged in street furnaces of gang banging, shoot outs, drug dealing and jail time, this band of men crafters new identities, forming a new type of gang, united by art and their determination to earn a decent living, rising from the trappings of their nefarious past lives. A lot of their brothers are either still doing time, or 6 feet underground.
