Latino Art Collection
Tattoo-Inspired Chicano, Maya, Aztec and Mexican Styles

Edgar Hoill, the co-author of the much-praised tattoo trilogy “Black & Grey Tattoo 1-3,” presents the ”Latino Art Collection – Tattoo Inspired Chicano, Maya, Aztec and Mexican Styles” a globally unique compilation of motifs from the ambiance of Latin American culture. This lavishly illustrated large-format volume features the work of artists and tattooists who rank among the best that the scene has to offer. They come from the Chicano scene in Los Angeles and elsewhere in California, as well as from Mexico and Europe.

Their sketches and pictures are an impressive compendium and source of inspiration, a captivating mixture of Chicano styles, inspired by Aztec imagery and Mayan art, along with contemporary Mexican motifs that have never before been shown in this way. This weighty photo book is the ideal work for tattooists who are searching for new visual inspirations and ideas. Creative individuals from the genres of art, fashion and design will likewise find diverse and stimulating ideas and inspiration here. Life and death are the leitmotifs of these powerful Latino-inspired pictorial creations: art from Mi Vida Loca (My Crazy Life) to the Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), plus lowriders and religious iconography.
