The current trend for tattoos today is Chicano style. Today it is not only a popular, but still the youngest direction. However, even despite this, it can be very easily distinguished from other styles, which is its main advantage.
Chicano has a rather interesting story. The main fact is that it is literally impossible to translate this name, but many people thought that this word has some similarity with the definition of «Mexican», meaning «American hunters». Initially, as is known, this style was very popular among Latin American attack groups. After a short period of time, Chicano was no longer a designation, but became a trend among a large number of people.
This style is not just a drawing. The people who put it underline a rather deep meaning, meaning the futility of existence and not accepting the concept of honesty. That is why the image of Chicano many associated with something bad and ominous.
