Mr. Cartoon

Chicano culture, gang culture, prison tattoos, California lifestyle, East L.A. These all come to mind when I think of the great tattoo artist, Mr. Cartoon. Growing up in Los Angeles and being surrounded by graffiti and street culture, Cartoon realized he had an artistic ability and would start out airbrushing t-shirts and Lowriders before embracing his signature “Fineline Style” of tattoo art. It was art that kept Cartoon out of trouble in the streets and helped to turn his art into a full-fledged career. Mr. Cartoon has dabbled in various mediums from graffiti to magazine illustrations. His previous experience with multiple mediums of art finally landed him as a world famous tattoo artist. His work is showcased on various Hip-Hop artists bodies as much more then just a tattoo, but rather a piece of permanent art that captures Cartoons Chicano/Prison/L.A. influences. He even did Cypress Hill’s logo and has done multiple high-profile collaborations with industry giants such as NIKE, TOYOTA, and T-Mobile among many others. Mr. Cartoon’s long and impressive career/journey is impeccable and truly a great source of inspiration in my life as well as other artistic individuals around the world. Pay attention and learn from the best, only then will you be able to fully succeed.
