After finding out that the living legend himself, Leo Zulueta is living and working about two hours from me, I’ve been obsessively looking at his tattoos. These leg pieces in particular have been blowing my mind.
Of course tribal tattooing, as the world knows it is lame. But Leo Zulueta is the man who made tribal popular, as true aficionados know. (All due respect to Thom deVita) Zulueta is the modern father of the true tribal.
Much like all things, something that started out really cool, was corrupted by the mainstream. I just need to get a quick leg piece next year from Mr. Zulueta. All these legends are dying off or no longer tattooing.
