When we talk about lettering, what comes to mind is the classic Chicano style that dominates a certain kind of tattoo culture, very common on the West Coast of the United States.

In this gallery, you’ll find many examples connected with this important school of tattoo where the writing itself becomes the main subject of a graphic composition. But alongside this, you’ll also see lettering associated with fun imagery, designed as if it were captions to comics, or necessary explanations and footnotes to the visual illustration. It comes in black and white, in a graphic, comic book or colourful style. And above all, like few other themes, lettering is one-off and unique.
