The Gypsy Gentleman – Episode 4: San Diego y Tijuana

It has arrived! Episode 4 of the highly acclaimed documentary series The Gypsy Gentleman is now available to watch online, and as always it’s free of charge.

This episode takes place both in San Diego and in Tijuana, Mexico, with Latino tattooers Bill Canales and Rob Benavides joining host and creator, Marcus Kuhn. They visit a couple of very cool and inspiring places, and discuss the influence of Latino culture on modern tattooing. This whole series is by far the best show about tattooing at the moment, displaying REAL tattooing, as well as teaching us a thing or two about tattoo history and it’s influence on the craft today.

Please share the video everywhere you can, this is a project that truly deserves our support and respect. The next episode is in London, which should be AMAZING!
