Tattoo Tuesday: El Whyner

Whyner is a self-confessed sleep avoidant globe-trotting tattooer hailing out of Arizona.  Deeply immersed in lowrider culture, his work has all the hallmarks of the black and grey stylings associated with the scene, and with American Chicano artwork and tattooing.

Clean, precise, and readable, he takes things a step towards the illustrative end, embedding his own flavor in his approach to rendering.  His lettering is impeccable, his tonal control is top shelf. 

Also one of the coolest guys you could ever hope to meet, we count ourselves fortunate to call him a friend.  Check out his lowrider site www.inthestreetsmagazine.com, and follow his worldwide adventures on Instagram @el_whyner.
