Alain Gomez is a tattoo artist from Los Angeles, California. He lays down his ink at the Beautiful Truth Tattoo shop in the heart of Downtown L.A. Gomez draws inspiration from a variety of sources, whether it’s classic American tattoos or his Mexican roots. When he’s not hooking someone up with a sleeve or an intricate back piece, you can find Gomez trekking across L.A. on his bicycle.
Deep in East L.A. is City Terrace, California. This is where you find La Mina, a social arts collective that cumbia group La Chamba calls home. They get inspiration from their hood to write psychedelic licks for this Peruvian-inspired style of music.
