JOAN SEBASTIAN TATTOO

JOAN_SEBASTIAN-PORTRAIT

Joan Sebastian tattoo by Fernie Andrade. 

This memorial tattoo of Joan Sebastian was done by Las Vegas tattoo artist, Mr. Andrade. Mr. Sebastian was the fabled Mexican singer/songwriter who rose from the ranks of a poverty-stricken childhood in Mexico, and became one of the most recorded, acclaimed and best selling acts in Mexico.

Aside from being a musician, Joan Sebastian was an accomplished producer, actor on both television and film but set all those aside and he was known as being one of the best entertainers of our time. Some of his accomplishments include insane Billboard charts, up until his passing.

He charted 10 top 10 sets on Top Latin Albums, including two No. 1s: En Vivo: Desde La Plaza El Progreso De Guadalajara (2001) and 13 Celebrando El 13 (2013), his last studio album.

IT NEVER FELT SO GOOD TO BE A REJECT.

In what can easily be described as the best combination of music and movie, the ending of Rob Zombie’s “The Devil’s Rejects” is simply epic. In combination with Lynyrd Skynyrd’s song, “Free Bird” this scene is simply powerful and emotional. If you haven’t seen it then sit back, feel it and appreciate it because it’s sure to move.

Of course we all wished they would have gotten away but that’s a whole other discussion. Released as a single in November 1974, “Free Bird” bowed at #87 on the Hot 100 on the 23rd and became the band’s second Top 40 hit in early 1975, where it peaked at No. 19. A live version of the song also reached the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1977, peaking at No. 38.”Free Bird” also achieved the No. 3 spot on Guitar World’s 100 Greatest Guitar Solos.

It is used as a finale by Lynyrd Skynyrd during their live performances and is their longest song, often going well over 14 minutes when played live.It is considered to be Lynyrd Skynyrd’s signature song.

Here’s a tattoo that was done by resident artist Fernie Andrade. The tattoo was done to pay homage to the movie character Captain Spaulding.

 

FOLDING PAPER.

Who doesn’t love a good George Washington tattoo? Not only was good ol’ Mr. Washington, the very first President of the United States, but he also became the poster boy for trust, unity and wealth. Lately he’s also become the new face and icon of #MCM (Man Crush Monday)  for men and women all over the world and why not? Here’s a tattoo that our resident artist Fernie Andrade busted out last week.

It’s interesting to note that the face we’ve connected to wealth is also the face of the former President who also had his own financial woes. Here’s some little know facts about George Washington:

– George Washington had to borrow money to relocate and attend his own inauguration.

– George Washington never went to college.

– Mr. Washington had to borrow money more than once during his Presidency as most of his money was tied up in land holdings.
