Tattoos! Dos Changos Locos Tattoo. Write for us!

Tattoos! Dos Changos Locos Tattoo. Write for us!

Tattoos are what we do, and it is the lifestyle we live. Dos Changos Locos Tattoo is not full of rock-stars, prima donnas, or snotty rude artists.  We are artists that love the tattoo art and love creating art.  We create solid tattoo art that our clients love, and here as of late our website has been getting more and more attention.  A big thank you goes out to our 3,000 plus subscribers (growing daily), and to all of our friends and clients. We endeavor to produce a useful website devoted to the tattoo lifestyle and tattoo art.  So we invite you to write for us.

Our clients range from the everyday hard-working blue-collar client all the way to the professional white-collar worker.  We work on mechanics, law enforcement, fire department, teachers, doctors, CEOs and attorneys. Not everyone wants people to know their business or job, so we always keep your interests private for obvious reasons.  This is a wonderful time for the tattoo art scene.  It is much more accepted.  Whether or not that is good is up for debate and I am sure everyone has their opinion.

It is because of this acceptance that we produce this website.  We strive to inform the tattoo community and the community at large that the tattoo scene is out of the dark recesses of the backroom.  We are not the bastard child of fine art, in fact, tattooing has become a fine art all on its own.  There are artists in the industry that are producing jaw-dropping tattoo work that would rival those master pieces hanging in galleries world-wide.  We must be doing a fair job of informing as our articles are showing up in many different media outlets.

So here is my invitation. Would you like to suggest a topic or even write an article for us?  The work remains yours and all rights remain yours.  We do not pay, but we will be happy to give you a platform to express yourself.  We will also be happy to write about topics that are important to you the tattoo enthusiast.

Do you want a body piercing? Afraid of getting it done?

Piercings are part of Troy “Bone’s” daily routine.  Troy is quick and gives you lots of information to help you relax.  Your piercing becomes something that is fun instead of scary.  Troy is very patient and will help you relax and enjoy your experience of being pierced.  We think all piercings should be this easy.

We can help you with all of your tattoo needs.  All of our artists are experienced tattoo artists that excel at what they do.  Please check our tattoo portfolios.  You should check the portfolios of every artist that you consider getting tattoo from.   There is a reason that you found us online.  We are highly recommended by our clients.  We get lots of traffic because we provide high quality art in Modesto.  We design custom tattoo designs daily.  We do have tattoo flash designs available in the tattoo studio if you prefer that type of design.  Tattoos that come from tattoo flash designs can usually be applied that day if we have an opening.  You can usually get tattooed quicker if it is from a tattoo flash design because the design is ready to be made into a stencil and be applied.

Custom tattoo designs generally take time to draw.  Depending on the design and how complex the design is will depend on how long it will take to draw up the design.  You must remember that we still have to tattoo during the day so we will be drawing on your tattoo design in the evening, or if we have down time, so please be patient.  It will be well worth your wait for the finished design because it will be a one of a kind design.


Modesto is located in the central valley of California.  We are hour away from Sacramento, and one hour forty-five minutes from San Francisco. We are five hours from Los Angeles.  We have a small airport that has flights that connect to Sacramento, San Francisco, and Los Angles to name a few places.

We are a clean, and knowledgeable tattoo studio.  There is a reason that other studios come to us for advice and training.  We are an ASHI Training Center and provide training in CPR/AED, FIrst Aid, and Blood Borne Pathogens.  We take pride in knowing that our staff members are highly competent tattoo professionals that can provide the highest in tattoo quality.


Come by or call us today.

Oh My Allah!  I really love this portrait my friend.  Great golly gosh.  It looks like it is coming off the skin.  Jen did this black and gray portrait on a fore arm.  It is so smooth and looks just like the photo.  She really enjoyed doing this tattoo.

She draws and paints as well.  Here is a watercolor that she did recently:
