TATTOOING HISTORY – Chris trevino
Chris Treviño, also known as Horimana is a renowned specialist in conventional japanese tattooing who has now been tattooing for more than twenty years, is the owner of Perfection Tattoo in Austin. He is known for his traditional Japanese designs, which have earned him an extensive client base in the U.S. as well as in Japan, where he travels four times a year. He grew up in San Antonio. He earned the nickname “Horimana”, after studying five years under the legendary master Horiyoshi III. ” hori” which means engraver a term which comes from woodblock printmakers.
His detailed, full-body representations of Asian symbology helps us to remember the later works by Norman “salor Jerry” Collins otherwise known as Horismoku. Trevino’s Perfection Tattoo in Austin, Texas, which was established by Bob Moreau in the late 70s.
The shop draws in individuals from each landmass looking to get the endowment of his fine art. His customers are generally genuine about their tattoos, regularly focusing on huge scale extends that cover a lot of their body. Trevino knows how to speak with people to draw out and refine an at first free thought of what they need. He completely comprehends the iconography of Japanese workmanship and clarifies how an apparently basic warrior tattoo can speak to much more than meets the eye in light of the stories behind the character. His inside and out bio can be found in Tattoo Artist Magazine #11 and a full review of his craftsmanship and tattoos can found in his most recent book “Divine beings and Warriors – Horimana: The Works of Chris Trevino”
Horimana is his Japanese tattooer name, given him by Horiyoshi III, however he’s all the more generally known as Chris Trevino, otherwise known as the obsessive worker, otherwise known as the Cyborg, otherwise known as THE MACHINE: Here’s the reason
Hailing from Austin, Texas. Chris Trevino was at that point surely understood in the mid 90s for his bleeding edge tattoo abilities and blaze outlines. This was the begin of the ‘new-school’ development of tattooing and Chris’ name was front and center, yet once he discovered his enthusiasm for Japanese tattoo topics, the compulsive worker propensities and driven energy kicked in as Chris examined and worked relentless for quite a long time, making a trip to Japan a few times yearly, learning both the legacy and the systems, no to say the dialect, and after that pushing the limits in his own, one of a kind way, gaining him the reverence and regard he submissively conveys today. Most mind boggling for an American craftsman is the sheer volume of expansive scale pieces and body suits he’s possessed the capacity to finish in throughout the most recent 15 years or somewhere in the vicinity. Such a large number of that when we did Chris’ meeting in Tattoo Artist Magazine #11, it was the longest article to date, and afterward we made a whole book of his work after!.
Chris is one of the most focused artist/tattooist I’ve ever heard of. Individuals call him The Machine, there’s bits of gossip about him being a cyborg, and all things considered. It isn’t extraordinary for Chris to tattoo 11 to 15 hours for each day, or more.
