In honor of Cinco de Mayo and Mexican culture, I'm sharing the work of one of my long-time favorite tattooists, Goethe Silva Mier, or just Goethe as he's best know. Born in Durango, Mexico, Goethe has been been tattooing for over 18 years, the last 8 at his studio in Pomona, California and around the world at conventions and guest spots. His work is largely devoted to pre-Hispanic art and culture, particularly Mayan and Aztec.

To learn more about Goethe, read his Q&A with Edgar Hoill in Lowrider Arte.
