Mexican city where you can find a tattoo with a name you didn’t know
Posted February 06, 2018 06:09:17In Mexico, a country known for its vibrant tattoo culture, the name “Tijuana” is often used to describe any tattooed body part.
A tattoo is a physical, permanent mark that can only be removed by a surgeon.
But that doesn’t mean it’s impossible to get a tattoo in Mexico.
A few weeks ago, a tattoo artist in Tijuana told local media that he could get a custom tattoo on anyone’s face without a doctor’s prescription, and with the name he had written on his forehead.
He explained that he had no idea the name would eventually become his permanent name.
“I just wanted to say that I am from Mexico, and I was born and raised in Tlaxcala, and my parents are from Tijuana,” the tattoo artist, Jorge Gonzalez, said.
“Tijuana means a lot to me, and to have the name tattooed on my forehead is a blessing,” Gonzalez added.
“Tlaxcalans are one of the most beautiful people in the world.”
A tattoo can be a simple statement, like “Toluca” or “El Toluca,” or a more elaborate one, like the “T” on the name of a street or a city.
In Tijuana, people are usually known as “Tjallio,” a nod to their native city of Tijuana.
The name of the tattoo is “La Tjallita,” or “The World of Tjalitas,” according to the Mexican news outlet Reforma.
