The Gypsy Gentleman – Episode 04: San Diego y Tijuana from Marcus Kuhn on Vimeo.

Its Finally time for the fourth installment of one of our favorite video series, The Gypsy Gentleman. The forth in a series chronicling the travels of Marcus Kuhn as he visits San Diego and meets up with Bill Canales & Rob Benavides. From there they travel to a grave yard in Tijuana to find inspiration for there Mexican inspired tattoos.

Bill Canales

My name is Bill Canales and I was born in Couhuila, México. My biological mother passed away when I was two years old. After I was adopted, I lived with my new family in El Paso, Texas.

My tattoo career started at Renegade Tattooing in 1992. Years later, after I moved to Europe, my tattoo career reached a turning point. What I found there moved my work toward the direction of my current style, which is mainly based in Asian techniques.

When I decided to come back to the United States, I moved to San Diego, California, and started working at Avalon Tattoo, a staple of the San Diego tattooing community.

In 2008, I opened Full Circle with the help of my beautiful wife, Becky, and two amazing kids, Maya and Mateo. I hope to give back to the craft that has given me so much in my life.

Thank you Marcus for this amazing opportunity to be a part of something great!

Rob Benavides

Rob Benavides. Born and raised in San Antonio Texas. I learned to tattoo in Chicago, Illinois under the Master tutelage of the infamous Fat Joe Scapin. I relocated to Southern California in 1996. I now own and operate the world famous Flying Panther Tattoo studio in sunny San Diego, CA. I specialize in classic style western Tattooing and raising a Family of five. My aim is to preserve and perpetuate classic tattoo technique, culture and style.
