4) Sin Rencor Tattoo

The finishing touch is a colourful tattoo, no doubt about it. With the good fortune of not having to hide under layers and layers of clothing for most parts of the year, there are quite a few good tattoo parlours in Santa Cruz. Pachu is the main artist at Sin Rencor and his successful use of bright colours makes him one of the favourites.
