from "El Templo Tattoos

El Templo Tattoo was established in 1989 in Torremolinos, province of Malaga, state of Andalucía, Costa del Sol in Spain. Lucas and wife Linda opened 1 of the first legal and licensed tattoo-studios in Spain at that time.

Lucas is born in Tattoo-surroundings, his uncle Pancho was a tattoo-artist in Belgium (from 1965 until 1978). Linda, who started tattooing after helping out some time in a studio first, have both more then 30 years of experience in tattooing.

After traveling around in Europe, tattooing for our living expences, we worked a while in Spain for a Dutch tattooist; Gipsy and Lady.  After a year in Spain we decided to settle down and take over the studio we had started up with Prem a year before in 1989.
Our hard work over the last 15 years has resulted in us building a good reputation in Andalucía and surroundings.
Good word always spreads fast.
Lucas still travels a lot to international conventions in Germany, England, Belgium and USA, where we have a lot of tattoo- friends. This has helped us to attain a high level of professionalism which we practice in our business.

Linda in 2013, STILL tattooing.
