Behind The Business
Yvette Beltran Flores
“A sacrifice to be real must cost, must hurt, we must empty ourselves, giving everything fully to whatever you love. No matter what it is art, music, your career, children and or just that special someone… if you do this you can accomplish great things.” “How often do we tell our own life story? Or even rewrite it. How often do we adjust, embellish, and make sly cuts? The longer life goes on the older we get, the fewer are those around to challenge our account, to remind us that our life is not our life, merely a story we have told about our life. Told to others, but—mainly—to ourselves.” That is what the tattooing business is to me! I feel truly blessed. Helping you tell your stories through our art using you as a canvas. Come take the journey with me and be part of our new story… stay smart and safe…every family has a story. Welcome to The Silver Fox Tattoo Gallery were everyone is family.
Behind The Art
Art, music and writing are all forms of expression and tattooing contrary to popular belief is a big part of that venue. I grow up in the South Bronx during the early 80’s and as long as I can remember drawing and art has been a big part of my life. As a child I spent countless hours drawing, creating and dreaming. Art was and has always been my personal escape; I was able to escape even if just for a moment. Escape the burned buildings, vacant lots and the realities which were my life. Art helped me focus and believe in something greater. Being raised by a single mother with four children, has taught me that the focus shouldn’t be on where you’ve been but on where you are going and more importantly where you want to go. My mother taught us never give up never stops learning and must importantly to follow our hearts and our dreams. One thing we must always remember as we tell our life’s story is to never forget our mentors that believed in us. I will always continue to learn or improve as an artist “a Tattoo Artist”. I would like to thank all my mentors past and present for believing in me… thank you for your trust and your friendship… because of you I am truly a rich man.
