Mister Cartoon's Tattoo Empire

Mister Cartoon (AKA Mark Machado) runs a rapidly growing clothing and jewelry business from his East Los Angeles tattoo parlor. But his real claim to fame is his unique, Chicano-style tattoos, and his work is a favorite among top music stars like Eminem. NPR's Michele Norris visits the artist in his studio; NPR Online provides photos of Machado at work.
