El Guapo in DC

I am El Guapo. The most Guapo man in all of DC. Mucho Amor

“El Guapo, I got a tattoo.”

En serio? Seriously?

“Si hombre. I’ve always wanted to do it and Carlito just got his license, so I said what the hell.”

Carlito? The Carlito we grew up with?

“Si. He just came back to DC. He was in Florida on vacation.”

Oh, Vacation. Is that what they call going to prison in Florida?

“Anyways, he’s back and he got his license. He always was a pretty good drawer and my tat looks awesome. I can’t wait for the nieves to see this.”

This is the same Carlito that used to keep dead birds in his pockets right? I just want to make sure I have the right mental picture of who was giving you your tattoo. What is your tattoo? Is it a mariposa? A hummingbird maybe? A bunny?

“YES. That Carlito. Don't be an idiota. I put mi nombre on my arm. M-I-G-U-E-L.”

Ay Dios mio… You have become that guy. You’re the guy with his own name on his arm. Why did you do that?

“So they never forget my name hombre! Also, when I take off my shirt at the clubs, they can call it out! Plus, I got it done in gangster letters. Check it out.”

Damn. That does look nice. It looks really good.

“See? Carlito is the man!”

Yeah, he is the man. Hey, didn’t Carlito drop out of high school?

“El Guapo, let it go. He’s a new person now with a new career. That’s his past man. His pasado.”

I agree totally with you. I only ask because, bueno, he spelled your name incorrectly on your arm. That’s a “J”. That’s a gangster “J” on your arm. Your tattoo is spelled M-J-G-U-E-L. Actually, wasn’t Carlito dyslexic? But it looks good though. How should we pronounce that? You know, for when they call out your name at the clubs.

“Hijo de una puta…”

Hey! Where are you going? MJ, where are you going? Oh, MJ…

Mucho Amor,

El Guapo

If a guy tattoos his own name on his arm doesn't that make him look gay? Most guys tattoo the names of their esposa or novia, heck even their hija, but no macho hombre wants "MIGUEL" tattooed on his arm!

As long as he didn't get that blasted barb wire around his bicep, he's set.

I don't think I could go with the name on the arm thing. I wouldn't be able to stop thinking about how people could use it to identify my dead body.

Back in the day my cousin "Felipe" had the word weasel tattooed on his arm in Gothic script, total cholo style. As he aged, the tattoo migrated from the tight arc on his shoulder to a loose string of letters extending to his back. My Botticelli still looks pretty good after 14 years though. Heh.

I have "El Guapo" tatooed between my lip and nose in the shape of a beautiful Guatemalan mustache in your honour...
