R.I.P Jose Carrera, Founder of Ochoplacas Tattoo Shop. Viewing Tonight in Miami
Jose L. Carrera, artist, family man, and founder of OchoPlacas Tattoos passed away quietly on Sunday morning of natural causes. Carrera was an immensely talented artist who started in the street and first cut his teeth on body art while incarcerated, eventually opening the thriving tattoo shop on 8th Street. Employee Leo Valencia stated that "Jose did everything for his daughter and his family...hopefully his vision will live on."
New Times recently chronicled his artistic ascent in an extensive profile, which you can read here.
There will be a service for him today, Monday, September 8, at 5 p.m. at Bernardo Garcia Funeral Home, 8215 SW 40th St., Miami.
