Cholas have a unique fashion sense all their own, and even people who don’t really understand their subculture know the basics of their style- eyebrows that look like they were drawn on with a Sharpie, heavy eyelashes, facial tattoos, lined lips with dark colored lipstick.
It’s a very unusual look, kinda like goth meets gangster, and to digital artist Michael Jason Enriquez it’s a style that reminds him of growing up in LA during the 1990s.
Here's what Michael has to say about this hilarious image series:
It’s a throwback to the Chola gangster style: “Sharpied” eyebrows, dark lipliner, and the fumes from a can of Aqua Net.
It’s a product of LA where subculture, celebrity obsession, street art, and stupidity are rolled up together like one of those bacon wraped hot dogs sold on Hollywood Blvd.
