The song is all about tattoos, and the criticisms and prejudices tattooed people sometimes face. Regardless of what others think though, the message is clear - be yourself, and own your tattoos! Andrés Oddone produced the track, and the result is an old-school Boom Bap sound inspired by East Coast 80s rap. The video, directed by Phil Chagnon in Montreal, illustrates this world through a very raw and urban aesthetic. The black and white treatment reveals both the beauty of the tattoos and evokes a street atmosphere akin to an old clip of New York rap.
San Cristóbal Baile Inn is Boogát’s third album. The songs are entirely in Spanish, and the music revisits an electronic sound infused with rap and Reggaeton flavours. A rhythmic, uplifting, party record, Boogát stays true to his Latin music roots and remains politically charged. The album was written while Boogát spent a year living in Mexico’s capital city, in search of a personal connection to his parents' culture. Because his mother was from Mexico, he wanted to bring the family to the city and explore its neighbourhoods, music and subcultures. On this journey he connected with the diaspora of international Latin musicians who congregate in the metropolis, making Mexico City the number one place for Latin music.
