Mi Vida Loca


Recommended Posts

Where did the "Mi Vida Loca" saying come from? I have seen it a lot in chicano culture and on cholas, but not much anywhere else outside of Southern California. I know it was made famous in the 90s from the movie of the same name, but was just trying to find out more background information on the saying.

Back then the cholo sub culture was so popular, we still get to see people like that from time to time, but it's less now.

By the way, this is the ''Mi vida loca'' tattoo that I was talking abut:
