Luis Morales had a bit of a different start than some of our other artists. He was a police officer for 8 years. And while he approached his job with integrity and a positive attitude every day, it just wasn’t who he wanted to be.
I started working when I was 16 years old, painting houses and doing construction. When I turned 20, I became a police officer. But there was a lot about it that didn’t fit who I was. Once I left that career and became a tattoo artist, I felt like I could start living again. I could be me.
