He claimed that occasionally individuals mistake they are gang tattoos. I enjoy the attention, stated Lopez. “I enjoy conversing with others. People are interesting to me.

I’m aware that I attract both positive and negative attention, but when I start conversing with them, things change drastically. It’s always positive.

When he declared he planned to get his first facial tattoo four years ago, his wife threatened to leave him. He is thankful she didn’t follow through on her threat. She serves as the engine that drives everything.
