My name is Leopoldo “Creep Reaper”Galaz. As a first generation American, I grew up heavily influenced by Chicano art. My tattoos are a mix of bold black work and intricate fine line. Born and raised in Mesa, Arizona the son of two immigrant parents, Mexican culture is all I knew. Hip hop and hardcore punk rock were later introduced into my life and is how I was first introduced to tattoo culture. I got my first tattoo at the tender age of 17, straight edge x’s down the side of my leg, I was hooked. I started my tattoo career in early 2018 here at Dame of the West under the tutelage of my mentors and shop owners Jon Garber and Josh Carter.
