“I´ll NEVER FORGET WHERE I COME FROM”
Total coincidence to meet this tattooed barber guy, his appearance caught me so much that I wanted to know him and his life story.
Zúñiga knows the barrio life from deep inside the core, of this lifestyle since his childhood, the battles for life and death has been a part of his life for many years.
The gang life in the barrio is a rough and unforgiving life, so he had to change his life.
It was now or never so he made a radical choice and decided to move to the States 10 years ago and started a totally different life and saw other values than the negative life that sadly are affected on the youth.
His motivation was:
That he wanted his daughter to grow up, and be proud of him, as a dad, as role model , instead of being afraid that one day he would end up in prison or dead.
He came back from America with a dream. He wanted to open a barber and tattoo shop, and with his skills as an artist in both haircuts and tattoing it happened.
And because of what he has become and changed in his life he has a lot of recognition from his friends, customers and especially his mom, girlfriend and me!
