I think Luke is the best example of the saying "never judge a book by its cover". Did I take a picture of him - without seeing him - after hearing about his face tattoos? Guilty as charged.
Moments after I met him, that evaporated.
He may look a bit gangster, but he's one of the nicest people I've ever met. Has the heart definitely in the right place, and a damn big one at that!
A great attitude and so much positive energy and love emanating from him - it's impossible to be in a bad mood around him!
Speaking of which - once he starts drawing, it's very hard to stop him. That's why everything in his shop - windows, chairs, tables - is painted.
If you're ever in Africa (yes the continent and yes I know it's pretty big) and fancy a tattoo make your way to Muizenberg, near Cape Town (SA) and check out badpeopletattoo - you will not regret it!
