CORRALITOS — Like many young people, Misty Galzan knew what she wanted to do when she grew up.

But for most kids, those dreams often change as they grow older and their life experiences point them in new directions.

That never happened with Galzan, who said she has been an avid artist “as long as I could hold a pencil.”

“I wanted to be a tattoo artist since I was 12,” she said. “I always knew that was what I wanted to do.”

Galzan got her first professional tattoo equipment when she was 19 and soon became an apprentice. She has since worked in several shops, including Freedom Tattoo in Watsonville.

“Fourteen years later, I’m still doing it,” she said.
