Name and age: Pietro Elina, 20
Spotted at: Lemmon and Haskell avenues
Occupation: Carpenter and tattoo artist
When this Italian rule-breaker is not building and “barging” renegade D.I.Y. skate ramps in the burgeoning skateboard scene, you can find this Dallas native playing bass guitar for a punk band.
