Freddy Negrete:
“He's one of the old-school Goodtime Charlie, early Jack Rudy guys. Freddy is one of those guys that could come in with his feet on backwards or his hand busted...He had that whole East LA gangster thing but even in tattooland he was a legend. When he rolled in, like Chicano, in the early ‘70s, he’d always have a couple hot chicks on his side. He's the same thing to this day, he'll have a couple of young girls on his side. And he’ll just bust out these beautiful hand-drawn tattoos. He's definitely the underbelly of it. He's like the gangster tattoo artist.”
