Freddy is a world-renowned tattoo master. He has worked on countless movie stars, musicians, and sports personalities. You can read praise for Freddy’s work, and his story, from Dave Navarro, Nick Cassavetes, and Danny Trejo; stop and visit him in person at the famous Mark Mahoney’s Shamrock Tattoo off the Sunset Strip. Profiled in numerous TV programs and magazine articles, East L.A. gang member Freddy Negrete was transported from the confines of YA and County Jail cells onto the sets of major Hollywood films such as Batman, Blade, Con Air, Austin Powers and Falling Down. But then, after years of success in the motion picture industry, in a tragic twist of fate, Freddy found himself back inside again: in Folsom maximum security prison, going through heroin/Oxycontin withdrawal, tattooing for packets of ramen soup. Listen as he shares his story of recovery and gives tips to those seeking help.
This week’s episode was brought to you by the WOW-We Care Charity who will be helping us to spread addiction awareness nationwide.
