tattingoldguyLuie Navarro was born in 1975 in Los Angeles. He was raised in Baldwin Park until the age of 15 when he moved to Colton. For as long as he could remember, he has always had an interest in art … especially Chicano culture art. He taught himself how to draw by copying art he found in his older brother’s comic book collection.

When he was 18, he started getting very interested in tattoo-style artwork. At the age of 27, after being constantly pressured by his friends, he finally purchased his first tattoo machine. Seven years and hundreds of tattoos later, he has built a reputation as a well-rounded tattoo artist.
