Lino Gil moved from Miami Florida to provide a better home life for his children Chandler and Corbin Gil. Lino’s experience in managing the “Tattoo’s by Lou” the Hialeah Shop, which was featured in Miami ink, giving him the skills and knowledge to open his very own Lounge Lizard Tattoo shop in Greensboro, NC. Lounge Lizard Tattoo quickly became one of the leading and premier tattoo destinations in the region.
Unfortunately, in 2008 Lino’s youngest child Corbin Gil was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. In 2009, at age 8 Corbin Gil lost her battle with cancer leaving behind father (Lino), Brother (Chandler), and community of loved ones. The death of Corbin took a hard toll on Lino’s art, business, and personal life. Dark days were ahead for many years but eventually the light shined through.
In 2011, Lino Gil married Crystal Jackson ushering in a period of healing and rebirth. In 2018, Lino was ready for the re-branding of Lounge Lizard Tattoo and re-dedication to his art craft. Step-son Jason Toomes and partner Ruben Pineda, bought into the business and established Lounge Lizard Tattoo, LLC. Lino decided to hand over management to Jason and Ruben to focus on his art work full time. Management of "Lounge Lizard Tattoo" has decided to dedicate the relaunch and re-branding to Corbin Gil, cancer survivors, and the family of cancer victims. Lounge Lizard Tattoo, will donate 10% of its yearly earnings to St. Jude’s,” Help End Childhood Cancer.” Future plans include the opening of a second shop to be dedicated to Corbin Gil and named, ”Corbin’s Place.”
