FINE LINE BLACK AND GReY TATTOO FINDS MUCH OF ITS roots from the PRISONS, THE STREET AND CHICANO CULTURE. THEY ARE CHARACTERIZED BY THEIR SOFT GReY TONES, SILKY soft shading, FINE LINES AND ELEGANT script.

Popular tattoo designs include roses, women’s faces , religious images, Payasas ( clown girls ), Hynas, skulls and much more. All these different tattoos come to life together on the body as a whole and tell a personal story of the wearer.
Introduced to the tattoo parlors by a small group of ‘pioneers’ in the 70’s.

Traditional old skool tattoos were all I knew growing up in a fishing town like Katwijk.


My mind was blown when I saw the black and gray tattoos made by these ‘pioneers’ and I was sold for life

I am a all-round tattoo artist, but Fine line Black and Grey tattooing has become specialty .

All black and grey tattoos I currently make are custom designs drawn on the spot and preferably drawn freehand on the body. This makes the design fit well with the shape of the muscle and body part. I do most of my work single-needle , as the name suggests, everything is done with 1 single needle. No shaders, mags or other large groups with needles. This is the only way to create that smooth and soft stipple shadow/texture.

“This gives your Black and Grey Tattoo that unique and authentic ‘street look’.

What is a good spot for my tattoo?

Ideal places for a fine line black & grey tattoo or single needle tattoo are places where the surface or surface is flat and even. such as: upper arm, inner forearm, calf and upper leg.
Not ideal are places that are subject to stretching of the skin such as elbow, knees and between your shoulder blades.

Getting a tattoo arm sleeve, leg sleeve or back piece tattoo

A black and grey tattoo can be a single or seperate tattoo, which is absolutely fine. But you can also make your tattoo part of a collection of different tattoo designs. For example combined with script or roses. Together, these tattoo designs form your arm or leg sleeve, back piece tattoo or front-panel tattoo. It is smart to think ahead about what other subjects you find interesting for your new tattoo project.
