SINCE 1999 WE HAVE been doing FINE LINE SINGLE NEEDLE BLACK AND GRAY TATTOOS, AS THE NAME IMPLIES EVERYTHING IS DONE WITH 1 SINGLE NEEDLE.

Fine Line Single Needle Black & Gray Tattoo finds much of its roots in the streets, the prison and Chicano culture, it is characterized by its fine lines, soft gray tones and elegant script and handwriting.

On the body all the different tattoos come to together as a whole and tell a personal story of the wearer of the tattoo.

This style lends itself well to smaller tattoos (miniatures) but is certainly also suitable for tattoo sleeves and for example a back piece.

Fine Line Single Needle Black & Gray Tattoo was introduced into tattoo parlors by a small group of ‘pioneers’ in the 1970s.

It takes many years of experience to make a good Single Needle Tattoo. You can only see the final quality of the artist only after many years in the skin.

As the name says single needle tattoo everything is done with 1 single needle. No shaders, mags or other large groups with needles. The only way to create that smooth and soft stipple/shadow texture.

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