I like to see the softness of the watercolors and where the deeper colors blend into the light.
It’s probably the one style of tattooing that I enjoy doing the most.

So when Cesar @inkcesart was asked to do this lion, he also wanted to add a bit of his own style of flowers to it. He and his client discussed adding “Cesar’s” flowers to it and the result was perfect. I love the two together.
Cesar draws up a lot of his own flash which he is always down to do. Visit his Instagram page or stop by the shop and see what’s available.

The after of a heart rework/coverup done by Cesar.
Cesar likes to do a lot of bold line and color work @inkcesart

He also has a bunch of different flash pieces he has drawn up that he’d love to do for those who may be interested. I’ll try to post a few pieces in the next few weeks.

Once again Tina Gray and Char brought this tattoo to life. So grateful for these amazing people ❤🥰
Thank you GIGI. I LOVE my sleeve. Found more room for some more.
Do you need an appointment to get nose pierced. Also can 14 year old come with?
In LOVE with my new ink! Thank You Gigi, you’re truly awesome!
What openings do you have this week, Tina or Gigi?
Thinking of getting my first, small, simple in a place that won't sag as I age. Ideas? Want color ideally.
Thank you Tina!
Gigi is THE best!!!!!
Hey guys, just wondering how is Tina doing? Praying and sending my best vibes. 🙏🏼
Gigi, thank you so much for the additional paw prints. I am looking forward to adding the rest. :)
So thankful for every person associated with Shades Of Gray. Love my new addition, you're a rockstar, Steve!!! Hugging Tina's neck was a huge awesome bonus!!!! Can't wait until next time. 😉❤️ xoxo
GiGi, there are almost 1100 lines in my chain mail. Are you still seeing circles?
