Single needle tattooing


freehand tattoos design by maarten 1 needle


Single Needle black and Gray Tattooing  since 1999,  like it says al is done with 1 single needle.

No shaders, mags or other large groups of needles , Single needle black and gray the original and only way to create that Smooth and Soft stipple shading wich is needed to get that real authentic street look.

Single needle Black and Gray Tattooing, finds most of his origin from the prisons and the streets, characterized by their soft gray tones silky smooth shading fine lines and elegant script.
Subjects like Roses, Religious, Payasa’s, Hyna’s, Skulls and much more, flowing together in a dreamlike manner telling a personal story of the wearer.
Introduced into the tattoo shops by a small group of ‘pioneers’ in the 70″
