Tattoo Workshop, Carl Grace Tattoo, Carl Grace

Carl Grace is a renowned prodigy in the industry. This award-winning artist with SoCal Los Angeles roots is known for his elaborate black and gray tattooing. His work is in high demand; and it’s high time he bestows some of his wisdom.

The Advanced Black & Grace Workshop hosted by Carl Grace is otherwise known as One Workshop to Rule Them All. It's the most advanced, largest workshop Carl Grace has ever offered. Artists can be prepared for epic, comprehensive seminars to inspire epic, dynamic work. Carl Grace assures artists they can learn until their brains (perhaps literally) “blow up.” Words from the master himself. So, who’s ready? Here are the deets:
