To look at a tattoo done by Carl Grace is to look at a work of art. His hauntingly realistic black-and-gray tattoos contain a level of detail and reflect a level of mastery that sometimes make it hard to believe that they were done on the skin with a tattoo machine. It is even harder to believe that Grace has only been tattooing professionally for three years. In those years, he has crisscrossed the country perfecting and honing his skills and making a name for himself in the tattoo industry. Last year, Grace traveled to twenty-eight shows. When he’s not working the convention circuit, Grace divides his time between shops and coasts, working at The Painted Bird in Boston and now at a newly established shop, 7 Ink, in Las Vegas.
