Black and Grey

Colp’s seventh collection, Black and Grey, contains fifteen stories that celebrate the art of tattooing. Each looks at the profession and process in a different way and, when viewed as a package, do a good job at capturing the buzz of the tattoo gun and the grimace on the first timer’s faces. You never know, maybe one of them will inspire you to get a little ink done yourself.
