The consummate living legend of “Black and Grey” tattooing, Jack Rudy, is a master of the art form.
Before the Jesse James explosion and Monster Garage, you would have a hard time finding out much information on Jack. He was an underground celebrity of sorts with the reputation of being a living legend in the industry.
His mastery of “Black and Grey” where artists are limited to shading with Black Ink has made him an icon in the tattoo community.
Many in the tattoo industry believe that black & grey originated in the prisons where black was the color they had available to them.
The last 30 years have been a journey for Jack as he reinvents and pioneers, single needle tattooing in the style of “Black & Grey”.
This effort has made Jack one of the top tattoo artists worldwide and many credit him with being the man who made Black & Grey tattooing what it is today.
