  • Having been tattooing since 1995, I’ve sat at many a station, worn several hats at different stages of my career, and had the pleasure of working next to some of the most creative individuals I’ve ever known…being in Hampton Roads since spring of 2004 has been no different…In my time in the Tidewater region, I believe that I have become more of the tattooer that I always was, and more in touch with my own way, or style, of doing things…my color palate has expanded, my approach to all projects big and small has gotten smoother and more systematic…my tattoos and artwork have improved, in part because of the environment I am in, the artists around me, and the open minded clientele who choose me to do their work…

    2017 will be my 23rd year as a tattooer, and my artistic influences outside of tattooing are still the same as they’ve always been…the visionary and spiritual arts, surrealism, religious arts and iconography, the Victorian and nouveau eras, art throughout history from the Asian continent, and of course American pop culture… with all of these interests and influences, my work has moved to a more balanced level, employing symmetry and asymmetry, incorporated with the flow of the body, using as much color or tone as possible in every piece that I do…

    If asked what my favorite style to tattoo in is, I would reply that I am very much a tattooer who came up in the 90’s, trying to find the balance in my own sur’reality with some substance…as much as I appreciate black and gray work for its classical appeal, I prefer working in color…in either case though, the larger I get to tattoo, the better, but I am still happy to do one session pieces just the same…as I’ve progressed in my career, I’m doing mostly large scale pieces, and look forward to more…as such, many of the tattoos I do these days are multiple session work at an hourly rate…

    After six years of being open, I am tattooing at studio evoLve, in Virginia Beach, two to three days a week…I’m usually stay booked three to six months ahead of time, and prefer to have an in person, or email, consultation with my clients before I schedule any time for them, or take a deposit…please stop in the shop, email, or see my website for more information… www.gabrielcece.com gabrielcece.llc@gmail.com
