Gabriel Cece

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 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.

2020 is my 25th 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, the victorian and nouveau eras, and of course american 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 as possible in every piece that I do…when I can find the time, I very much enjoy painting in oils, acrylics or watercolors, I still like to draw in colored pencils, and taking photographs.

I am very much a tattooer who came up in the 90’s, and I’m finding the balance in my own sur’reality, with some substance…as much as much as I appreciate black and gray work for its classical appeal, I prefer working in color…in any case, the larger I get to tattoo, the better…as I progress 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 10 years of being open, I am still tattooing at studio evoLve, in Virginia Beach, tuesdays through saturdays…I’m usually stay booked three to six months ahead of time, and I prefer to have an in person, consultation with my clients before I schedule any time for them, or take a deposit…please stop in the shop, call, email, or find me on social media.
