Skeleton hand tattoo by Luc.CBT

Certain designs are ment for certain people. That was the case today as Cool hand Luc tattooed long time friend Wang Chang here at CBT Studios. Luc hand crafted this custom design to fit Ms.Chang accordingly. Needless to say she loved the traditional design which was tailored specifically for her. Slowly but surely, she is building up her tattoo sleeve to her liking with all original designs by Luc. For info to book a tattoo appointment with Luc, email us at

DIA de Los Muertos Tattoo by Ralph.Gere


Raphael Gere Rodriguez @Ralph.Gere took in a walk-in today and wow was he pleasantly surprised. It’s not always that you’ll get a walkin client with such a cool idea. Fortunately for us here at CBT Studios we have the best clients even if they just have walked in unexpectedly requesting a big piece. Raphael got a chance to add this DIA De Los Muertos custom tattoo to this clients collection.  Black and grey with some color color on the roses. This piece took about 4 hours to complete. To book a Tattoo appointment with Raphael , you can email us at
