Traditional tribal designs are often done in black/gray. These are often done on the back or arms or legs. Other good choices for black and gray include traditional Chinese or Japanese designs and portraits.

Some of the best images or tattoos I have come across would include portraits, celtic or skull art work. Although there are many different tattoos in black and gray, the portraits and skull work tend to come out more amazing. In all reality, any style or image can either be done in color or black and gray.

The best designs for black and gray tattoos are going to be line art, images that look like they were drawn with a pen. It should be clean and simple, the more complicated it is, the less clear the image will be. Other good choices are abstract designs, knot work, barb wire or Celtic designs.
