Birth of a brand

Ceaser Emanuel


Big hearts are more than tattoos when it comes to Ceaser Emanuel, although he is the no nonsense boss we love to watch on VH-1’s Black Ink Crew, this Bronx, NY native is a charismatic beast with a tattoo machine. Ceaser, a tattoo artist and owner of the Black Ink brand; began pursuing his professional career in the art of tattooing 10+ years ago. Inspired by Marcus Pacheco, after graduating from the High School of Graphic Communication Arts; Ceaser set out early to achieve his goals by setting himself apart from other tattoo artists.

Ceaser’s smooth style with the dexterity to create original tattoos quickly earned him a name in the tattooing industry. He built his Black Ink with goals to transition into a complete and diverse brand; one in which will become a worldwide household name.

Through his appearances on the hit VH-1 show, Black Ink Crew, he plans on continuing to make Black Ink Tattoo Studio a landmark for tattoos. He is refining the views for the use of needles permanently leaving stories upon skin, because he is connecting a culture where…”tattoos link everything together”. He has proven this through his determination to expand his business to become more than a tattoo studio. Even with his prior work within the magazine and graphic design field, it’s no wonder Black Ink has ventured across the board like a snake tattoo wrapping one’s thigh.

Furthermore, The Boss, Ceaser Emanual, will continue to grow as a brand with no plans on slowing down.
