Black Ink Crew: Boss Man Ceaser’s Tattoos Help Him Put “Family First”

We’ve spent an entire season marveling at the detailed work of Black Ink Crew’s Ceaser, owner of Black Ink and wrangler of shop craziness (who can be an instigator himself from time to time), but what about the stories behind his own body art? Following last night’s emotional sendoff, read on for Ceaser’s take on his most meaningful–and most regrettable–tattoos.

HIS NEWEST TATTOO: “Family First,” which, as we saw on Monday’s finale, matches his mother’s tattoo and pays tribute in part to his late friend Corey. “My favorites are the words,” Ceaser explained.

KEEP IT IN THE FAMILY: Ceaser’s “A**hole” wrist tattoo was done by O’S**t.

REGRETS? “My first one was this horrible one, like, Mortal Kombat,” he said. “My stomach, the crooked cross, was my second one.”

Check more photos of Ceaser’s tattoos, below, and join us in missing Black Ink Crew terribly (yes, already).
