This tattooing style is thought to have originated from prisons in the s and s and was later popularized in tattoo parlors. Black-and-gray is sometimes referred to as "jailhouse"  or "joint style"  and is thought to have originated in prisons where inmates had limited access to different materials; they resorted to using guitar strings for needles  and used cigarette ashes or pen ink to produce tattoos. Typically, black-and-gray tattoo work is produced by diluting the black ink with distilled water in varying proportions to create a "wash" that results in lighter shades. Black-and-gray techniques are often employed for a variety of tattoos. Japanese irezumi , such as the rising koi, are traditionally done using black-and-gray,  although colored irezumi sometimes use black-and-gray backgrounds in a manner similar to sumi-e brushwork.
