From birds caught in mid-flight to elaborate NYC-inspired cityscapes, Gene Coffey tattoos those images in a fluid painterly-style best known as “Watercolor Tattoos.” Paint splatters and drips are constants in his work, and there are street art hints here and there like images resembling spray-painted stencils. The urban vibe may be connected to the artist’s city of residence: New York City, where he works with Brian Wren at Tattoo Culture.
