QUINTESSENTIALLY AMERICAN IMAGERY
Miami born Chris Fernandez didn’t lose any of his signature old- world charm as he made his way northwards to join the staff at Kings Avenue Tattoo in New York City, where he is now a resident artist. Honing a very direct, no- nonsense traditional style, he built his portfolio from bold custom work and original flash designs, both of which come from quintessentially American imagery and narrative.
His tattoos have an un-penetrable consistency, and push the reaches of ‘less is more’ with a simplicity that reveals itself in layers. Perhaps even more importantly, he steers away from repeating himself from tattoo to tattoo- even the classics hold their own among a slew of replicas.
