Born in Michigan, Chad Koeplinger now spends much of his life on the road…and all of it tattooing. He's visited 65 countries. He's not been in the same place for more than 14 days since 2005. His art—which draws from traditional American icons—is badass, bright, and undeniably bold.
Raking Lights Projects specializes in original art and collectable prints by tattoo artists. The roster includes Bert Krak, Jondix, Tim Lehi, and Thomas Hooper. Koeplinger's "Dambulla" print is the latest offering and is limited to 25 with three artist proofs. Buy it here.
