Tina Fino’s Tattoo-Inspired Sign Painting

Tina Fino’s Tattoo-Inspired Sign Painting

NYC2 min Read

The visual artist found her calling by painting the window of her own coffee shop, and since then, she’s made tons of signs.

Two tattoo studios stand across the street from each other — one with a magnificent eagle painted on its front door and the other with an old sandwich board that reads “half-price tattoos.” Which one would you visit? 

The front door of New York Hardcore Tattoo, painted by Tina Fino (IG—tina_fino). #NewYorkHardcoreTattoo #signpainting #tattooinspired #TinaFino

The connections that she made at her coffee shop led to future projects in the NYC tattoo community, including storefronts and even banners for tattooists like Becca Genné-Bacon, making Fino one of the go-to sign painters in the area.

To see more of Fino’s work, make sure to follow her on Instagram. If you’re thinking about getting a new tattoo, consider have it done at one of the shops that she painted, so you can see her handiwork in the flesh. Lastly, should you be in need of a new sign for your business, commission her to do it. She can be contacted via her website.
