Chris Coppola grew up in Clarence, NY. He began tattooing in the year 2000 while attending University at Buffalo. In 2002, he moved to Oahu, Hawaii and worked in a popular studio. While working in Hawaii, he was exposed to many tattoo styles. Hawaii, having a heavy military presence, along with a dense Japanese population and local Polynesian culture, was a perfect place to develop and hone his tattooing skills while focusing on large scale projects. It was an immersion in some of the major tattoo styles still popular today.

Upon returning to Western New York in 2006, Coppola founded a Tattoo Studio. 6th Order Tattoo Studio was founded as a tattoo destination specializing in the custom, large scale work, that Coppola had been developing while working in Hawaii.

Since returning home to Buffalo, Coppola has further developed his artistic skills while exploring various mediums such as pen and ink, gouache, and notably oil painting which are prominently displayed at his 6th Order Tattoo Studio. He has also had the privilege of making travel stops alongside the Cirque Du Soleil show “KOOZA” while tattooing both cast and crew, along with having painted a custom drum kit for the popular band “Fallout Boy.”

Today, Chris spends most of his time continuing to develop his art while also spending his time as a family man to his 2 children and fiancé Andrea.
