Chicano Style Airbrushed Fuel Tank by Colm O Connor

A gorgeous airbrushed fuel tank by graphic designer Colm O Connor, black and white graphics look stunning with a flat look finish. The tank was only a practice as well so I can’t wait to see the real finished product as this is perfect. The design was done by tattoo artist  Tim Hendrick but Colm took some liberties with the design to make it fit the tank. I love the beautifully soft graphics of the lady and the roses with the contrasting solid black and white head scarf. It’s a really cool design with Chicano style, just not sure what kind of custom I can picture this on. Either way it’s going to look really sweet!

All the rust was removed and the tank was patched up with any holes filled before the airbrushing started. Colm has some mad skills when it comes to airbrushing, checkout his website colmoconnor.com to see some of his work which is unbelievably good.

Colm is a student graphic designer from Wexford, Ireland and has a incredible style of typography. He has a background in architecture, tattoo, and design and would consider his personal style to be an eye-catching mix of tattoo, pop and street art. To say this is a practice is pretty incredible really, I only hope that he produces more tattoo inspired designs on fuel tanks as he has some serious skills with an airbrush.
