The Edit: Mo Coppoletta
Mo Coppoletta is a man who needs little introduction. A true aesthete and the embodiment of a rake, he’s a regular fixture in the magazine and the proprietor of one of London’s most esteemed tattoo parlours, The Family Business, which is based in Exmouth Market.
Born and raised in Verona, he originally studied to be a lawyer, however, tattooing was his true calling. He’s arguably the most elegant and well-dressed tattoo artist in the world, a man with finely acquired taste who acquires his clothes from distinguished houses and shoes from Stefano Bemer, amongst many more reputable makers. He’s even designed a series of pocket squares made in collaboration with Turnbull & Asser exclusively for The Rake. He’s also a venerated collector of watches, favouring and supporting independent brands who pay great respect to the pillars of design and originality.
As part of our ongoing series, we asked Mo to select a few items on TheRake.com that have recently grabbed his attention.
