new construction: Trendwatch Philadelphia: The House Tattoo - 11/12/10 01:45 AM
 
They're skinny. They have tattoos. They're invading Fishtown.

We were checking out the Postgreen blog and saw that the final exterior images for the Skinny Project in Fishtown had been posted. The finishing touch? The house tattoos by local artist Candy Depew.
Tattoos aren't for everybody. But for houses? We think we love it. It gives a modern home some distinction from all of the other new construction projects that are going up. It's not enough to just be sleek these days, you've got to accessorize well.
