Bruxelles tattoos and more

Bruxelles Tattoo Convention has been my best tattoo show so far. This is a selection of the works I’ve done there. I want to give thanks again to all my clients there! I wait you in Barcelona if you want to repeat the experience in a much more comfortable space!

And some of my work back at home during this last month. I’m really happy with all these 3 tattoos. Don’t doubt to contact me if you want something similar! Finally, my two big ongoing pieces in Barcelona:
91

Both Agnés and Ignasi are enduring a painful process! I’m really grateful to them for trusting me with such large pieces. It always carry a lot of stress to start these huge tattoos but once you are in there, shading, it’s great. We will finish them before the end of the year I guess!

Please, if you want to get tattooed, or just ask about any doubt you might have, write me here: david@davidtejero.com I’m booking the last spots of the year. Thanks!

Monster II print and Eclipse T-shirts

After Florence and Brussels Tattoo Conventions my new T-shirts for Eclipse Tattoo Barcelona are ready to be sold online. They are Gildan Premium of 180 gr and are printed in discharge for an everlasting quality. Masters at Newtownlab Barcelona have done they work in an excellent way one more time! Stock is limited to 50 and some of them are already gone. Be fast if you want one!

I have also turned my last illustration into a little run of 10 giclée prints. Some of them were sold at the Brussels Tattoo Convention this weekend. The remaining ones are for sale now through Eclipse’s online store. Every one of them is signed, numbered and embossed by me. Once again, they have been printed at Impressionart. I want to give thanks for the attention and good vibes towards my work, it really means a lot. The original artwork is now a part of Sean Gamil’s private collection.

Well! Brussels Tattoo Convention is about to begin and I’m already fully booked. I want to give thanks to my clients who booked their appointments months ago. I’ve also saved some time in the saturday and sunday afternoons to do some designs from my sketchbook and talk to anyone interested in our merch at Eclipse. I really love when conventions get dynamic and I can get in touch with new clients and tattooers. All these designs are not too big, easy to endure if you choose the right area! Please don’t doubt to drop by our booth at any time and ask. I’ll be glad to help out. See you there!

New Old Ways by El Carlo

book 1
This book is the second compilation of line drawings and stencils by my friend El Carlo, comprising the most interesting works from 2013 to 2015. Some of You ( lucky ones) may have the first sketchbook he put up when we were working at Aloha Tattoos Barcelona some years ago. Well, this one is a whole new world! Same spirit but with a professional edition thanks to Okulus Bookshop (former Freaks Books Barcelona) and the inner design work by Terry Sucrana from Black Bible Books. Cover design is done by Ana Revuelto with an old Carlo’s linocut piece.

As you can see in the pictures, this is not the standard kind of sketchbook we are used to. Carlo’s choice for a powerful and wild composition of elements, in collaboration with Terry Sucrana, has been great. Not boring. Not usual. Still full of info and very easy to manage due to the measures of the book. For all these reasons we are very happy at Eclipse because this is our first collaboration with Okulus Bookshop and Publishing and the result is great. For all of You who already know Carlo and his work, you’ll also find it familiar in some way, the book itself it’s a good reflection of his attitude towards tattooing. Out of the mainstream tattoo trends, this compilation speaks for it self and shows a wide experience by the author in treating with the old icons and his own aesthetic proposals.
It’s been a privilege for me to see the early stages of this project and all the work involved in it. I know I’m not the hardest critic too! But trust me, give it a try if you already have a sketchbook collection or you want to start it someday. You can check the book out at Okulus Bookshop in Barcelona or at any of the tattoo conventions they attend during the year. I know that USA distribution has already begun. Next events where you can find it will be the Florence and Brussels tattoo conventions this next November. You can buy it online through proyectoeclipse.bigcartel.com .

Catalunya 1 d’Octubre de 2017

Soy castellanoparlante y por ese motivo, como en anteriores posts, voy a escribir en esta lengua para que el conjunto de españoles puedan leerlo sin problemas. Soy catalán y he votado hoy en el referéndum por la independencia. Debo admitir que no tenía planeado participar por diversos motivos socio-históricos que no quiero detallar aquí. Este no es un blog político.

Los motivos que me han empujado a salir a la calle y hacer cola durante horas para poder votar son las gravísimas actuaciones policiales que hemos presenciado hoy. Repito, motivos políticos a parte referentes a la validez de la convocatoria electoral,  la violencia desarrollada hoy por el Cuerpo Nacional de Policía y la Guardia Civil es injustificable.

Ya que este blog es sobre mi trabajo, aprovecho para explicar que durante doce años de carrera en Barcelona he tenido la oportunidad de tatuar a policías y militares de diversos cuerpos. Mossos d’Esquadra, Policía Nacional, Guardia Civil, Polícia Local de diversas localidades, Guárdia Urbana de Barcelona y militares tanto españoles como extranjeros. Nunca jamás he dudado de su profesionalidad y además me han alegrado más de una tarde con sus anécdotas. Mi respeto hacia su trabajo es total porque sé cómo y de qué manera se la juegan de forma anónima en muchísimas ocasiones.

Lo sucedido hoy no tiene justificación. La resistencia pacífica de gente sentada en el suelo de un colegio no puede ser desactivada con el nivel de fuerza que han mostrado las imágenes en video y en directo. El motivo es que ninguna de esas personas supone una amenaza inmediata para la integridad física de ninguno de esos agentes. No portan armas, no producen disturbios, ni siquiera tienen una actitud agresiva. ES ILEGAL CARGAR DE ESA FORMA CONTRA LA POBLACIÓN CIVIL EN ESAS CIRCUNSTANCIAS. En Cataluña hemos tenido malas experencias con los antidisturbios de los Mossos d’Esquadra en el pasado. Ni en esos momentos hemos presenciado lo que hemos tenido que ver hoy :

Esta actuación ha conseguido mi voto y el de muchísimos otros que no tenían pensado asistir hoy a los colegios. Repito, sin olvidar el contexto político y la opinión que tenga cada uno sobre este referéndum, centraos en la violencia desarrollada hoy contra ciudadanos pacíficos de todas las edades. Es inmoral golpear a ancianos y niños, lo sabéis. Los agentes responsables deben ser detenidos de inmediato por sus actos y juzgados en consecuencia.

Señor Rajoy, Señora Saez de Santa María, Señor Millo y Señor Albiol. Su posición política, justificable desde el ejercicio del poder que sustentan por mandato democrático nacional,  no puede amparar estos hechos gravísimos. NO HAN SIDO SOLO ACTUACIONES CONTRA PAPELETAS Y URNAS. HAN ATACADO A CIUDADANOS NO AGRESIVOS CON UNA FUERZA DESPROPORCIONADA. Su dimisión inmediata es la única via para salvaguardar la poca credibilidad del gobierno central en una inmensa mayoría de catalanes, muchos de ellos en contra de la independencia de Cataluña.

Hoy he votado en el mismo colegio dónde cursó mi padre su educación primaria en los años sesenta bajo el régimen franquista. Es un hecho significativo desde un punto de vista histórico en un día como hoy. Si mi voto no se contabiliza no me importa, he hecho lo correcto junto a mis vecinos por nuestra dignidad.

Amigos y clientes de toda España, soy bisnieto de un oficial de la Guardia Civil. Soy nieto de gallega, catalán, asturiano y leonesa. Soy hijo de asturiana y catalán. Soy catalán. No tengo miedo. Despertad y salid a vuestras calles por nosotros y vosotros.

Gracias.
