Dortmund and Wuppertal

Recently I travelled back to Dortmund one more time and I also had the chance to participate in the Wuppertal Tattoo Convention. This trip was special because I had the best time with my friends but also because I was far from home when the terror attacks took place in the heart of Barcelona. I want to give thanks again to all those who asked about the situation in my city during the past weekend. As many places before in Europe, Barcelona is getting back to it’s normality.
All the tattoos here were done between the studio and the convention.

Again I had the luck of having the best clients. My special thanks for the ideas of Patrick, Henja, Ricardo and the choice of Arndt from my sketchbook. It means a lot when you feel so welcomed and you can do what you like most.

As I told you before, I was with my friends this time in Germany. Spending time and tattoo hours with Basti, Renata, Alejo, Marco, Marvin and Melissa has been great. Hope to repeat the experience in the future!

My next tattoo trip will be to the Brussels Tattoo Convention alongside my friends Rotor, Carlo, Ana and Nacho. We all are Eclipse Tattoo Barcelona and this will be the first convention for us using this name. Please get in touch if you want to get tattooed there, I’m already taking appointments through paypal.

Summer tattoos 2017

Summer is getting hot as fuck this year in Barcelona but somehow we keep on going. Those tattoos are some of my favourites from July and this starting august. Thanks to all my clients who come from outside Spain to get some tattoos done by me. I have also started a new project with this backpiece.

2017 is the chinese year of the Rooster and this tattoo will be finished before it ends. By far, one of my favourite large pieces I had the luck to start. I had also the honour to add a new layer of tattoos on Mark Mason’s wild collection. This is the result of what’s getting really interesting and cool:

If you don’t know Mark’s work yet, check it out soon. He’s by far one of the most handpocketing experienced tattooers working in Barcelona. He works with us at Eclipse Tattoo Barcelona during summers and his agenda is always open to fit you in.

Next week I’ll be working in Germany again. I’m excited to be again doing what I like most in one of my favourite places: Farbaffäere. These are my dates and places if you want to get tattooed:

Time Machine II prints and new patches

TMII wp 3

Finally here! Time Machine II print is available through Proyecto Eclipse webstore. It’s been my first time working with this new version of the old known museum etching paper by Hahnemühle. As you can see in the pictures, the edge is deckled, just like it was a handmade watercolour paper. This adds a nice, less cold touch to this limited edition of 8 copies. All of them are signed, numbered and embossed by me. They come with a certificate of authenticity and they have been masterfully printed at Impressionart once again.  All the technical info about the print is in the shop.

You’ll see I have also designed some new patches and I’m very happy with the result! The moon and star patch, named as Cycle patches, are only available together. The big one, is a twisted reinterpretation of Milton’s cosmology diagram from his classic poem Paradise Lost. The diagram appeared for the first time in Homer Sprague’s 1883 edition, nearly after 200 years of the first publication…and it’s amazing. My first idea was to replicate the diagram as it was:
Realm-of-Chaos-and-Night
But! despite it is an amazing picture and idea, it would be a poor challenge to do it that way. So I started to think and later on I found out my own concepts to make this patch. By switching some words and using the death representation as a centre, my Milton’s inspired patch came up. Last part of the process was doing a good research into some books of military insignia from the second world war and Vietnam too. I really love that stuff you know… I have also had the support and advice from El Carlo and Rotor. Once again their expertise in this field solved many problems before they even appeared. Take a look:
patches
Don’t doubt to get your patch as soon as you can. Once they are gone, it’s almost sure they’ll never be back. Limited editions help us to keep our minds creative but they run out fast. We also like to have new stuff as often as we can at Eclipse.

Thanks again for keeping an eye into my work. All the info about the print and patches is available in the online store. Worldwide shipping is also available, as always.

Eclipse Tattoo Barcelona

Proyecto Eclipse sigue su camino y da un paso más. A Carlo, Rotor y a mí nos alegra enormemente anunciar que vamos a montar un estudio de tatuajes en nuestra ciudad. Recientemente y después de una larga búsqueda hemos encontrado un local en el barrio de Gracia que nos parece increíble para trabajar todos juntos. Nos esperan unos meses de esfuerzo y calor para tenerlo a punto en otoño pero sabemos que valdrá la pena.

Después de trabajar en Nahkoé, Aloha y en mi estudio privado junto a Carlo, tengo unas ganas enormes de crear un espacio propio junto a mis socios y amigos. Se cumplen once años en 2017 desde que empecé a tatuar y siento que parte del proceso de seguir adelante en Barcelona pasaba por tomar esta decisión. Gracias a Proyecto Eclipse y un montón de horas de trabajo detrás, ¡parece ser que será posible!

Queremos dar las gracias a todos los que han seguido este proceso durante los últimos meses, especialmente a nuestros amigos y família. A partir de ahora queremos sumar a todo aquel que quiera a esta experencia de construir este nuevo espacio. Por mi parte mantendré el blog actualizado lo máximo posible y a través del instagram de Eclipse podréis también ver todas las noticias. ¡Esperemos no aburrir!

¡Gracias de nuevo y hasta pronto!

—————————————————————————————————————————————–

Proyecto Eclipse is moving forward. Carlo, Rotor and I are extremely happy to announce the opening of our own tattoo studio in Barcelona. After a long research we’ve come up with a nice place in the neighbourhood of Gracia that seems incredible to work all together. We expect a lot of heat and work in the next months but we are sure it’s going to be worthy. 

After working at Nahkoé, Aloha and my own private studio alongside Carlo, I deeply wanted to create a common space with my friends and partners. It’s eleven years now since I started tattooing and this is definetely a great call to make to keep on going in Barcelona. Thanks to Proyecto Eclipse and a thousand working hours this might come to an end!

We want to give thanks to everyone who has followed this process during the last months, our friends and family. From now on, everyone who’s interested in the process of building this new space is more than welcome. This blog will keep updated as usual and Eclipse’s instagram will display all the news. We hope not to bore You!

Thanks again and see you soon! 

Time Machine II

tm II 5
Finally, here it is! My second time machine is finished. This time the size was important in order to get faster results so I changed my big working sheets for a Din A3 one. I must say it’s been a pain in the ass for the amount of detail… but in a matter of seven days everything was done.
This little traveller will see the light in a limited giclée print edition very soon because I’m happier with the result than I was with the first time machine. I’m trying to make some evolution with every piece and it’s getting really fun so, I guess somehow this can become a series one day. Who knows! Some pictures of the process and details:

Thank you very much for your support and your opinions about my work. Keep an eye on Proyecto Eclipse for more news. This is my mail for further requests or comissions:
