Storm Warriors

This past summer I had the chance of tattooing a pair of gentleman coming from England and the U.S.A and both asked for my beloved storm warriors. So thanks Adam and Javier for your trust in this particular subject of heavy birds. It’s been a pleasure.

I also had the chance of taking a closer look to one of my favourite tattoos from 2021. This one is on Jonatan and we will continue his leg very soon!

Don’t doubt to get in touch if you want one of these birds. I always have some stuff already drawn but we can also work on a custom project for you. Please contact me here david@davidtejero.com

You can always find me at home, Eclipse Tattoo Barcelona, but I will also be visiting Madrid and Brussels very soon. More places will be added to the agenda before the end of the year.

See you around!

Full embroidery

I have new patches available and also a reedition of the realm patch. It’s always fun to work on this little pieces of merch. More of them are coming in the upcoming months prior to the Brussels Tattoo Convention, where I will have a full display of items. If you want to buy them now, visit our online store at Eclipse.

As usual, I love to make them in a full embroidery technique. They are rough and not perfect, as real patches should be. Expect little variations from one to another! Life and Death patches are sold in pairs, and I ‘ve worked a little bit on the packaging. Only 50 pairs available. Make sure you add them to bigger orders if you want to save some money on the shipping costs and don’t forget to keep posted for more news!

Thanks again!
And a little reminder, my next confirmed guest dates are:

Brussels Tattoo Convention 2022

So! Once again, I’ll be back in Brussels for the international tattoo convention. My first tattoo show after Covid times and lockdowns. As usual, I’ll share my time and space with my friends and coworkers of Eclipse Tattoo Barcelona in a big team booth. We’ll try to bring our best merch as we do in every convention. Keep posted for more news about it!
Bookings are open. If you want to get tattooed, please write me here: david@davidtejero.com . All ideas are welcome but I will give priority to those clients that want to get tattooed some of my available designs. Small and medium size tattoos are a good choice for a convention as I will not engage in full day pieces as in previous editions.

Hope to see you there again, old friends and clients. Thanks Kim for putting up again this big european show.

Long Live Tattooing

This is the artwork I’ve been comissioned to do for the new studio of the italian tattoo master and commander Rino Valente. Long Live Tattooing will open it’s doors this week in San Casciano, Chianti (Italy). I encourage everybody to follow Rino’s work in full, he’s a true craftsman whose abilities don’t end in tattooing at all. A genius figure I’ve been glad to know in person for years and trusted my projects on leather since long ago.

Once again, my Molotows pens and a Din A3 Saunders Waterford paper have been my weapons of choice. For this kind of projects, that take long and need an extreme clean outcome, this combination it’s far better than other traditional inking options. Love the quill and ink but I guess I’m not that skilled!
I feel really lucky to have the chance of working in illustrative works like this one, so if you have a project proposal for me, don’t doubt to let me know through my email : david@davidtejero.com.
Thanks again for following my work here in my blog, we all know it always feels better to see the pictures in a good resolution size. Instagram has its limitations! Remember, Long Live Tattooing.

Time machines, time animals, birds

First and never last but always, yes…the first selection of 2022 tattoos. I’m really happy to have the chance of working on these three subjects. They are really interesting and I know that, specially for the strange animals and machines, a huge amount of trust is required from my clients. So again, thank you very much for stepping forward. All these tattoos were done between Eclipse Tattoo Barcelona and Cobra Tattoo Madrid.
This year, as things seems to be back on track, I’ll try to travel a little bit more to old and new places as well. Right now, two destinations are confirmed:

Thanks again!
First and last and always: til the end of time.

La Cobra Bar

Y con esta ya van tres cobras en mi maleta. Hace unos meses me propusieron diseñar la nueva camiseta de La Cobra Bar Barcelona y este es el resultado que por fin se puede mostrar después de unos cuantos retrasos debido a las restricciones del ocio nocturno. Por lo que parece, esto es solo el inicio de una serie de colaboraciones que periódicamente se irán realizando con artistas locales. La Cobra cuenta ya con una buena tradición de eventos en su local dedicados a promover la cultura urbana de Barcelona a través de exposiciones, performances y música en directo. Estoy super agradecido a Milenko y Ricardo, dueños del bar, por confiar en mí para este pequeño proyecto lleno de buenas energías. Se nota que son ellos mismos, junto con Ona Salvador, quienes atienden la barra durante toda la semana de 19:00 a 01:00. Este tipo de locales son los que valen la pena sin lugar a dudas.

¿Cómo hacerte con una de las camisetas? Pues como todas las verdaderas cosas buenas de la vida y la ciudad, en directo mejor. Solo se pueden conseguir pasando directamente por el bar. La edición es limitada así que no tardéis en visitar La Cobra y tomaros algo. Por último, si os interesa estar al tanto de su agenda cultural y de eventos, la mejor forma es seguirlos en instagram. Seguidles, visitadles y apoyadles!
Larga vida a La Cobra!

Dystopia at Das Kabinett

This is my contribution to Dystopia, a new dark age art exhibition at Das Kabinett, Berlin. What to expect on 11th march? A collection of many tattooers around the world offering their visions about this main theme:

It has been almost two years into a disquieting global crysis, and as dark and bleak perspectives open up to our eyes, we warily enter a new era of unimagined fears, medical pioneering and new bureaucracy.

Living in a time that generations before ours have called THE Future, we have to face the fact that our days are very far from that utopic ideal; there’s no bright future, only a shrinking present, slowly corroding itself into an embarassing past.

We dreamed of jetpacks and space travels, alien encounters and galactic empires, only to wake up to a new millennium of medieval nightmares: plagues, conflicts, climatic disasters, discrimination, cyber-dictatorship and anti-scientific obscurantism.

What will be expecting post-humanity in the next decades or centuries? We surely don’t know, but we’d like to invite you to a reflection on the dead-and-gone and the still-possible-futures, on contemporary nightmares and future dark ages, on glorious retró techno-epos and brutal pasts we would rather cancel.

I want to give thanks to Matteo and all the team at Das Kabinett for putting up a very promising show after this two years of pandemic boredom. Let’s get back to some of our old habits by promoting this kind of art meetings. If you are in Berlin in march, don’t doubt it.

Madrid en Cobra

Hola a todos!

A partir de ahora voy a intentar trabajar en Madrid con la máxima regularidad posible y siempre con mis amigos de Cobra Tattoo. Después de mis visitas en Noviembre y Febrero, vuelvo en Marzo con un montón de ganas los días 17, 18 y 19. Mi agenda siempre está abierta y tan solo has de escribirme a david@davidtejero.com si te interesa tatuarte conmigo.
Por motivos de tiempo y disponibilidad doy prioridad siempre a tatuajes que pueda terminar en una sola sesión, ya sean proyectos custom o diseños ya preparados de mi libreta negra. Igualmente, si tienes ganas de iniciar algo más grande o complejo, no dudes en consultarme y lo hablamos sin problemas.

Nos vemos en breve en el Cobra!
Muchas gracias!
