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!

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:

Bookings are open, so feel free to write here david@davidtejero.com and ask. I have a lot of prepared designs ready to go but I’m also happy to work on your ideas. As usual, I accept paypal deposits for my clients from outside Barcelona.

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

The Devil, some birds and other time animals.

The end of this crazy intense year marks the begining of some new stuff I’m working on. But! Do not forget the classics!! Goats and harpies are forever.

My special thanks in this post goes to Jose. His commitment and energy coming from so far to get this giant goat tattooed have been inspiring. I’m really happy with the result as it’s always a challenge to work this big. Also was really great to have a good understanding between us since minute one. He’s a fine tattoo collector and his body is filled already with some serious stuff. From tattooer to tattooer, hope you meet him in the future!

The rest of this fine pieces were done at Cobra Tattoos Madrid and Eclipse Tattoo Barcelona, my home. As you know, birds and harpies are always more than welcome! But in this crazy and uncertain times I’m trying to develop a new batch of work…time animals and time machines!

You’ll find some examples of them in my available designs section. This pair are the first time animals I’ve had the pleasure of tattooing.

I really can not wait to expand this line of work and create more for those interested in them. Don’t doubt in getting in touch!
As I’m mostly sure, this will be probably the last post of the year. So I wish you the best for the next one. I’ll be on the road again as soon as possible, hopefully doing some conventions in Europe in 2022. Who knows?!
Take care and thanks again for keeping an eye on my work.

True patch

This is my first collaboration with Silvia Ballerini a.k.a in.ambers doing these amazing handmade skull patches! If you follow her on instagram you’ll have a chance to see her dark talent in action. I really hope you like this limited series, each one is a unique piece itself. I’ve done many industrial patches in the past but this is the first time going handmade and I’m glad with this rough feeling you get.
Don’t loose your opportunity to get your hands on them. I’m sure more editions of different patches with Silvia will come in the future but for the moment, those are the only ones available!
And remember that devil has pills in his eyes and you don’t really have a patch if you don’t have a skull patch. Now you know.

You can get them through Eclipse’s online store, as usual. Shipping will start next week. Always and only with DHL, delivered to your door really fast. Follow me on instagram if you want to take a look to the packaging process…

Thank you very much again!

Hunt, rest and bleed.

A little selection of my favorite works from some months ago til now. I have some ongoing large projects and some new medusae ideas that I would like to test as soon as possible. I want to give special thanks to Marina for her trust on my harpy view for her idea, it was a pleasure from beginning to end. Scott, Dan and Sofia, thanks to all of You too for your patience and dedication. Always happy to work on things with wings, no doubt.

If you are looking for some inspiration for your new project, please visit my available designs section. They are ready to be tattooed or at least they can be helpful as a guide of style. I’m always open to answer your doubts through my email david@davidtejero.com.

My agenda is also open for my next travels. I have sadly cancelled Valencia due to family matters but I will rearrange my schedule there as soon as possible. Don’t doubt to contact me if you are interested in getting tattooed.

Nos vemos pronto!

Monsters and dragons, goats and ravens.

Another summer is here and I’m glad to keep on working with my own ideas and clients proposals too. Mixed monsters and animals are my stuff for sure, don’t doubt to get in touch if you have the idea of getting some of them. There’s also a pair of big projects I’ve also started recently and I’m willing to continue as soon as possible.

I want to give special thanks to Laura, Jonatan, Jose and David. Thanks for your trust and behaving so well during the sittings.

Hope is going to be more content to show up after the summer! Until then, thank you very much for keeping an eye on my work.

Owl

I’m really happy to finally see the end of this great owl for Filip. Four sittings in total to complete this front piece, full of good conversations and shared thoughts about illustrators, music, fucking politics and Andorra. Needless is to say that I’m grateful as I can be to connect with clients like him. And he is a fucking rock.
If you want to know more about him and his music artwork, which I fully recommend to any band, visit and follow @deadflagstudios. He and his partner are just doing really cool stuff and it’s only going to grow more and more.

If you are interested in this kind of big birds, in this size or even bigger, don’t doubt to contact me on my email david@davidtejero.com. I’m always up to start projects like this one if your willing is real. As Filip has done, a regular and full commitment to see it through is the only way to see proper results with this kind of tattoos. I’ll be glad to answer any proposal and meet in person if possible to discuss it.

Thanks again!

Birds and Monsters

Hi there! It’s been a while since my last post. I’ve been working on some new large pieces like this one. This harpy on Franki Tattoo is finally done and waiting for the final photo shooting. In the pictures above, some parts are already healed. I’m very pleased with the result and happy to explore this kind of theme/sized tattoos. Don’t hesitate to hit me up if you are interested in some!

Another ongoing project is this big owl for Filip, one of the two heads behind deadflag studios. It’s a challenging one, trust me! I’m enjoying the process very much and learning a lot. Hopefully, will be finished in one more sitting.

And finally, a one shot tattoo on Juanito Sinalma right above the harpy I tattooed on him some months ago. I really like to work on this kind of abyssal monsters too. Don’t mind if they don’t have feathers!

If you wish to get tattooed, send me an email here: david@davidtejero.com. I will keep my travelling agenda closed a little bit longer but you can always find me at Eclipse Tattoo Barcelona. As soon as I got new dates for Germany, France, Portugal and England I’ll post them here and on instagram.

Thank you very much for all your support.

Take care!
