Demons, monsters, knights and skulls

Some of my most recent tattoos done during this last summer and early September at Eclipse Tattoo Barcelona. Thank you very much to all of you who trusted me after the lockdown! Don’t doubt to contact me if you are interested in getting tattooed. All this pieces are custom or come directly from my black book of designs.
Thanks!

New designs

Hi there, it’s been a little since my last post. I’m back at work as usual, and after a completely different summer, new and old designs are ready to go. I’m gonna publish a sneak peek of them here before on any other media. So if you keep on following my site, you’ll have a chance to see them first. I would really like to start working on larger pieces again as before the lockdown, so my most recent drawings are ready to be tattooed on A3 size or bigger. Always ready to adapt and redesign in order to better fit your chosen body area. As I like to think, these are drafts for a much more personalized project that will end up on your skin. If any of them pleases you, there’s only one way to see them and it’s live. Write me first to check availability and come to the studio to spend as many time as you wish with the book in your hands. Easy right?

And of course, I’m also willing to tattoo some of my old small or medium sized designs. As I said, don’t hesitate to ask and come to see them live if you have the chance.

Thank you very much for being there through the past months. Write me at david@davidtejero.com if you are interested. I’ll try to publish new designs more often and always in my blog first, they look better than in instagram right?
See you at Eclipse!

Black Sabbath a Eclipse

4BB5E7E9-422C-4355-8918-AFDDA9A44634
El próxim 13 de febrer a Eclipse Tattoo Barcelona tenim el plaer de celebrar, gràcies a Branca Studio, el cinquanté aniversari de la sortida del primer disc de Black Sabbath. El Pol i la Marta ens portaran el seu nou fanzine (limitat a 50 cópies) i a més exposaran tota la feina que han dissenyat per la banda. La beguda i la música de Sabbath tampoc faltaran. No cal dir que es una ocasió collonuda per reunir a tota la gent de Barcelona i voltants seguidors de les tendéncies metal més denses. Tot té un origen i aquest l’hem de celebrar!
Desde Eclipse us esperem a tots! No falteu!

Black swan and the never ending end.

73.19 black swan

My last tattoos from 2019 close a decade where I commited myself to tattooing and everything involved without any doubt or hesitation. For me it’s more than ending just another year, specially because 2020 it’s my 15th anniversary into this profession that I love and respect so much. It seems like it was not too far away in time when I started as an apprentice at Nahkoé Tattoos and Piercing down in L’Hospitalet. I want to make this new year, decade and stage of my life and carreer count. Things must and will change in order to improve my skills and attention to detail.

To achieve that I can only rely on my clients, as I’ve been doing so far. I want to thanks once again, as a new year congratulation, to everyone and single of you who has allowed me to tattoo both my ideas and yours. I expect this new 2020 to contribute with more of my creativity and production. Also, at Eclipse Tattoo Barcelona, some improvements with our merchandise are being prepared now…we hope to offer you a nice experience during this year both online and at the studio.

I also will try to organize my travelling agenda for 2020 as soon as I can. Dates and destinations will be announced soon. In the meantime, don’t doubt to contact me if you want to get tattooed by me in Barcelona or any other city in Europe. I love to have as much time as possible to plan and draw.

The end has no end.

Thanks.

 

ADVENT

advent1Advent T-shirt is finally printed. Once again it has been done down at Newtownlab headquarters in Barcelona. When it comes to limited, handmade printed editions for your clothes, they are undoubtfully on the top. The design is based on an old imperial prussian coat of arms. I just added some of my favourite touches. This T-shirt will be for sale for the first time at the Brussels Tattoo Convention 2019. Afterwards it will be available online too. Don’t doubt to take a look to our shop.

I’ll bring with me as many T-shirts as possible to the convention, but also my books, patches and prints. As you may know, I work on a limited edition basis so…once they are gone, they are gone. Don’t be late at the convention if you want any of these things.
Thank you very much again! See you in Brussels.

Dortmund, Brussels and the woodblock thing.

November is getting closer and the Brussels Tattoo Convention is almost here. As I mentioned in my previous post  I’ll be travelling alongside my friends and coworkers at Eclipse Tattoo. This year I’ll be alongside Carlo, Rotor, Nacho Eterno and Anana Tattoos. I have only a few spots open to tattoo during the afternoons, so please, get in touch as soon as possible if you want to get tattooed there. I’m accepting ideas to prepare or any of my flash. Both are welcome! If I have free time at the convention, I’ll be glad to do some walk ups too.

Also, as I published before in my travel dates, I’ll be guesting once again at the best studio in Dortmund: Mind at Large  But this time I won’t be travelling alone from Barcelona. My coworker and friend also at Eclipse Miriam will join me for the first time. I wanted to show some of her work here in my blog cuase it’s really special. Miriam not only focuses on handpoke tattooing but her way of working with the stencil process is unique. Take a look:

Miriam has been working for years in the process of stamping cloths by hand. Later on she started to use the same woodblocks to do it on the skin. If you want to get tattooed in this unique and special way, don’t doubt to reach out the studio and book your appointment. I’ve been tattooed by her and I can guarantee you a painfree experience for sure!

I can only suggest everyone to follow her work on instagram both for her tattoos and clothes : woodblocktattoo and woodblocktextiles  .

I’m really thankful for the oportunity of travelling again with my friends to do what I love most. Don’t doubt to come to the studio or the convention to say hi.
See you all!

Little Black Heart

This little black, armored heart, has taken me ages to finish it and several atempts too. It’s not big but I really want it to work it out in a very special way as it is planned to be the cover of my new book of drawings. It will be on display till july 8th at Eclipse Tattoo Barcelona as a part of our first anniversary exhibition if you have the chance and the will to see it live. You can already buy it if you are interested too, just click on the picture to know about all details. Special screenprints will be available soon.

I want to give thanks again to those that keep on supporting me in my tattoo and illustration days, the ones who really enjoy my hairy animals and specially to those who know about my personal symbols and pay a devilish attention to details.
Thanks for keeping an eye to my work.
Selfishness, Secrecy and Purpose.
