Summer tattoos

A little selection of my recent works done in Barcelona, Switzerland and Dortmund. Summer, as always, is getting too long…hopefully September will arrive by the end of august so, London is closer! I’m really glad to focus on this kind of tattoos and getting them to a new size (bigger) dimension would be great. Please don’t doubt to send me an email if you are willing to investigate with me this kind of ideas.

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.

Eclipse Tattoo Barcelona in Tattoo Life

TL1Tattoo Life magazine was the first tattoo specialized publication I bought when I wasn’t even an apprentice. This was around 2002. Some national and international magazines were published monthly back then but TLM was for sure one of the tops. Specially for the newcomers to our craft nowadays, I know it’s hard to imagine how we felt back then waiting for a number to come after the other… In a world without instagram, facebook or myspace, this was the main social network providing the who’s who info, supplier´s advertisement, conventions,  tattoo history and anthropology, cool interviews and photos and even a selection of flash with every number. So! For me, and for Carlo and Rotor too, getting here with Eclipse it’s very special. As big as the tattoo comunity has grown the last five..ten years…this kind of things still makes you happy and proud. So if you want to know a little bit more about us and the studio, don’t forget to get your copy of Tattoo Life Magazine this month.


Thank you very much Miki for letting us be a part of your magazine. It’s been a pleasure to represent our city and studio philosophy in your pages.

Monsters, witches and more tattoos

These are some of my favourite tattoos that I’ve done over the last month. It’s always great to have enough freedom to choose between two or more techniques to develop the ideas I receive to do this projects. I’m grateful for keeping on doing the subjects I like, and some new ones I keep on discovering. Don’t doubt to reach me out if you are interested in getting tattooed at Eclipse Tattoo Barcelona or in any of my guest spots during this year. Some more dates and places will be added in the next months. Thank you very much.

Brussels Tattoo Convention 2019

brussel-tattoo-convention-2019
Last year I wasn’t able to attend the Brussels Tattoo Convention due to personal circumstances. This year 2019 I’m glad to announce I’ll be back and full of energy to make my best at was has been my favourite tattoo event so far. I know it’s early but my participation is confirmed now and months pass by really fast. Bookings are open and your tattoo ideas are more than welcome. Please, feel free to write me an e-mail if you want to get tattooed there so we can discuss everything with enough time. I will also bring my book of designs with me if you want to take a look directly at the convention. And once again, Eclipse and I will personally do our best to produce some nice prints and merchandise to sell exclusively at the convention. I hope to give you some news about it during this upcoming months.
Thanks again to the organization for including Eclipse Tattoo Barcelona into this big event one more year. Hope to see you all there, clients and friends.

From Darkness to Light

from darkness to light
I love patches. Designing and collecting them it’s one of the funniest things I do for sure. Normally I come up with new ideas every time my last stock is over, but this time at Eclipse we decided it was a good move to produce this particular one again. From darkness to light is an old christian motto I came across with when I was diving in an Odd Fellows book… By the time we made the first run, this little piece of cloth made a lot of sense to Carlo, Rotor and me. It’s still powerful even now and that’s why it’s back on the game.
We know many of you lost the chance of getting one or more due to the small production. Now it’s available again through our webstore. It’s rougher than the previous edition, with no plastic backing for ironing…like fucking good patches should be. Not perfect.
So, be fast if you want some of them. Remember that we always include patches for the big orders and specially if you are interested in our original artwork.
Thanks again for supporting us.
