Eclipse Tattoo Barcelona T-shirt

I’ve been working on this design for a new Eclipse T-shirt for some time and the wait is finally over. You can buy it through the studio online store right now. Stock is limited to 50 units! Sizes from S to XL are available. Don’t be late if you want one or more for your Christmas presents. As usual, worldwide shipping is granted by DHL Express.

They have been printed with discharge on Stanley Stella Creator T-shirt. They are 100% organic cotton. Once again, the expertise of my friends at Newtownlab has been crucial! I also want to give thanks to my friend Pablo Sinalma for modeling and to Pol Vila for the amazing work he has done with the photoshooting for this and other Eclipse merchandise.

The original illustration is now on Sean Gamill’s private collection in Malta. Thank you very much for buying it Sean!

El Camino patch

Hi there! I present you my new patch : EL CAMINO. It’s a huge one, 20 cm height, full embroidery as usual. It took me a long time and a little bit of extra work but it’s finally available through Eclipse’s online store. This is a limited edition, only 50 units are available. Once they are gone, they are gone forever. I will never do a second edition of this patch.

Every patch comes with a nice sealed envelope filled with some extras. If you want to know more about the process, just check out my instagram and wait for the reel today. Thanks again for all your support! Feliç diada de Tot Sants.

Sirins, storm warriors and time machines

I recently had the pleasure of working on a favourite subject of mine, sirins and harpies. David, aka Sinistral Mortimer on instagram, came from Bratislava to get this huge piece done in two days in a row. That was a true display of strenght and commitment and will always have my admiration and respect.

A million thanks again David for your blind trust in my work and ways.

I also had the privilege of tattooing two old clients of mine in very interesting subjects such as time machines and storm warriors. I feel lucky as hell! Daniel, and Jonathan from El Verbo Studio , thank you very much again and again. Being able to go deeper on these subjects is something I really want to try.

To end this post and stage of the year, I’m going to show you my first collaboration with my good friend and co-founder partner at Eclipse Tattoo Barcelona El Carlo. We were asked several months ago by Juanito Sin Alma to draw something of our own in a combined piece. It was fluid, funny and really great to work on that creature from the abyss:

We would really like to thanks Juanito fro his wild trust in our ideas and also to encourage anyone who feels pretty brave to try and make us a call. Doing this collaboration has been really fun and we are looking forward to repeat the experience!

My last call is for the Brussels Tattoo Convention next month. I still have plenty of time and ideas to tattoo you there. Don’t doubt to contact me through my mail david@davidtejero.com if you want to get tattooed. I will also bring some new merchandise we are working on right now at Eclipse. Keep posted!

Thanks!

Hic Sunt Dracones

…el dragón es la figura ejemplar del monstruo marino, de la serpiente primordial, símbolo de aguas cósmicas, de las tinieblas, de la noche y de la muerte; en una palabra: de lo amorfo y de lo virtual, de todo lo que no tiene aún «forma»…

Mircea Eliade, Lo sagrado y lo profano.

Bajo este lema latino para designar lo inexplorado y peligroso en los mapas de navegación y la reflexión de Mircea Eliade en su obra clásica por excelencia, he iniciado una serie de ilustraciones para adentrarme en el mito del dragón. Como un salto al vacío, tanto físico como intelectual, han sido realizadas sin boceto previo de ningún tipo. Con la plumilla, directamente sobre el papel, he dejado fluir una serie de imágenes descompuestas que cobraban relevancia para su propia composición a medida que avanzaba. Sin reglas y tan solo manteniendo esta forma circular, de momento. En breve espero poder presentar unos cuantos dragones más e ir explorando otros formatos y tamaños.

De igual manera, este pequeño experimento sobre el papel, me sirve para inaugurar mi propia tienda online dedicada exclusivamente a mi obra original o reproducida más personal. Seguiré publicando y produciendo para mi colectivo artístico en Eclipse Tattoo Barcelona y vendiendo a través de esa plataforma, pero ya de una forma más explícita, enfocaré ese material a las derivadas del arte del tatuaje. En este nuevo espacio, que espero actualizar de forma constante, pondré en venta material con un marcado acento experimental. Espero que os guste y como regalo de apertura, los gastos de envío de todas las obras serán gratuitos durante el mes de octubre de 2022.

Muchas gracias de nuevo a todos los que seguís el blog con atención. Espero que la nueva tienda online os sea igual de útil que la que ya tenemos en Eclipse. No dudéis en darme vuestra opinión via mail!

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.

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.

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.
