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!

Last from 2017, first from 2018

A true mix of different photo qualities, places and times. Last two months have been very stressing and demanding due to the opening of Eclipse Tattoo Barcelona. I’ve done my best to compilate my work without missing any important piece. Some of the big birds on Agnés, Ignasi, Victor and Adrián are half healed in the pictures. I’ll try to have better pictures of them in some months from now. I’m really happy to keep doing this kind of tattoos in Barcelona and other spots, specially in Dortmund.

Well! Brussels Tattoo Convention is about to begin and I’m already fully booked. I want to give thanks to my clients who booked their appointments months ago. I’ve also saved some time in the saturday and sunday afternoons to do some designs from my sketchbook and talk to anyone interested in our merch at Eclipse. I really love when conventions get dynamic and I can get in touch with new clients and tattooers. All these designs are not too big, easy to endure if you choose the right area! Please don’t doubt to drop by our booth at any time and ask. I’ll be glad to help out. See you there!

New Old Ways by El Carlo

book 1
This book is the second compilation of line drawings and stencils by my friend El Carlo, comprising the most interesting works from 2013 to 2015. Some of You ( lucky ones) may have the first sketchbook he put up when we were working at Aloha Tattoos Barcelona some years ago. Well, this one is a whole new world! Same spirit but with a professional edition thanks to Okulus Bookshop (former Freaks Books Barcelona) and the inner design work by Terry Sucrana from Black Bible Books. Cover design is done by Ana Revuelto with an old Carlo’s linocut piece.

As you can see in the pictures, this is not the standard kind of sketchbook we are used to. Carlo’s choice for a powerful and wild composition of elements, in collaboration with Terry Sucrana, has been great. Not boring. Not usual. Still full of info and very easy to manage due to the measures of the book. For all these reasons we are very happy at Eclipse because this is our first collaboration with Okulus Bookshop and Publishing and the result is great. For all of You who already know Carlo and his work, you’ll also find it familiar in some way, the book itself it’s a good reflection of his attitude towards tattooing. Out of the mainstream tattoo trends, this compilation speaks for it self and shows a wide experience by the author in treating with the old icons and his own aesthetic proposals.
It’s been a privilege for me to see the early stages of this project and all the work involved in it. I know I’m not the hardest critic too! But trust me, give it a try if you already have a sketchbook collection or you want to start it someday. You can check the book out at Okulus Bookshop in Barcelona or at any of the tattoo conventions they attend during the year. I know that USA distribution has already begun. Next events where you can find it will be the Florence and Brussels tattoo conventions this next November. You can buy it online through proyectoeclipse.bigcartel.com .
