Japanese tattoo and other oriental styles

I am especially inclined to Irezumi (traditional Japanese tattoo) and other Asian styles such as Tibetan, Sak Yant (Southwest Asia: Cambodia, Laos and Thailand) and themes related to Buddhism and Hinduism.
Me encantan los dragones, tigres, samuráis, flores de cerezo, lotos y peonias.

Also the mudras, mantras, mandalas, gods or demons and other characters and symbols of Asian culture.

Polynesian tattoo and other tribal tattoo styles

Over the years I have also learned to admire authentic tribal tattoos, such as those originating from Indonesia (those from Borneo, for example) and from the Pacific (Marquesan, Maori and Polynesians in general).
I like to document myself about symbology to prepare drawings that are not purely aesthetic and can tell a story.

This style of tattoo can dress very well and adapt perfectly to body shapes, highlighting the muscles or looking for a specific visual effect if you wish.

To do this, whenever I am commissioned a Polynesian-style tattoo or other similar styles, I take the client's measurements so that the drawing fits perfectly on the part of the body in question.

In the photos is Dani with her full arm, hands and fingers, chest and shoulder blade tattooed in the Marquesan style between 2018 and 2020. Made by me in Katattoomba –A Coruña.

small tattoos with love

Do you want to make a small tattoo to honor someone or something important? Or to remember a special moment?
The one who tattoos a carballo fuck, a toxo or the Tower of Hercules for the pride of his land. All the fans who wear their team's shield on their skin. The one with a tattoo in honor of a music group, a book or a movie. Those who get their dog's imprint or something cute for their cat. The shell for the pilgrim. Boxing gloves for the boxer. The five friends who come together to do the same tattoo. The mom or dad who brings a few doodles of their child to engrave on the skin. The one who marks the name of someone who is no longer there, to always have him close.

I dare to say that love in its most varied forms is what most motivates people to get tattooed.

For me it is a pleasure to be able to tattoo people who are excited about something, or want to say thank you or not forget.

All are welcome!

Large tattoos in Coruña

Ya he hecho unos cuantos tattoos de brazos, piernas y espaldas completas. Tengo mucha experiencia con esto. No me supone un problema y no me da ninguna pereza hacerlos.
I am constant and disciplined in my work and you can count on me if you need many hours and sessions to get the tattoo you want.

Common cosmetic issues with large tattoos

Before addressing this topic, I would like to emphasize that the tattoo is an artistic work where a tattoo artist and a client decide. I mean, tattooist and client dictate the aesthetic rules of the tattoo what will they do together

I do not intend to judge anyone's work and neither the taste of each one.

I speak from my perspective and experience, and the way I have found to carry out my work and remain happy with the result, taking into consideration frequent complaints of tattooed that I have known throughout my life, opinions of people who are not satisfied completely with some big tattoo they have.

Here I mean tattoos that completely cover part of the bodybe it arm, leg, torso or back.

With that said, I will list some of the common aesthetic issues with large tattoos that I seek to avoid when tattooing:
The main elements of the composition are not well distributed throughout the area that the tattoo occupies, giving the impression that everything is important in one part while others do not arouse any interest.
Susana from Nothing is forever
You can see parts that have been filled in quickly and carelessly, simply to cover a piece of skin with anything.
From a small distance, what is in the tattoo is not understood, even if it has sufficient dimensions to carry a “readable” theme at a distance of 3 meters or more.
The piece lacks contrast and this makes it difficult to see the tattoo. It can happen for different reasons. One of them could be that it is done in gray and the whole tattoo seems to have the same tone, there are no light and dark areas. Another reason could be that the colors and shades used are not appropriate for the client's skin tone.
The inner part of full arm and leg tattoos sometimes resemble the seam of patterned clothing, that is, they do not fit together visually. What you see on the inside are the margins of a drawing planned for the outside bumping up against each other when they meet on the inside of the arm or leg. There was no elaboration of an idea for the drawing to be well integrated into the internal part of the composition, which in these cases is cylindrical and not flat.
Fully tattooed arms and legs
I know how to fit elements in a cylindrical composition (arms and legs) so that all views have something interesting, and that all elements look well integrated and distributed.
Fully tattooed torso and back
If the client allows me, I use the excellent dimensions in the case of the torso or back to put a large central figure and thus take advantage of this non-existent space in other parts of the body. The result generates a great visual impact.

Tattoo coverage – Cover up

I have quite a bit of experience with tattoo coverage and feel very comfortable doing them.

To do the cover up, I first need to see the tattoo in question to know what the possibilities are to cover it up And what resources will I use?

In this case, the tattoo artist does not work on a blank canvas but on a stain and needs to follow different guidelines to make a good tattoo.

When it comes to covering up a small, worn-out tattoo, it's usually done quickly and without much trouble.

If what you want is cover up a larger or dark tattoo, things change quite a bit. It is necessary to analyze case by case to know if:
Laser sessions are needed to lighten or partially remove the unwanted tattoo. In this case I have a professional whom I totally trust and who attends in Coruña,
Susana from Nothing is forever
Define the theme and style of the new drawing. For example, various Japanese-style themes can be a good solution to cover up a tattoo. Likewise, various possibilities are always considered that can better adapt to the client's taste.
Estimate the minimum size for the new piece that will cover the old one. Almost always the piece chosen to cover the previous tattoo is larger than the old one.
Give an estimate of time to perform the coverage. We can only assess the time needed after defining the requirements listed above.
Have a rough idea of how much it will cost. It is difficult to give an accurate budget when it comes to a cover up. Tattooing on top of an already tattooed area sometimes requires two or more layers of ink to cover what's underneath.
I will be happy to help you without any kind of commitment if you need more information to decide if you want to make a tattoo cover.

In the photo related to this topic you can see the before and after of a small cover up: the coverage of three linear stars with a colored rose.

Do you want to increase, finish or integrate an old tattoo with a new one?

As with tattoo coverage, in these cases We must analyze case by case to arrive at the best solution:
If you want to increase, finish or integrate an old tattoo with a new one, and your old tattoo is done by meGo ahead, it's a matter of staying.
If another tattoo artist did it and you are not entirely happy, we could stay for you to show me the tattoo and tell me a little more, and together we will see which is the best option.
If you are happy with your old tattoo, and another tattoo artist did it, in principle I would recommend that you stay with him to continue with the piece. Even so, things are not always that simple and if for whatever reason you cannot meet him, I will be happy to talk to you and help you with whatever I can.
In the photos you can see a Japanese full sleeve tattoo that has been started by another good tattoo artist and finished by me. In this case, client and tattoo artist no longer lived in the same province.

Jorge has long ago tattooed an orange and yellow carp with cherry blossoms on his upper and outer arm, between shoulder and elbow. Since he no longer lives near the tattoo artist who did this tattoo, he chose to finish what was left of his arm with me.

I have tried to adapt to the style of the other tattoo artist instead of imposing my own. Here the most important thing was that the difference between the koi and sakura that were already there and the new ones that I put in would not be so noticeable.
