Eduardo is a 22 year old from Portugal. He specialises in multiple tattoo styles including Floral, Sketch, Japanese, Anime and more. Let's dive deeper into Eduardo, his tattoo history and his life outside of work by asking him 10 quickfire questions. He is also available to hire to bring your custom tattoo idea to life. 
Would you ever get a face tattoo?
No, never! I don't like the appearance of them personally. 
How old were you when you got your first tattoo?
I was only 16 years old and I got it on my left arm. The upper area. 
Have you ever had a customer cry from pain during a tattoo?
Yes actually! It happened during a full back piece. It was a dragon design and the customer let out a few tears during the first session. 
What style do you think will be the most trendy and popular in 2022?
I think surrealism and colour realism will gain lots of popularity.
Who is your favourite tattooist in the world? 
I look up to Deanna Art. I love her style of the colour roses she does. 
What are some of your hobbies outside of work?
I really like sport. Especially MMA. Outside of sports I enjoy normal things like music and of course, drawing!
What's your favourite thing to draw?
Roses! Anything in Japanese is always fun to sketch. I also enjoy drawing roses, skulls and anime characters. 
Have you ever tattooed yourself?
Yes I have many times. There is around 12 tattoos on my legs that I did myself! I think it's common for tattooists to have this experience. 
Drawing on a tablet or drawing on paper?
Why should people hire you to draw their custom tattoo design?
I am fast, creative and I love challenges. I love being able to give people the gift of art. Send me a message and let's see if we can work together!
