The Art of Tattooing with Taiom

Barcelona is music and color and late nights. From lights strung between narrow alleyways to sunbathers soaking up the rays on Barceloneta Beach, it has a festive and fun atmosphere that few cities in the world can replicate. We love the unmistakable Gaudi architecture that asserts itself all over the city, as well as the charming, vibrant neighborhood of Gracia. Stroll the streets of Barcelona’s many quarters, from the artsy El Ravel to the historic Born, and feel the city’s distinct pulse around you.

Meet the Artist

Taiom is a Brazilian tattooist and visual artist working between the cities of Barcelona, Bologna and Florence. He fell in love with tattoo culture at a young age, and has been practicing ever since then. Over the last decade and a half, Taiom has developed his own unique, highly graphic style of tattooing focused on abstract concepts. Inspired by his love of drawing and woodworking, his tattoo techniques include sketch lines, watercolors, fine lines, black work, and detail. He approaches each work like a story helping people create body art that brings something about who they are to life on their skin. Tat a tat!
