Embroidery and tattoo are arts that require the skillful use of the needle, and the Brazilian Eduardo Doubt Lozano has combined both techniques to demonstrate his great dexterity.
The tattoos that this artist creates look like patches stuck to the skin, such as those we used in adolescence to decorate our clothes or backpacks, what memories! The difference is that they will accompany you forever.
1. More than just an artist
Doubt he lives in Sao Paulo, Brazil and more than just an artist, his friends and colleagues see him as a wise and positive person who loves his work.
2. A unique tattoo style
He used to work in a digital embroidery shop and from there his inspiration was born to create these pieces of ink and thread.
3. I wanted to do something different
According to him, to find his own style it was enough to add one plus one, that is, his passion for embroidery and his love for body art.
4. He started tattooing in 2002
His friend and mentor, Claudio Botta, saw talent in him and encouraged him to dabble in the tattoo so he would not waste his skills.
5. But he ran into his first obstacle
The tattoo was strictly controlled by the authorities and it was not easy to get quality material, so he chose to build his own machine.
6. Practice makes perfect
For Duda there is no great mystery behind this technique, all that is needed is to know the movement of the threads, understand the light and shadows and, of course, a lot of practice.
7. Stand out among so many artists
Although there are many tattoo artists who use the technique of embroidery to give a unique touch to tattoos, they do not know anyone who makes such realistic patches, because he even captures small details as out of place threads.
8. Caricatures and something else
Although he has been tattooing since 2002, he has been implementing embroidery in his pieces for a few months, so he has preferred to start with simple drawings (such as cartoons), but he hopes to experiment with more complex works soon.
9. Never satisfied
For Duda, art is not about staying in its comfort zone, but about evolving, never being satisfied with what it does, so it constantly seeks to improve.
10. He is in search of his style
Although his boom came with patch-style tattoos, he would like to make more realistic pieces and would be happy if he could combine both techniques.
11. A journey through the world
Body art has taken him all over the world and he has attended conventions in Croatia, Spain, France, Germany, Italy, Colombia and Mexico.
12. Your biggest dream
Although he has already had the opportunity to visit many countries, he does not like to conform and his great dream is to travel to every country in the world.
