Eduardo Tavares de Souza

A native of Bahia, Brazil, Edu’s artistic journey began at the EAV-Parque-Lage College of Fine Arts, Rio de Janeiro, where he majored in painting and drawing. From 1992, Edu was exhibiting his work in various galleries and museums in Brazil, France, Spain and Italy.  

The art of tattooing was always present in Edu’s life. At the age of 14 years, he was making home-made hand machines and experimenting. At 15 years, he was christened with his first tattoo. In 2005 he started to learn the art of tattooing on himself. He has now dedicated his focus to the art of tattooing. He has a keen interest in customised and free-hand designs. Edu has a flexible approach, with a true ability to create different styles.
