Spotlight: Asian Inspired New School Tattoos by Jee Sayalero

Born in Venezuela in 1975, Jee Sayalero moved to Spain in 2002 to create his shop in Madrid, Human Fly Tattoo. A talented illustrator, Jee’s unique old school style allows him to inject humor and child tenderness in his Asia inspired tattoos. Influenced by comic books, cartoons and animation, his eye catching creations remind of children books illustrations. Balancing vivid colors and clever contrasts gives his tattoos a surprising depth and space, avoiding the simple flat 2D effect of this kind of design.

His tattoos are inhabited by several little anthropomorphic creatures belonging to Asian tales and he seems to have a passion for underwater life and jungles, to which he gives back their variety of colors, motion and peaceful beauty.

Jee Sayalero will be present to the Paris Tattoo Convention (Le Mondial du Tatouage) from the 7th to the 9th of March 2014.
