WHO IS DAVID TENORIO? WHO AM I?
I grew up in Ecuador surrounded by animals and nature, listening to the history of travelers seeing shamans, tarot, and magic ... then I moved to Spain to finish school, I traveled around Europe and Berlin has been the city that has given me the most in my career. Meeting beautiful people who have helped me to continue learning and developing my career as an artist. Based on what I have learned over the years, and mixing my Latin culture, I can surely offer something different that is not taught in art school
I started tattooing when I was a young student in Spain. Once I finished school, I decided that I wanted to dedicate all my energy to follow my instinct to become an artist not only focused on tattoos but also in different aspects of art.
Today, I start my daily routine meditating and using my energy to inspire my creativity and to get fresh ideas that I can use during my working day. To give the most of my skills, concentration, and time to my clients, I only book one tattoo per day.
After years of experimenting with various elements and drawing techniques, I was able to adapt them to digital platforms such as Photoshop which allows me to provide high-quality graphics while maintaining the textures of a handmade tattoo design.
I don't have a favorite tattooing style because it is constantly changing, but I have a lot of respect and admiration for all styles out there. If I have to choose, I would say a mixture between realism and graphic, making a mixture of several styles you can get something in balance

I'm delighted with the professional work of David. He exceeded my expectations by making a great faded effect on my tattoo. Totally recommended
Very impressed with the job done at Koko Tattoo. The atmosphere is very friendly and they even shared some cocktails with me after my session. I'm already planning my next Tattoo
I was planning to get my tattoo done when I get back in the U.S. but with the corona crisis I decided to get it done in Berlin. I'm so happy with the experience at Koko. David was very patient and helped me to manage my nerves. No pain no gain :)
