Hello, What’s your name and where are you based?
– My name is Daniel Blanca Lopez, but my artistic name is Danny Blanca.
I am based in La Linea de La Concepcion, a city in the Province of Cadiz in the South of Spain.
How long have you been tattooing?
– I started in October 2013, I started practicing around this time
and about the middle of 2014 I started professionally.
What is your favorite style of work?
– From childhood I have been drawn to the Realism,
so this has been my base when I started to tattoo but it is
also true that I like, that my work have a touch of comics, fantasy and colour.
How long have you been doing this style of tattooing?
– Realism , since I started tattooing, but from around 2016,
I started doing personalized designs incorporating the three styles
that I mentioned earlier.
Do you have any other interest in the world of body art, besides tattoos?
– At this moment in time my main interest is tattooing but I do not close myself to different arts.
Where would you love to travel, for work?
– In reality, I would not discard any part of the planet, because each country has a certain tattooing culture and charm, but that if I have to choose, I am drawn to USA, Switzerland, Russia and Poland.
Any future plans?
– I am in the process of opening a high end tattoo studio, in which there will not only be tattooing but also various types of arts since, I have various artistic projects in mind, that do not involve tattoos, and that is all I can disclose at this time. Hahaha!..
Do you prefer rotary or coil machine, and why?
– I have used both coil and rotary, but I definely prefer rotary, specially the pen type,
for me, they are most comfortable because I have my hand used to pencil since my youth,
and since rotarys are getting better and better, it’s a joy to work with them.
Any artist that are your biggest inspirations?
– In reality I admire the works of many artists, all the way from the classic to present day.
