Stay Humble with Dave Wah: The Exclusive Tattoo Snob Interview

May 21st, 2014 by Kevin -

       

I generally excited about everything that’s posted on Tattoo Snob, but I’m really excited about my interview with Dave Wah. Dave has been killing it for a long time, and he recently opened Stay Humble Tattoo Company in Baltimore, Maryland. I shot Dave a handful of questions about his tattooing, opening up a new shop, who inspires him, and what else he has lined up for 2014.
This interview is a must read. If you’re anything like me, you’ll be checking flight prices and planning a tattoo getaway to Baltimore by the end of the interview.

This sleeve below was a work in progress for over a year. I was lucky enough to see the piece take place, and watch progress month by month. Even though I got to see it first hand, the final product was still jaw dropping. We caught up with Russ Abbott and asked him a few questions about the project, large tattoo projects in general, and how soon you can get a tattoo by Russ.

When we talk about pop culture references in tattooing, the name Zane Donnellan should ring a bell — but you’re more likely to know him as Gooney Toons, the cartoon tattoo wunderkind hailing from STR Body Modifications in Wyong, NSW, Australia.

The Danny Derrick Interview

November 12th, 2013 by Julene Huffman -

       

I’ve been following Danny’s work for years, and finally crossed paths with him this summer. I’ve always admired his hard work and approach to the art, and I’m proud we’re featuring his work on Tattoo Snob. I always knew that Danny was one of the good guys in tattooing, and this interview does nothing if not reinforce that.
