My name is Dave Wah and I want to thank you for taking the time to view my tattoo portfolio. I am a tattoo artist at Stay Humble Tattoo Company in Baltimore, Maryland. I've always wanted to create a tattoo shop in Baltimore and I've been working tirelessly to grow my business. When it comes to my work I am not afraid to admit that I want to be the best tattoo artist not only in Baltimore or Maryland, but in the entire world. I've been recognized by The Baltimore Sun as one of "Baltimore's best tattoo artists" and I've been featured in countless magazines and interviews; I've also won many awards for my work. Those things mean nothing without the amazing clients I get to work with everyday. Tattooing is one of the few art forms where the artist relies on another person to make their work come to life. The people that come to me for their tattoos have done their research. They've put a lot of thought into their tattoo idea, and they expect nothing but the best. They want to leave the shop knowing their tattoo is something unique. I put a lot of time and thought into every project, and given the opportunity to work with you I will prove to you why people travel from DC, Virginia, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey and all over the east coast to get their tattoos from me. I work hard. Really hard. You deserve it, your tattoo demands it, and I will not accept anything less from myself. My tattoo style tends to be a blend of bold color, sharp contrast, and intricate line work. I also do black and grey portrait tattoos. Most of my work is illustrated realism, which is a blend of stylized images with some realistic aspects. I also enjoy doing neo-traditional, japanese traditional, and american traditional tattoos. I appreciate your interest in my tattoos and I look forward to working with you in the future.

MY BOOKS ARE CURRENTLY CLOSED:
The next scheduling period will begin FEBRUARY 2016. If you are interested in getting tattooed by me you can send me an email or message with your idea. I'll get back to you as soon as I can and let you know if it's something I can do for you. I'll start setting up consultatons and appointments in February. Thank you to everyone who participated in my most recent booking period, I somehow managed to book 6 months of appointments in just over 3 weeks. If you already have a consultation scheduled, or if we are in the process of scheduling a consultation you are all good. If you already have your appointment scheduled with me you are obviously good to go for your tattoo. If you have any questions regarding the scheduling process feel free to email me with your questions.
As I've mentioned before, I will be VERY selective when it comes to the projects I take on. If I turn down your project, please do not be offended or insulted. I am just trying to prioritize my life with a busy schedule and family life.
Regular clients will have priority over new clients. Here are some of the tattoo styles and subjects I would like to focus on:
Illustrated realism, neo-traditional, and american traditional tattoos. I've also become interested in traditional Japanese tattooing.
As far as subject matter, here are a handful of things I'd like to focus on:
Anything with eyes
Illustrated portrait tattoos
Girl Head tattoos
Lions, tigers, bears, wolves etc.
Any classic tattoo imagery
Black and grey portrait tattoos
Dog portrait tattoos
I look forward to hearing your ideas, and I can't wait to start some new tattoo projects over the next part of the year. If your idea isn't on the list above you can still email me and I'll let you know what I think.
