Hello! My name is Mark Wade. I have been tattooing for 12 years now, but if you really want to know, it feels like yesterday was the first awful tattoo. When I started my apprenticeship, I was fired about 50 times. I never realized they were being serious, and just kept opening and closing the shop! By staying consistent, stubborn, and painfully dedicated to being halfway decent, I found myself tattooing alongside the masters I’ve looked up to from the start.
