Dave is the owner of Southside Tattoo in Baltimore, Maryland and he’s made a career of turning tattoo ideas into kickass works of art. Recently, however, he’s been doing something better.
Earlier this year, he had a man come in and ask him if he could help him remove gang tattoos from his face. They guy was hurting and all he wanted to do was to be a productive part of society. He had a job, he had a family, and he wanted to forget this part of his life, but he still looked like a gangster.
At the time, Dave couldn’t help. Removing an unwanted tattoo is an expensive, time-consuming process, but after speaking to the man for 45 minutes, he was moved. After talking to his wife, she told him “Dave, you can help people”
