David Cook- Owner, Artist & Piercer
David became interested in tattooing shortly after he graduated
from highschool in 1997 when he received his first tattoo from Greg Patton and was instantly hooked. After tattooing for six
years, with his most recent employment at Sink the Ink, David finally decided to break away and open up his own studio. David
is a Tattoo Artist and has certification in Bloodborne Pathogens, First Aid and CPR.
David's favorite pieces to ink are custom work because he likes to create a design and
bring it to life. David also does the piercings at Darke Wave.
David is happily married to his highschool sweetheart and soulmate, Jaime, for 10 years and
with whom he shares two children, Cortnee and Andrew. David feels that his life has been very blessed because he has such
a wonderful family and a job that he enjoys. David believes that Darke Wave will be around for quite sometime, "We'll
be here until I retire but I doubt the shop will close then. Who knows, maybe my son will want to follow in my footsteps."
