Actor, former WWE legend and certified dog daddy Dave Bautista is planning to open his own tattoo shop in Tampa.
Speaking via an Instagram video yesterday, the “Guardians of The Galaxy” star announced that his new shop will be called DC Society Ink, which is a play on his personal mantra “Dream Chaser” and the fact he’s from the Washington D.C. area.
“This place, in two or three months, will be my very own tattoo shop,” said Bautista, who added that he’s actually a partner with his own tattoo artist, John Kural of 2 Extreme Tattoos. “We’re turning this dream into a reality, it's going to be an experience,” says Bautista.
The actor says they’re currently looking for artists who want to be involved with the project, which plans to launch sometime in January of 2022. An exact location was not unveiled, however Bautista says its close to The University of Tampa.
