David Lang was born in Juneau and raised in Southeast Alaska until moving to Washington State in his early teens. A commercial artist since 2001, David moved back to Juneau in 2009 to open High Tide Tattoo and seized the opportunity to reconnect with his Tsimshian heritage, shifting his focus and studies to the Indigenous art of the Northwest Coast with an emphasis on Tsimshian language and culture.
