Hello, thank you for visiting me. My name is Andrew Barnette. I am the owner/artist of Lucky Devil Tattoo in beautiful Ft.Walton Beach, Florida. If you care to read a little further, I present a brief synopsis of ...me.
For as far back as I can remember I've been on the edge of life; wild and reckless growing up. I was the kid who wanted to play punk and metal music as loud as I could, probably because someone said I couldn't.
Even though my mom hoped I'd grow up to be a doctor or lawyer, it was no great surprise that I turned out as a tattoo artist. My parents would say, "That figures."
I was born St. Patrick's Day, 1978. In that year, a gallon of gas cost 63 cents, Jimmy Carter was President, and the launch of Space Invaders crazed arcades across America.
I've been tattooing professionally since 2005, but was influenced by the industry and life-style at a young age. It came like an epiphany. I stumbled into a situation and got tattooed. It was love at first sight and I've never looked back from it.
I've always had a great love for art, in all of its forms. The human spirit is reflected in the creation and manifestation of emotion. What a privilege it is to create visual, emotional conception on the living canvas. For me, there's always been a lingering awe that someone would trust another person to decorate their body permanently. It's a commitment. Once you've been tattooed you're never the same.
With that being said, before you get tattooed; think about what and where you want your new ink. Do some research and find references. You'll want as many details as you can muster. Then bring what you have and believe. I'll take care of the rest.
I never compromise quality. I want my clients to feel satisfied with the work I do; and hopefully make a new friend. Mostly, I just love to tattoo. I can't imagine doing anything else. It's been a great passion in my life; and so far a hell of a roller-coaster ride.
So gather your ideas! Bring your vision and let me make it a reality.
