Mandi Barnard – Charlotte, NC Tattoo Artist
My name is Mandi. I’ve been interested in art ever since I was a child. Been “ drawn“ to tattooing ever since I was 15. (Pun intended).Tattooing has become my life. Portraits have always been my main focus in art but I’ve gained a love for all different art forms as I continue in my career. Color tattoos were some of the first things I did coming out of my apprenticeship but I’ve also fallen in love with black and grey realism.Neo-traditional lady faces , illustrative and spooky tattoos are at the top of my list as well.A little more about my background is that I went to college for visual arts but when an opportunity arose to tattoo and get an apprenticeship in a shop I quickly took it. Quitting both school and my job to focus solely on tattooing . Never looking back. (Best decision I’ve ever made)My journey has just begun but my love for the craft and the community is insurmountable.
Blessed to be working amongst the best.
