Luka’s Art

Luka Barlow is a tattoo artist with a classical drawing and painting background from Laguna College of Art + Design.  When they were little, Luka wanted to be a veterinarian, marine biologist, medical/scientific illustrator, and forensic pathologist.  They have since managed to merge their simultaneous interests in organic creatures, art, science, and cutting people open… into tattooing.

Luka is also a muralist, painter, and artist for social and conservation causes.  They strive to make their booth a safe space for female-identifying and/or LGBTQIAA+ individuals who want tattoos from a queer and/or trans artist.  They provide free cover-ups to individuals with tattoos associated with neo-nazi factions, as they are Jewish, as well as the grandchild of a Holocaust survivor.

In their spare time, Luka likes to sketch at the zoo, feed animals at the zoo, talk to animals at the zoo, and drink beer at the zoo.

​Luka recently moved to Columbus to set down some roots after living in Southern California for over a decade.  They also like to tell people they are actually from Buffalo, NY so that others may know they are a real person.

You can find Luka at 1980 N. High St.
