JOEY

My name is Joey Hulsey, I am the owner of Villa Rica Ink. I am a tattoo artist and piercer. A good friend Eddy Miller got me into tattooing, taught me what I needed to know and got me on the right track to be the tattoo artist that I am today. I still learn every day and that will never stop. I am Christian and Jesus comes first in my life then my amazing, hot wife Samaria and my 4 boys, then my shop. I was a youth pastor for 17 years and a worship leader for most of that time as well. I still play drums at my church..

EDDY

I was Born in Miami Fl. and raised mostly in Georgia where I decided to make my permanent home. I am a dedicated family man, married 13 years to my wife Tamara and the proud father of 5 amazing sons Kristopher, Tyler, Canaan, Aiden and Gavin. Like any other man, I love to play with my toys, anything from motorcycles to classic cars or anything that you can do something stupid with or on! I began drawing as a child. Art was my escape from reality or at least my reality at the time. I happened to walk into a tattoo shop sometime in the late eighties which was owned by a friend of a friend Jeff LaFond. During a conversation a buddy of mine mentioned that I was into art. Jeff ask to see some of my artwork and after fumbling through it for about 45 minutes he ask if I would be interested in apprenticing. Now Jeff was quite a character and had some off beat quirks, but he did give me a strong base in the fundamentals of tattooing and machine building, luckily Big Ron the owner of New Needle Tattoo took a liking to me and helped me fill in all the blanks. I’m very thankful to Jeff and Ron both for taking the time to teach me a trade that allows me to do something I love so deeply as a career. I pretty much enjoy all styles of tattooing; if I really had to choose, I prefer photo realism, pseudo realism or new school art, but really just the opportunity to share the experience in effort to bring the customers vision to life is what it’s about for me.

If you were to give me the freedom to tattoo anything I want, I would most definitely lean toward horror images. Why horror you might ask? Well that has to be accredited to my mother, “God rest her soul” and many weekends spent engulfed in our horror movie marathons. I guess that was her way of keeping me around the house and out of possible trouble. It worked some of the time lol… Now in present time I just try to stay focused on trying to increase my artistic ability and spending time with family and friends..

If you want an awesome traditional or video game related tattoo I’m your man! I have been tattooing since 2009, I worked in the Marietta / Woodstock area for five and a half years then moved here about a month after the Grand opening. I lovem the shop, my co-workers and our clientS.
