Customer Reviews

I went for my first ever tattoo this week at Modern electric and as this was my first time I had no idea what to expect. I was greeted by a really friendly team when I got there and was made to feel very welcome. I had a fine line tattoo booked with Beth, who greeted me and showed me the design that was even better than I imagined. She explained the process to me and was overall brilliant. The atmosphere in there is really relaxed and friendly and I couldn’t recommend them any more, I will be going back there in the future!

The atmosphere in this place is just awesome, no attitude at all. A wonderful bunch of talented artists, covering all styles. You can not go wrong visiting this studio, I'd move in if I could! Very welcoming, and of an exceptional standard.

Vicki Ruston

Had my fingers done by Jay, was very happy with his work. Great atmosphere and great team too!

Richard Ainsworth

Having been tattooed here now for the forth time, I have nothing but positive feedback. The service especially now in the covid 19 era was spot on. Being in for a day sitting you interact with everyone in the studio and all make you feel at ease. Would recommend for sure and will certainly be back.

Had a piercing here done by chel. Welcoming environment. Awesome tattoo studio and Chel is just brilliant as always. Thank you very much highly recommended 🙂

Sarah Ashford

After waiting 4 years to find 'the' artist I saw Paul's banner at a tattoo convention. Booked in, and couldn't have received better artwork, from the most genuine, interesting guy I have ever met, Mr. Paul Talbot. I'm so glad I waited so long for my first - he is simply a genius. The shop is so welcoming and relaxing - all staff are incredible. I therefore returned for my second, and need my only gripe is he isn't nearer!!! Get booked in, it's worth the wait, 10 fold.

Lee Anderson

Just a fantastic experience all around. From my
first visit to discuss what I wanted with Lukasz through to the design and the finished tattoo, I couldn’t have been happier. Great bunch of people with immense talent and skills, already got ideas for my next one which I’m hoping Paul can design and create for me. Simply put I wouldn’t go anywhere else

Had my conch pierced by Chel. I'm over the moon with it. Chel was super friendly and caring. I mentioned to her that I’m a bit of a wimp with pain and she took the time to talk through each step and reassured me throughout. I’ll be back for more definitely. Thank you so much Chel 😊 Highly recommended.

Sara Allmark

I have been wanting to get a tattoo for a while since my last was 10 years ago and what amazing service I had from Beth. I have to stress it was a painless experience and I felt so at ease in the studio and with Beth. She designed exactly what I wanted and it has already healed up so well only 24 hours after having it done. I highly recommend an extremely talented lady 💕

Sophie Kang

Paul and Karen Talbot runs the best tattoo shop I have ever had the pleasure of visiting. Friendly and professional, coming here is like going to visit a couple of friends. They really go all out to give you an experience rather than a visit. Highly recommended

Would thoroughly recommend for any type of piercing. My whole family go to Chel for piercings - and we simply would never go to anyone else! Chel is the best. Absolutely gorgeous jewellery too 🙂

Karen Reynolds

Brilliant the whole way through the process, made me feel very at ease and confident. Artwork is incredible and I cannot fault in any way. Would 100 percent recommend to anyone and everyone and will definitely be back for more!

Caitlin Vries

A friend recommend here for a piercing,so I booked my son & daughter in for their first ear lobe piercing. Paid our deposit to secure our booking,filled in our consent form day before the piercing. Tattoo shop was nicely decorated & very clean. When we arrived we was greeted by Dexter the friendliest dog. Chel was very professional & answered any questions we had,kept us informed throughout the whole process. My daughter wants more piercings & we will definitely return for Chel to do them. Thankyou for a calm,professional & pleasant experience. Will recommend & return.

I have been calling and emailing tattoo studios and getting no response for a while now - But i contacted these yesterday and on the same day they got back to me (during lockdown) and found someone who can do what i need. Really helpful and looking forward to going in once they're back open for a consultation with Beth. Thanks again 🙂 xx

Jade Love Mulraney

The last time I had a tattoo Beth wouldn’t have even been born! But don’t let her youth fool you - Beth is a highly talented tattooist. She has the maturity and wisdom to know which commissions compliment her art style and which do not.

I’ve been wanting to get this piece done for a long time. It’s very personal to me and I wanted to be sure that I found the right artist. Beth did an amazing job and I can’t wait to see the piece fully healed.

She also had a great manner and I was calm and relaxed throughout the 3 hour session. Seeing me on a Sunday was also incredibly accommodating. I’m already planning a second complimentary design for Beth to carry out and I’m popping back in soon to finish off some shading on this design.

Would also like to say how impressed I was with the cleanliness, decor and layout of Modern Electric. It’s great to support this local independent business after what has surely been a challenging through months for their industry.

I was told about modern electrical tattoo shop by some friends and they had done a fantastic job of my friends tattoos so I decided to book in, I booked in with Lucas and he did an amazing job of my tattoo, he sent me a picture of what he had designed for me before my appointment and it was amazing, I love my tattoo

Ashley Grasham

Absolutely first class from start to finish. Great customer service, quick replies to emails, friendly professional staff, amazing tattooists and great aftercare. I cannot recommend The Modern Electric Tattoo Co highly enough.


Paul and his team are awesome, wonderful artists, and a nice relaxed atmosphere. Very clean, knowledgeable, and professional. Looking forward to going back for another session!

Sophie Townsend - nee Gwyn-Smith

This place has a real energy and soul . Great people , great ethic excellent energy.


Paul Talbot is a genius. Ridiculously talented artist.


My 7 year old daughter got her ears pierced here and Chel was amazing. She was even kind enough to help us out 3 days later when my daughter lost and earring and we weren't able to get it back. She sorted it out in no time. She even pierced the ear of the Teddy she'd bought with her to help her feel more at ease. 10/10

Richard Gough

Thank you Chel for my new piercing! I would absolutely recommend her to anyone, so worth the wait knowing she’s a highly experienced piercer 🙏🏻 Chel is so lovely and puts you at ease. Will most definitely be back 😅

Alicia Reams

Great Tatoo Studio, friendly and welcoming artists, fantastic vibes inside, incredible work produced, and a very good cuppa.
Would not go anywhere else.

Toby Blackman

Amazing service all round! Great communication when booking, very talented artists! Extremely happy with the outcome!. I had some tattoos and piercings and received great care from both Chel and Beth who made sure I was comfortable throughout, advised me on aftercare, talked me through any questions I had and just overall made the experience great! I will definitely be visiting again!:)

Megie Peggy

I go and see Chel regularly for my tattoo removal treatment. Chel is very professional, friendly and puts you at ease. She won't even entertain treatment before she's gone through every detail to ensure you don't have any regrets when starting the process. I wouldn't go anywhere else.

I have also had a number of piercings with Chel and even took my best friends daughter to have her ears pierced too. She's brilliant with the kids to make sure they know what's going to happen and makes it a really pleasant experience for them.

Don't go to anyone that pierces you with a gun or to someone who will tell you laser treatment will be a short process. It's all dependent on your body and how it responds to treatment. Go and see her - you won't be disappointed. Her prices are very reasonable and she has a beautiful selection of jewellery.

Gemma Jones

Had my first tattoo done with Beth, was really happy with everything! She was super friendly and patient, let me change the size/placement a couple of times until I was happy. The studio was clean and very nice inside. Overall, I love my tattoo, a great place to go and I will defo book with Beth again in the future! 🙂


Awesome place, great tattooists, very friendly, definitely recommend 👍👍👍

Scott Ryl

Came here yesterday and was so pleased with the work. All artists made me feel welcome and were welcoming. Relaxed funny atmosphere and a great place. I wont use nowhere else now. Highly recommend 👌🏻

Martyn Roberts

Me and all my friends (7 of us) have been to modern electric to receive tattoos, mostly from Beth, I cannot believe the amount of professionalism compared to other studios and such reasonable prices, Beth and all the other artists are so talented and I will not be going anywhere else in the future! Aswell as this, Chel has been my piercer for years (has done 5 so far) and I’ve never felt so comfortable and trusting, she takes her time and shows a selection of jewellery to make sure her clients are 100% happy and even changed my jewellery for free when I was having trouble, I love going to see chel for a new piercing every now and then, I cannot recommend this studio enough, everyone is so friendly and it’s such a well rounded place full of talent, Thankyou so much guys!

Kerys Smith

Second to none. I travel nearly a two hundred mile round trip to get tattooed here and have no intention of going anywhere else. Great place with great people.
