The Idea

Modern Electric first opened in 2010 and we’ve been in our current location since 2013. We could tell you all about the awards we’ve won but, quite honestly, we wouldn’t expect you to either care or be impressed so instead we’ll tell you about the idea.
The idea was simply; open a friendly shop that everyone would feel comfortable in and do great tattoos for anyone who wanted one without any ego or pretentiousness. Kind of like being tattooed in friends living room – if that living room was 1500 sq ft with seven tattoo stations in it!
Modern Electric is a family owned and run business with, what I like to think is, a great atmosphere, good conversation and decent coffee. Most of us live in the village of Catshill and we’re connected to the area.
Even though we do world class, award winning tattoos and have big reputations as artists. We don’t expect everyone to be hard core tattoo fans, you might simply want to get a great tattoo in a place where you feel comfortable and welcome so we treat everyone as ‘a guest in our house’ right the way through the process from the design to the aftercare.
Whatever kind of tattoo you’re looking for you’ll find an artist who’s capable and friendly at our little shop and we hope you’ll also have a great time getting it.
Take care
Paul
