Our Story

Opened in 2010 by Grammy nominated, award winning designer, musician and tattoo artist Paul Talbot, Modern Electric quickly gained a reputation for work of a consistently high standard, in a clean, professional and friendly – no ego – environment.

In it’s new location since 2013 – just up the road from the old studio and still in Paul’s home village of Catshill it’s now also the creative home to Paul’s award winning team; Trawa Tattoo, Kerry Irvine and Beth Talbot along with regular guest artists from all over the world.

Based on a foundation of pure talent, passion for art and creative energy our aim is to provide high quality tattoos that you’ll love wearing for the rest of your life along with the highest level of customer service, for everyone – from first-timers to serious collectors.

We are craftsmen and award winners who take pride in our trade and as such we use the latest techniques, best equipment and supplies available to give you – our customer – the best possible tattoo experience.
