Welcome to my little corner of the website! Here on my page you’ll (hopefully) find all the info you need to get a tattoo from me. Honestly, it’s not that difficult but if you have any more questions either use the contact form on this site or at the bottom of the FAQ section on this page. Ta.

In a sea of 'sameness' his instantly recognisable style - that combines street art influences with contemporary portraiture and graphic design - emerges as a fresh voice with a clear vision. The underlying theme of his work speaks to a far broader audience. He gives us permission to not wait for the stars to align. If the road doesn't exist, make your own.


Hopefully, this section will answer all your initial questions but, if it doesn’t, please feel free to drop me a line with any extra questions you may have using the button below

What's your process?

Initially, please email me a rough outline of your ideas/themes along with placement, size and photos of the area you want me to tattoo to: paul@modernelectric.tattoo

Email is hard to get you idea over fully so I only need enough of your idea at this point to allow me to decide if its a project that I want to take on. It’s more important that I know if the area requires a cover or if you have other work that I need to add to etc.

I don’t make any artwork in advance. I make all my artwork on the day of your first appointment. This can take a few hours or all day depending on the size and scope of the piece and it’s why ALL my appointments for custom work require a minimum of 2 appointments. Tattooing for me is all about putting the right artwork on EVERY client and I find that this process allows you to get involved with your artwork and for me to get a better idea of what it is you’re after without email getting in the way etc.

Once both we’re both happy to proceed all you have to do is pay £300 booking fee which will be deducted from the final cost of your tattoo. Karen is available via email to help you with any questions you may have in the run up to your first appointment and beyond.

Can I just pick a piece of your artwork?

Of course many of my clients just want a piece of my artwork and that’s awesome! So I keep a stock of images that you can choose from to either use as a starting point for your idea or simply have ‘as is’. It’s totally up to you. These designs are on my website but they’re hidden in a ‘client only’ area and are perfect if your budget will only stretch to a single day as they are already designed. These are the ONLY designs I can do in a single day.

If you want to take a look at them Karen will send you a link and the password when she sends you your booking confirmation.

I want to get tattooed at a convention or guestspot

I’m not currently doing many conventions or guest spot etc as I prefer to just work at my studio. It’s comfortable and the coffee is (generally) better. As long as Lucasz isn’t making it 😉

If you want to get tattooed by me while I’m at a convention or at a guest spot please join my mailing list – the signup is »HERE«

I announce all my travel plans, special projects to my mailing list FIRST. I don’t send many emails (1 a month) so you wont be inundated with crap from me! Just mostly shop news, stuff about travel, artwork and discounted sessions/flash days at the shop.

What is your day rate?

For appointments at my studio in the UK my day rate is £600 

Like Andy Warhol art dragged thru 20yrs of dirty rehearsal rooms & beer soaked punk gigs.

How do I contact you?

There are 2 different emails you can contact me on.

info@modernelectrictattoo.co.uk is checked by my long suffering wife and partner in crime – Karen. We primarily use this email to answer travel, booking & general enquiries. It’s checked everyday throughout the day (because Karen is very efficient!) So if you need a quick answer to any question this is the best email to use.

The other way of contacting me is to my personal email: paul@modernelectric.tattoo. This email is primarily for discussing artwork/theme ideas with me direct as it’s the email address on my phone etc. I usually answer any messages at the end of the day because I have gloves on for most of the daylight hours so you’ll have to bear with me!

How long is your waiting list?

I try to keep my waiting list to around 6-9 months. Because any more than that kind of freaks me out and it’s a total pain for clients!

Where are you based?

I’m based at The Modern Electric Tattoo Co. Just south of Birmingham at: 147 Golden Cross Lane, Catshill, Bromsgrove, B61 0JZ UK.
