    i was tattooed by Chad while visiting the area, he was great. amazing tattooing hand & very polite. my piece came out amazing and he finished impressively fast. i was impressed also with how the shop was handling covid because some other shops have huge crowds, which i wasn't comfortable with. very clean shop.

    I got my first tattoo today from Chad at Western Electric. He did a fantastic job and was a true professional. He took his time to get it right and make sure he had the color just right. I have no hesitation recommending Chad and Western Electric.

    My lady and I got a chance to link up with Dan @Western Electric and could not have been happier with our first Tattoo experience. We came in later in the evening, maybe 20 min until "closing" according to Google and he had no issue in accommodating our needs. What we didn't expect to happen was spending the next 2 hours hanging out and talking life, philosophy and tattoo experiences with the man as he catered to us with refreshments. Our ink itself was exactly what we'd hoped for and he kept it real with ideas and placement that saved me from a mistake, something not every Tattoo artist is willing to do. All in all, a solid man with a steady hand - Dan is your man.
