Had my first tattoo done here. During my healing time I felt worried about a couple of things and returned to the shop to get some aftercare advice.
It is a real shame that Brian- (the owner) is allowed to deal with customers. For one thing- he won??t treat you like one. Brian instantly assumed I was complaining about my tattoo. Before listening to my questions- he told me that I shouldn??t have got my tattoo in the first place and that I would regret ever having it done- (which is not a nice thing to hear days after being inked) He then went on to tell me that women with my kind of tattoo look ??dirty?? and can??t get jobs.
After actually looking at my tattoo he said it was ??three quarters done?? and incomplete
I left the shop feeling extremely upset by Brian- he has no customer service skills.
I now have to find another artist to finish the job properly...

I have been to many piercing studios in the Valley (to get pierced and buy jewelry), and had always had mediocre experiences at best. So, when I knew I was ready for another piercing, I decided to do some research before choosing the location this time. All of the reviews I read about Body Electric were exceptional, so I decided to give them a try. It was all true! The minute we walked in, we were warmly greeted by Brian (the shop owner). Although I didn't have an appointment, I was able to see James within 15 minutes, and he was everything that I had read he was! So professional, so sweet, so patient, so accomodating...I could keep going : ) I was REALLY nervous about this piercing, but James explained the entire process to me, and answered ALL of my questions before I even committed to getting it done. They have a great jewelry selection, also, and Brian and James helped me choose the right size and detail for what I wanted. The piercing studio is secluded from the tattoo area, so it's completely private, which I definitely appreciated! Before we started, he talked me through it a little more, so when the time finally came...I was SO at ease. He promised the actual piercing would be over before I could realize what happened. So, while having me do some deep breathing, he pierced me...and kept his promise! It was so quick and easy, James made ALL the difference in the experience. Afterward, he went over care instructions with me (twice!) and even gave me some tips to make the healing process a little more comfortable. James went above and beyond to make sure that I was comfortable and satisfied, and I would recommend him to EVERYONE who's looking to get pierced. I'm sure I'll want more piercings in the future, and I now I won't be going anywhere beside Body Electric!!

Cons: Melrose parking (and nothing else!)

Great vibe, wonderful people working. I have always gotten a hello or be right with you even when they are super busy.
I was referred to James by Chris at Outer Limits Tattoo in Anaheim. He has been my piercer for the past 5 years. I needed a shop close to my new spot in Hollywood, just in case.... of course one day lost one of my surface bars in my sleep.
I rushed to James, but he was on vacation, so I had the pleasure of having Brian pierce me. I was nervous Because I have been going to the same person for years. Brian was great, calmed me down and dare I say PERFECTLY placed and drooped in my jewelry. It lined up perfect, sat flush, I have not had any problems what so ever.
I have gone back seen James and Brian for more work and more jewelry. Great spot to go, you can ask lots of questions, friendly helpful staff that just wants you to be happy.

For my first professional piercings, I chose Body Electric Tattoo & Piercing. I've been contemplating these piercings for over a year now, and after much research, I'm overjoyed with my experience. As with previous reviewers, I found James to be wonderful - he was patient, understanding, and approached all aspects of the piercings with great care and clinical precision - it was exactly what I needed considering the nature of my piercings. I appreciated his step-by-step explaination, as well as the on-site disinfecting process. James continually changed his gloves (VERY important to me) and was conscious of gauging my reaction. And most importantly, the skill involved truly lives up to James' rule of "No guns allowed".

Wonderful staff, very high-quality jewelry, a definite you-get-what-you-pay-for experience. Now I'm just looking for a excuse for my next piercing.

Seriously skilled Tattoo Artists. From start to finish these guys know how to get it done. I came in with an idea of what I wanted and they made it come to life. Might have been a little more money than expected but it was well worth it.

If you are a local or in from out of town, they are serious about what they do and I would fly back to LA for a repeat.

Had my conches pierced here, and they really know what theyre doing. Very clean and professional! They really take the time to line things up perfect, and get a second opinion from other tattoist/piercer before anything is done.

Pros: Very clean, professional, and friendly.

This place is wonderful. I was looking for a shop to get some regular earlobe piercings for my girlfriend on a Sunday night. I first went to some other tatoo shop on melrose and they directed me to Body Electric.

We had to wait awhile since this place was fully busy on a late Sunday night ! Eventually, Brian came out and did a stellar job of piercing for us. He was very friendly and easy to talk to. My girl was very nervous and he put her to ease right away. She didn't feel a thing.

Now she lovely shiny titanium earrings and we couldn't be happier. We didn't get an tats, so I can't really speak first hand about that. However, there was a cool dude getting some star tats up and down his torso. If I ever decided to get some tats, this would be the first place I would go!

About a month ago decided to get my first tattoo. Wanted a special message done in Japanese Kanji characters. Wanted to get it down on Melrose - - always figured that's where the real pros were; although I didn't want to just walk into some random joint & end up regretting the results the rest of my life. Read a lot of reviews online & by far the most consistently positive ones were for Body Electric.

I can honestly say that the reviews and my experience matched EXACTLY. The staff are really, really friendly and patient. Taka, the artist who worked with me, took a lot of time to help me make sure that I got exactly what I wanted, then he proceeded to do a fabulous job on my tattoo. THANKS BODY ELECTRIC!!!

This place is absolutely amazing! Brian, Taka, James and all of the guys at Body Electric make you feel right at home the second you step inside the shop, not to mention it is the cleanest tattoo piercing shop I have ever set foot in. I am an ad exec so I was in a suit and tie most of the times we met, and they did not make me feel like a square! My tattoo process took a long time, figuring out a design that was perfect for me, but Taka really took his time and created a masterpiece. Something better than the picture I had in my head. I love my new tattoo, and I can't say enough about the staff at Body Electric. There was a fire recently, so the windows are boarded up BUT THEY ARE STILL OPEN!! I just got my tat in late Feb. Thanks Body Electric!

I got my belly pierced a while ago but the first person that did it didn't do it right, so I came here to get it redone. I showed the previous job to James and he fixed it without a problem. They also have a great selection of jewelry. Their rings don't have those ridges on them like most rings that can irritate the piercing sometimes.

I am not what you would consider a 'piercing expert' by a long shot, and will admit that a bit wimpy on the pain tolerance level,,, however, i decided to get my nipples pierced a few years ago and one of them was not done correctly. When i finally got the nerve to have it re-done, i had a very bad experience at the 2009 Tattoo and Body Expo event in Pomona,.... which still left me needing to get the piercing re-done AND in pain. I did some research and found Body Electric and decided to try.

I was beyond nervous but James put me at ease immediately and was very professional, and the piercing is healing much better than i ever dreamed, EVEN considering the previous weekend's trauma inflicted at the expo.

Never thought i would want any other piercings (due to the wimp thing) but am going back tonight to see him and get my next piercing.

I highly recommend him to anyone considering a piercing, he is THE BEST!

Having never pierced my ears with anything but a gun before, i can honestly say i was anxious to get a 10 gauge needle pierced through both my ears. I was not only relaxed by the friendly and personalized service, but i was enthralled as to the extent of their knowledge. If you want good service, a calm PAIN FREE experience, and a piercing u can be proud of, i would highly recommend going here. My piercing was done flawlessly by James, who works on tuesdays through saturdays, but the other guys seem really chill as well.

I would highly recommend this shop all right! I was flying in to LA In Sept. for a short vacation and wanted a "souvenir" of sorts. I contacted the shop and Brian wrote me back within the next couple days to let me know they would accommodate my schedule for a new tat while I was in town. The shop is in a more eclectic part of West Hollywood- sort of on the fringe- where you could find just about anything you want, or could imagine. But it was plenty safe. Parking is a bit of a challenge, so be sure to leave a little extra time to scout down a spot in that neighborhood.
The shop is extremely clean and well kept. I loved the attention to detail in the vintage pieces throughout the shop. I am very pleased with my new piece- no doubt this shop pays attention to good talent and it seriously was the fastest healing tat I've ever gotten (this being my 14th). Thanks so much to Body Electric for a fantastic experience!

I recently went to get the "Marilyn Monroe" piercing at Body Electric. I found it through the Google search engine under, "Top piercing parlor in Los Angeles." Without a doubt, this is the BEST place to get a piercing. As soon as I walked in I was assisted and felt welcome. I was very nervous about the piercing and was sweating, my heart was pumping out of my chest, I was shaking, and just COMPLETELY overtaken with nerves. The owner, who was doing the piercing, immediately made me feel at ease and safe. He sterilized the needles and utensils when I got there opposed to before, so that I saw them being sterilized and knew that they were clean(for 8 minutes). Once in the chair, he was very precise and careful as to where the hole was going to be and making sure that the clamp on my face was exact. IT DIDN'T EVEN HURT!!!! He was extremely careful and calming. He was THE BEST.
Also, I have a tattoo, and was asking him about getting other tattoos. He told me, "I only hire the best of the best. Not just anyone can work here at Body Electric." His artists were wonderful, his store was very well put together, and his jewelry was very "top-shelf". I refer any and EVERYone to Body Electric. You will be sure to have a great experience.

I've been into Body Electric a number of times and everytime have had great service! Everyone is very friendly and very helpful! I have bought many pierces of body jewelry from Body Electric as they have a very large selection and many custom pieces you can't find other places. James did a surface piercing on each of my wrists which I had already heard were heard to heal. The process was actually quick and not as painful as I would have expected. James is definately one of the most respected and professional body piercers in LA and Body Electric is a very clean and enjoyable environment. My wrist piercings lasted over 2 years and never had any problems! I had to take them out for work reasons but they left little to no scars either. James can do just about any proceedure and I would definately recommend Body Electric over any other piercing shop in LA. I have also gotten tattooed here a number of times and have always been happy with what I recieved!!

I recently got my monroe pierced by the amazing James at Body Electric. Scared, nervous, and a little unsure about getting a facial piercing James approached the situation like that of nothing less than a pro. He was very warm, friendly, and comforting making not only this piercing a breeze but also making him the ONLY piercer I will ever go to. Not only was James a dream to work with, but the staff is a blast and extremely professional. The location and shop itself had a relaxing vibe surrounded by great shopping. I highly recommend James to do any piercing or modification you have in mind he truly is one of the industry's best. He'll leave you walking out of the shop with a job well done and a huge smile every time. :)

I just got my tongue pierced by james a few days ago. I was so nervous and completely freaking out. But James walked me through the whole process and made me feel really comfortable! The actual parlor was immaculately clean and sanitary. They clean and sterilize the tools right in front of you so you know for a fact that they are sterile. I would highly recommend Body Electric to anyone considering a tattoo or a piercing.
I will definitely be going back!

Mike Jones, Mike Jones, MIKE JONES. The best tattoo artist I have ever met! Before discovering Body Electric, I had been a victim of some pretty tragic looking tattoos .... but now they've all been touched up by Mike and they look AMAZING. He puts in a lot of effort and care to give you what you want ... his artwork is so beautiful and realistic AND he's super nice (had a charming southern accent too)! Actually, everyone I met at the shop that day were really friendly and chill .... great atmosphere overall. I'll admit that at first I thought it was a little pricey and I was hesitant to have mine done but now I've realized that they were worth every penny ..... I actually miss the shop and I'm already thinking about when I can come back to get some more ink done! I'm just amazed from the experience I had with Mike doing my tattoos ... I sat for over 4 hours and it was practically painless and I was barely bleeding. My experiences from the other shops can be summarized by a lot of bleeding, pain, and scabbing. Now after only a few days, my tats are barely scabbing, still vibrant in color, and not even sore! So don't waste your time and money on any other tattoo/piercing parlor ... Body Electric is by far the #1 place to go!!

Mike Jones, Mike Jones, MIKE JONES. The best tattoo artist I have ever met! Before discovering Body Electric, I had been a victim of some pretty tragic looking tattoos .... but now they've all been touched up by Mike and they look AMAZING. He puts in a lot of effort and care to give you what you want ... his artwork is so beautiful and realistic AND he's super nice (had a charming southern accent too)!

Just last weekend I made a trip to The Body Electric to have my Nape pierced by James. The staff is amazing, very friendly and nothing but professional. I was greeted by James who makes you feel completely comfortable with the process. He showed me different styles of jewelery and explained why they are the best to use. His advice really paid off and the piercing itself had very minimal pain and no bleeding, swelling of any sort. Now a week later my Nape is healing so well! No tension, tugging, or rejection. The placement is perfect, making every day movement unnoticeable to my piercing. I've never met a more knowledgeable piercer and would recommend everyone to the Body Electric for work. This was the 2nd piercing I've had done by James and would say it's my number one choice of shop in Los Angeles.

I had been planning on going to Body Electric since the beginning of the summer. I knew I was finally ready to get a helix piercing, and decided a few months ago to eyebrow pierced as well. Seeing as I'd only gotten my lobes pierced a few years ago, I was terrified. Waiting all summer to get the piercings didn't help much either. As soon as I saw James, though, I knew I was in good hands because of all the wonderful things I'd read about him, plus, you know he's a pro just by looking at him ;) My best friend was in the room with me while I had my piercings done and said she was more nervous than I was. I was really expecting at least one, if not both of them, to hurt like hell, but I was wrong. They were so quick I didn't have time to process any pain! I'm so glad I listened to all the reviews. I'd go here for anything.

I've been to many different Tattoo & Piercing shops, but none have compared to Body Electric. Their expertise, customer service, and professionalism is outstanding. I was greeted at the door and taken care of right away. Everyone in the shop was very friendly and I felt very comfortable. I went to get my ears gauged and James was my piercer. He took great care of me and I was impressed at how much time he spent in making sure my piercings would be symmetrical and exactly where I wanted them. Which is very important because no one wants to look foolish with one hole higher then the other hole. I'll definitly be back to Body Electric, in fact, I already want my holes stretched....so see you soon James!

I had two of my tattoos done at Body Electric. They were absolutely amazing both times. The first time I got a tattoo I was stupid enough to get my boyfriend's name. That relationship didn't last, but the tattoo did. I went back to Body Electric to get a cover up over the jerk's name and they told me that the best way to get a cover up was to first get the tattoo lightened through laser tattoo removal so that the old tattoo wouldn't be noticeable through the cover up. I was referred to Dr. TATTOFF to get the tattoo lightened. The staff at Dr. TATTOFF were great and the sessions didn't hurt that much. It only took a few treatments to lighten and now I have an awesome tattoo.

I just got back from getting my tongue pierced at Body Electric. I walked in, they had time for me and everyone was really nice and friendly. I was really apprehensive and worried about the pain, I asked a ton of questions and my piercer, James, was totally nice about answering everything. He didn't treat me like every other client and was patient with my fear. He talked me through it and everything went smoothly. After I felt dizzy, he got me water and made sure I was ok. I definitely will go back again, and my friend is already planning to get a tattoo there.

WOW Man!!!! Its Saturday JUne 28, 2008. We spent most of the day look at tattoo shops on melrose and in the area. We were getting very discouraged. about the service and VIBE in the shops, un- attractive and felt very un-welcome........UNTIL . . . . I walked into Body Electric Tattoo - I was greeted the moment I walked in by taka, followed by the Owner Brian. With in seconds of being there I felt 100% welcomed and invited in. The vibe of the shop was hip and filled with a positive energy. The space has character and most importantly is very clean. Great music pumping in the room, the artists CARE about the art and what the out come is. My tattoo was done very gently on my arm by Julian (You rock), with some advise on my tat from Ian. Just great freaking guys, great vibe!!!! I will absolutely be back, I found my home for tattoos, and LOVE IT. THANK YOU guys!!!! Its very much appreciated. _ PS Im Michael Fiore - The guy that got his kids and wife names with the chinese LOVE up his arm!!!! I LOVE IT!!!! Thanks again! BRIAN KEITH is so cool, the BEST shop in LA I have ever seen!!!!! Rock on bro's!!!! mf

I've been a collector of tattoos for a very long time. After seeing Taka's online portfolio, I decided that I wanted to get a piece done by him. I drove out to Los Angeles to get get my full chest piece done by him. He was extremely helpful and patient and worked with me to custom draw my tattoo. I couldn't be happier with the way my chest piece turned out. It was way more than I could have ever imagined. I highly recommend Taka and I will def. be back to get some more work done by him. If you are a true lover of quality tattoo work, then he's the guy to go to.

Last month my wife and I came to LA on vacation and stayed in Hollywood.

While out doing some shopping, we looked for a particular piece of gold jewelry for her belly button. After stopping at a few shops Melrose, we came across Body Electric .
They have a great selection of jewelry and we found the piece she was looking for!
The guys who work there are really nice and didn't charge us to put the jewelry in.

You definitely need to check out their gold selection!

I had my lobes pierced by the owner of the shop (only he and james do piercings there) and he was the most professional piercer I've ever met. He measured both ears to be sure it was balanced, and took a lot of time with me just to do one of the most simple piercings there are. Very clean and sanitary environment, they explain how they clean their needles and you see them being taken out so you know they are safe. Their jewelry is high quality, and great for those who have has allergic reaction to steel or gold jewelry. I've had my nose and ear cartiledge pierced before and had horrible reactions and healings, this place is totally different. The 1st lobe didn't even hurt, maybe a slight pinch but I kid you not it didn't hurt...I was shocked! 2nd one hurt a bit more, as is typical, but I've had no pain at all since then, no swelling or redness, nothing! Im still shocked how well it went and reccommend that everyone go here.

I decided to get my septum peirced and chose Body Electric since they already had great reviews. I was nervous but my peircer James (the BEST btw) was very professional. He helped me choose jewelry, explained any problems I could or might run into with my peircing and was very patiant with me during the peircing. James was very helpful with my post-peircing care as well - I've been in a few times since to check out new peices and everyone is always very very friendly and professional. It all went so well (really nearly painless) that I decided to check out a cover up job from their tattoo artist Taka! I can see why this place is number 1 - it definately deserves 5 stars... too bad there aren't more : )

There is no shortage of tattoo and piercing shops in Los Angeles; however, if you want the best, you absolutely must go to Body Electric. Perched above Melrose Avenue, you will seriously wish that this were your apartment and fortunately, it is as comfortable as if it were. Even on a busy Saturday, the guys all took the time to greet me and make sure I was comfortable.

James is, well, he's simply amazing. He listened to what I wanted and then walked me through what he was going to do. This was at least the 4th time I was being pierced and I've accumulated quite a bit of scar tissue. James made it as painless as humanly possible and I have to say--it was THE best piercing experience I've ever had. James encouraged me to come back so he could make certain everything was healing properly and also tighten the jewelry. He is so sweet and charming and incredibly professional. I am definitely looking forward to my next piercing with him.

Living in the land of image, Los Angeles has countless places to go and get yourself a tattoo, but hands down, when you're looking for quality, Body Electric Tattoo & Piercing is the BEST. I got my first tattoo there and I'm more than satisfied. I'd recommend them to EVERYONE thinking about inking.

I went to get my first tattoo about a week ago. I referenced Citysearch and was impressed with all of the great reviews here. Let me just say that I agree with them 110%!

I got my tattoo by Ian Michael. He was knowledgeable, warm and patient with me while we debated on specifics of the art. I have to say, I've never gotten better customer service. When I was ready he took me step by step and made every concession to ensure that I was comfortable and that I was feeling okay. I'm a pretty small girl and my tattoo was on my ribs so it was important for him to ensure I was doing well throughout the entire process. The tattoo turned out amazing. Additionally, as a person from the Midwest, I have to say that his overall demeanor really made me feel like I was at home.

My best friend was in town and he got a tattoo from Taka. He also really loved his experience and the details on his tattoo were so impressive. I know that he also felt very well taken care of and we both left happy customers.

Thanks again Ian and Taka!

I had my navel pierced twice before, and it gave me grief both times- long healing time, development of hypertropic scarring, etc. After about two years I was missing my belly ring again, but I wanted to be really sure before getting it redone that my navel was actually piercable. I've been reading up online that some navels are not suitable for piercing.
A staff from the shop I went to before I visiting body electric told me that my navel could not be repierced because it has too much of an inward curvature (whatever that means), but I wasn't able to get them to elaborate so I wanted a second opinion.
At body electric, I talked to Brian, who was very professional and informative. He noted that my previous piercing was probably too shallow and ended up rejecting, and assured me that my navel could be repierced. I have to say that I had doubts, but after getting the piercing and feeling the difference between this (third one) and the first two times I had it done, I have to say these people know what they are doing. In the past when it was pierced too shallow, I'd had the problem with the piercing getting snagged on clothing and stuff, and it was a pain to exercise with. But nowadays I hardly notice it there. I'm really happy with the results, and my only regret is that I wished that I had done the piercing here to start with, then I won't have these scars to remind me of my previous lack of research.

After many searches, I came across the add for this shop. Although my ears are pierced, it was done many years ago so this would be my first piercing in years. I've wanted my navel pierced for at least 3 years and had been working up the nerve to do it and I was determined to do it this year. Since James had such glowing reviews, I decided he would be the one to do my navel piercing and true to the other reviews, he was very knowledgeable, professional and answered all questions, even the ones I didn't ask. I went to the shop on 02/29/08, met James and he explained how to take care of my piercing. His area was very clean, sterilized and the piercing was over before I knew it. He told me to come back so he could check it out and to call back if I had any questions, which I did and true to his word, he answered me. I did return in 2 weeks just to make sure all was ok and it is. James told me I can come back anytime and he'll change my ring for me. I can't say enough good things about him or the shop, which is also very clean. If I desired to have anything else pierced, James would be the man to do it and as the other reviewers said, he is cute!

I had the pleasure of getting my wrists anchored by James. I've only ever had my ears pierced so I was a bit nervous. James assured me that it would be painless during and after. He made me comfortable and he was thorough in telling me how to take care of my new piercings and encouraged me to call the shop if I had further questions. James assured me that it would be painless during and after and he was absolutely correct.

Since then I've got back to have James stretch my ears and I plan on having more tattoo and piercing work done there in the near future!!

The shop its self is clean, welcoming, well decorated, calming, and full of all the proper machinery and more beautiful jewelry to choose from than you could imagine. I'll definitely be returning for all my future body modifications!

It looks awesome and I am sure they can draw me something lady-like and classy. Plus they have amazing reviews. I can't wait to visit with my girlfriends!!!

i've been wanting to get my industrial for so long. out of all the piercings places i walked into body electric with my sister. walked up the flight of stairs only to find a clean and cool shop. people are soooo friendly. i went in on a saturday and JAMES does not work on saturdays.. but he was there and he still did my industrial on his own time. he was uber friendly! he let me know how the procedure was going to be done, all the steps. JAMES is the BEST!!!!!!!! didn't hurt at all.. so smooth and quick. didn't feel a thing. he let me know how to take care of my new piercing and told me to come in again so he could make sure everything was perfect. i've had my piercing for over a year now and it has never given me problem. i recommend him to all my friends and family.
****IF YOU ARE CONTEMPLATING WHETHER OR NOT TO GET AN PIERCING... JUST DO IT!! you will not regret it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's been a few months since I went so the names of the artists are escaping me right now. I walked up the flight of stairs turned left and walked through a door that looked just like an apartment. It's an easy feeling. First notice is the clean style oufitted with a cool couch, it bounces. Check out the portfolios on the table. I wanted a koi, so they recommended an artist that was on his way back to the shop. So i waited patiently and had a cheese. My artist freehanded my koi, worked hard, 4.5 hrs. later I had a beautiful piece. West Coast trip complete!
