Out on Sunset Blvd in Silverlake is American Electric Tattoo Company, another place that has gained some fame in this city of celebrities.
I became acquainted with it when my friend, and one of my best models, from Denver came to LA for a few days for an art gallery opening where my work with him was being exhibited. On our way to my studio, he said he wanted to get a tattoo an we stopped into the shop.
I don’t recall exactly which ones, but we were told when we were there that the shop has been used for several photoshoots and and music videos featuring some big names. That comes as no surprise, the decor of the shop is as much a work of art as their tattoos.
American Electric Tattoo Company has been in the Silverlake area since 1999 and it is considered to be one of the best tattoo shops in LA.. You can find it at 2518 Sunset Blvd.
