Huge thanks to Martin Kelly for an amazing tattoo experience. Martin worked with me for about a month prior to get the design how I liked, then 5 hours to actually have it done, and was exceptionally patient even as a twitched (despite my best efforts). He’s a fantastic artist who you should definitely check out if you want something beautiful and unique, as well as an excellent professional who I cannot recommend more highly.Grace B.
I couldn’t say greater things about this shop and Martin Kelly in particular. It was my first tattoo and he did such an amazing job. We communicated for around a month with just my ideas and he drew up the most incredible design. The process was communicated great and Martin couldn’t have executed any better. If you want any work done, contact Martin and you won’t be disappointed.Oren M.
It’s been a handful of months since I received a tattoo (my first tattoo mind you) from Body Electric on Melrose. All you need to know; go to this tattoo parlor. Martin Kelly is a genius; super welcoming and open to interpretation with your Idea. If you have any hesitance, the crew will talk you through your thinking and help to cultivate the tattoo you didn’t even realize was so frikin awesome. Love the place, can’t recommend enough (especially Martin). Go, go, go.Alex M.
