Awesome Piercing Experience – 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!
A Truly Great Experience on All Levels! – 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.
Best piercing experience! – This studio is just a fun place to go. Cool atmosphere, very friendly people and very professional. I just love my new piercing!
It was my first piercing and I couldn't imagine it to be a better, more relaxed and fun experience. James was great and the minute I left I just knew I'll be back!
Thank you Body Electric!
Fantastic Piercing Studio – Body Electric did a wonderful job of calming my nerves and offering a clean, friendly enviroment. It was moderately priced and James did an excellent job.
Fantastic shop, talent and service – 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!
THE BEST PIERCING PARLOR IN LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA. – 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.
Best Piercing Studio! – 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!!
Look no further, this is the place. – 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. :)
Best experience you could wish for! – 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!
THE BEST PLACE FOR TATTOOS!!! – 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!!
