This old-school shop on Sunset is a staple in L.A.’s tattoo community. Run by Brit and tattoo veteran Craig Jackman (seriously, the guy’s been doing this for more than 40 years), American Electric is the Silver Lake go-to for high-quality ink and an often kooky but always laidback atmosphere. Don’t be intimidated by the staff’s experience though—whether you’re looking to get a giant backpiece of a fantasy battle scene, a traditional piece featuring a buxom lady (ask for artist Julie Bolene) or a dainty treble clef behind your ear, the artists at American Electric are thrilled to help you get the tattoo you really want.
