A passionate place. I did a lot of research before coming to the Electric Dragonland, especially because I had a bad experience in Minneapolis a few years ago. Throughout my experience at ED with Steph Schill, I was so impressed. I sought service to re-do letters on my leg and add flowers to the site for a memorial tattoo. Steph made this experience and the product beautiful. She has extremely high standards with tools, disposal, and taking lots of time in preparation to make sure the tattoo will be perfect and that customers are comfortable. There is no rush or pressure, just kindness, professionalism, and passion for the job.
I saw a friend's tattoo and was amazed by the quality. A mountainlion on the shoulder. It was photorealistic and very 3 dimensional. When I saw that tattoo, I knew I wanted the artist who inked it to do my first tattoo. His name was Shahn Anderson and his shop is Electric Dragonland. I was lucky because it's right in my general area, so I could stop by and talk with him a couple of times before haing the work done.
Shahn is a wonderful, enthusiastic, supportive and knowlegable artist. He put me at ease, listened to my ideas, asked great questions, and made some reccomendations to make my first experience great. I had to wait 4 months to get time slot, but it was worth it.
Shahn's work is amazing. Every time I show the tat off, I get compliments and close examination of the incredible detail and depth of the work. His work was clean/. Both my tats are about 10 sq inches each, so not very small. There was some tenderness for about 48 hours, but not bad at all. His shop and practices are absolutely sanitary and clean. As well they should be, with Shahn being Pres of the national Tattoo Artist assn. He's also won countless awards for his work, really, you won't believe how many trophy's he's got stored (not displayed) in his shop.
His associate, Eddie, does alot of the flash and does some darker originals.
