Tattoos & Fine Art
OCTOBER 21 - JANUARY 1, 2023
Audrey is a regular guest at Modern Electric Studio, originally from Houston, Texas where she spent time running her own shop. She approaches tattooing from a place of human connectivity and a desire to honor our bodies. She enjoys working in black and grey and appreciates the dynamism of color. Audrey is a painter, compulsive drawer, and voracious reader.

Through tattooing, I am able to help you tell your story, share your perspective on the world, and hopefully make you even more beautiful. Tattooing offers me an opportunity to work directly with those who love to wear my designs. It is a personal experience, tailor-made for you. I do only black and grey work (with rare exceptions, when necessary), and only original custom pieces. I may be able to add to an existing piece, but tend to avoid cover-ups unless they’re small.
My process begins with a consultation on your theme, personality, body type, and imagery that appeals to you. From there, I draw upon my knowledge of design and art history to arrive at a unique solution. Ultimately my goal is to make you happy and proud of work that is specific to you.
In 2008, Modern Electric Studio was founded in San Francisco by painter and tattooist Suzanne Shifflett, with the intention of merging the practices of fine art and tattooing. A private studio, Modern Electric launched the career of legendary painter Tanya Wischerath. In 2016 Suzanne passed ownership of the shop to her then apprentice Aaron Nassberg. With the assistance of the UC Berkeley Art Department, Aaron moved Modern Electric Studios to the East Bay to be part of a growing and vibrant arts community. Aaron has sought to increase the visibility and function of the Gallery aspect of the studio, while still preserving the queer safe and Feminist aspects of its San Francisco roots. Subsequently, Modern Electric has been instrumental to many of the Bay Area's current renaissance of fine tattooers, particularly in the field of black work.
