Welcome at Andy`s Body Electric - Tattoo & Piercingstudio in Willich-Neersen


Body Electric in Willich Neersen has been around now since 1996, so the best part of 16 years and was the very first Tattoo Studio in the district of Viersen (North Rhine-Westphalia). Proprietor and tattoo artist Andy Schmidt started out as an all rounder, has in the meantime specialised in New School art but is still at home and frequently works in all other styles, too. However, the team around Andy filling guest spots at his location more or less frequently has increased by quite a few colleagues/artists:

  • Andy: specializes in New School, but still an allrounder with 17 years of experience
  • Andrea: does lettering, floral and ornamental designs and takes care of the piercings
  • Ramona: is great in realistic tattoos, both black'n grey AND colour


In addition to his role as head of the studio, Andy also "along the way" takes care of the organization of the Tattoo Ink Explosion (Convention), which already goes into its 3rd year in Moenchengladbach in March 2012 and is home to only the finest artists the international tattoo scene has got to offer. In his function as vice chairman of the DOT Andy is actively involved in working out legislation relating to studio hygiene and tattoo colours/inks.

Alongside top quality tattoos and optimum working conditions there are a few more constants at Body Electric: Kustom Lifestyle, cool, relaxed and funny atmosphere, loads of coffee and, of course, Rock'n'Roll. After all, Rockabilly, Doo Wop, Swing and Country Blues guarantee dynamic and at the same time relaxed tattoing. At least that is what Andy and the lion's share of his customer base are convinced of. (and you better agree)

In addition, once or twice a year, the Body Electric is home to the legendary Rat Pack meetings, where US tattoo icons like Joe Capobianco, Jime Litwalk or Obie Hughes spend a few days with Andy in Neersen drawing, pin striping and enjoying good food and the occasional bottle of wine along the way.

If Top Tattoos and cool atmosphere are what you're after, plan a visit to Body Electric in Willich-Neersen sooner rather than later. Andy and the whole team are looking forward to meeting you.
