REVIEWS OF Redbird Electric Tattooing IN Illinois

Aaron Sill

Just got my first tattoo done by Matt and he straight up killed it. Dude is a beast! Definitely will be going back for all my tattoos.

Jennifer the melanie martinez unicorn

The artists there do wonderful work! Friendly, clean, and affordable

Shannon Whitcomb

Brian McCormic is the best tattoo artist in Springfield. His artistry is second to none. I give him my tattoo idea and he turns it in to something amazing. I have been getting tattooed by Brian for over 10 years. I was so happy to hear that he moved back and opened his own shop. The attention and care that he gives to each and every client is fantastic. If you want a tattoo that looks and feels like it was licked on by baby unicorns, do yourself a favor and go to Redbird.

Amanda Doherty

I got my first and only tattoo (so far!) here. These guys made me feel comfortable and were very friendly. I felt bad because my tattoo artist had gotten in a motorcycle accident the day before, he was in a ton of pain, but he still gave me a great experience. I'd definitely come back for my next one :)

I got my first tattoo here with Ernie as my artist. He was incredible. I loved the experience and the tattoo. I will always go back to him for future tattoos. The business is clean and very professional but also a hell of a good time. They are down to earth. I will always recommend this shop.

Alex Gilliland

Awesome staff, awesome art. Love my tattoo. Will definitely be going back for future tattoos


The tattoo guy seem chill. Very professional. Didn't end up going with this tattoo parlor but would recommend to anyone looking to talk to an artist about a tattoo.

Rob Sumner

I highly recommend Brian, owner of Redbird Electric, to anyone who is looking for a new tattoo. It's rare that you find a humble tattoo shop that is so clean, comfortable and void of all the unnecessary frills of those modern "rock star" shops and just lets their tattoos and extraordinary customer service do the talking. So, if you've been thinking about getting a new piece, or maybe fixing an old one, get in to see Brian! I described to him what I was wanting and the price range I wanted to stick to, and he exceeded my expectations! I drove an hour and a half to get there, and it was more than worth it! I walked away with an awesome piece, and they earned a new, loyal customer!

Sam Perks

I had a wonderful experience. My brother and I were visiting our mom from out of town. She was having surgery, and we wanted to surprise her with matching “Mom Heart” tattoos. Jesse had room between appointments and was able to fit us in. He was really cool about it too, and he made the experience a lot of fun. You should only get tattoos from a quality artist who knows what they are doing. That is certainly what you will find here. Very professional, very hygienic, excellent artists, and really nice people.

Jessica Oftedal

Claire Stokes

Awesome friendly artists. Got my first tattoo they made me feel at home and comfortable.

Ernie is dope. Everyone in the shop is cool, making the whole experience nice. Doesn’t really matter who you go to, they’re all great but they do specialize in different things and will point to which of them does what the best. During your tattoo they talk to you making the process go faster than it normally does. The shop itself is probably the best looking shop in Springfield.

trinity agans

Great guys. Great atmosphere. Great artwork. RBE is all around a wonderful place to get some new ink, a sweet t-shirt, cool buttons, and some good laughs!

Rodney Smith

Laid back, the guy that help me was a good people person.

Cassie De Roze

They did an amazing job on my tattoo!! They helped me take my idea and make it into exactly what I wanted. I wouldn't use anyone else!

Elizabeth Bateman

I got a great tattoo here!

Hailey Huffines

I've been to Redbird on multiple occasions, and every time I am there the artists are inviting and humorous. I get my work done by Brian, but Jesse is also a remarkable artist. Both have a compelling profile of work and I trust Brian 100% behind the needle. The environment is relaxed and not one of those tattoo parlors where the artists constantly have an ego. I recommend you check this place out and research Brian and Jesse's work because they produce some of the best tattoos in the area.

Rachel Waltrip

Best tattoo guys around! I will never go anywhere else for tattoos. Both Jesse and Brian are terrific guys and very talented artists! The shop is small, inviting and most importantly very clean. I cannot recommend this place enough!!!

Lauren Swaggerty

I may be a bit biased but this is the only place in town that I trust to put tattoos on me. Jesse is fabulous. He has done most of my work and has put anything I got prior to finding him to shame. I am always indecisive and he's always there to give his opinion on what would look best and where. I have a couple from Brian as well and he is incredibly patient. They are both so talented and good hearted people. Their personalities, talents, and the atmosphere they create make it the perfect experience time and time again. Love you boys! :)

Sarah Swain

I cannot say enough good things about Redbird Electric and their staff! The staff was extremely friendly, knowledgeable, informative and talented! The shop was clean and had adequate seating for when you're waiting. I was personally tattooed by Jesse, and would highly recommend him and the other guys at Redbird to anyone! And to top it all off they accept debit cards! Seriously, this is the best place to go.

Zynia Machell

chris wieland

Great artists and people. I always have a great time here. Just a cool place to hang out and get some ink therapy.

Charles Zake

These guys are absolutely great, from the owner (Brian), to the trainees! My wife and I got our first tattoos there, and we are already coming up to having 5 in total from here. The prices are absolutely reasonable for what you are getting. All of the artists will be up front with the work you are wanting and they definitely take pride in their work since their name will be attached to that piece. Redbird electric is extremely clean in the work they do and the equipment that they use. I would easily recommend this as a place to go get your 1st, or 50th tattoo.

Lindsey DeBrun

Amazing people! A shop with truly great energy and good humans. First visit but it won't be our last!

Brent Coffee

Best shop in town hands down! They're so good at what they do that family from out of state has even driven down for tattoos from them! 10/10 always recommend.

Alise Kest

I had a had a great had a great experience at Redbird Electric. It was my first tattoo and on my ribs too. To top it off I had complicated ideas about a design and Brian went above and beyond to help talk me through and draw (and re-draw!) design ideas for me! It is everything I could have hoped for and I am in love with the final product! The other guys on staff were nice, friendly, & easy to talk to. Everyone kept the place and equipment extremely clean. I received great quality work with great service for an affordable price (although it shouldn't be about the price!)! Thanks again! I would recommend to anyone!

My daughter and I went for mother/daughter tattoos and Ernie did not disappoint. The shop is immaculately clean and the staff is a blast. We enjoyed ourselves from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. Ernie created our art, but all of the artists there have amazing talent and they take pride in their work. If you want your first or your 100th tattoo, make yourself an appointment here!

Kari Lewis

Bridgette Blisset

The artists at Redbird Electric Tattooing are phenomenal. The most professional shop I've ever been to and outstanding customer service to go with it. The guys there listen to what you want and are well equipped to execute any design. My ink from will come from them from this point forward!

Heather Schmidt

Great group. Great work. They care about quality, their customers, their artists, and their community.

Colleen Carley

Got to spend the best part of the afternoon with 3 incredible tattoo artists. My first tattoo by Brian. I love it and exactly what I envisioned.

Highly recommend this shop!! Jesse tattooed my grandmother, mother, sister and myself all in one afternoon! He was very patient with our million changes and indecisiveness! He did an amazing job creating the perfect tattoo for each of us! Will most definitely be coming back for more!

Ryan got my portrait done in less than the quoted time. The guys were great to talk to and the atmosphere is very clean (sterile) yet artistic. I would recommend this shop to anyone for any work. My wife has gotten work done here also and both of us felt very comfortable and felt we were treated professionally as well. Tip please.

Rafer Dunbar

Great shop, good group of artists. Love my work.

Cupidjane306 _the_mew

Hands down the best shop in town. Amazing artists in a very clean environment. Ive made a lot of good memories there!

Megan Luckey

I went into my appointment with only a vague idea of what I wanted and Brian took his time and had so much patience! So happy with the work and attitude of everyone in the shop

Ryan Dunn

Nick does great work

Michael Joyner

I just got my first tattoo of my life tonight at 38 y/o. It was an amazing experience. I got a simple heart rhythm of my daughter but Brian made this first timer feel like it was a huge deal. I'm sure this type of tattoo is nothing for him. The tattoo turned out amazing looking and the placement is way better than I first wanted. Brian suggested moving the tattoo a little forward on my left side. And he was totally correct. It couldn't be better. Thank you Brian for making a first timer with a simple tattoo feel special about it.

joshua landholt

Ernie did me and my cousins tattoo, was very good experience. Allowed us to come in only an hour before closing with no appointment when no other shop could find time for us.

Will Decker

Skilled and PROFESSIONAL artists. Never get work done anywhere else.

Adrianna Bomstad

I have a few tattoos by Jesse Sherman and absolutely love them! He is a wonderful artist and also wonderful to work with. Brian's work is watermelon note worthy! I've seen his pieces on many people and would recommend both guys highly! :)

Renee Derr

These guys are great! They are very helpful and knowledgeable and they are willing to work with you. I live in Texas and was in Springfield on vacation with plans to get a tattoo with my two brothers. I had emailed Brian, the shop owner a week in advance pictures and ideas of what we were hoping to get and we discussed sizing, placement and price and I have to say that he and his staff were very friendly and accommodating. The sibling tattoo idea initially fell apart due to my brothers schedules but I still got a tattoo of my own and they did a fantastic job! Next time I go to visit my brothers we're DEFINITELY going to go back. Also their shop is very clean and is set up very nicely. A+ job guys!

Silver Riley

Brian did an amazing job on a custom piece of my daughters first painting. He is amazing i love the end results.. Thank you. Would recommend to everyone to take a trip and see him.

These guys make me hard. They're so sexy. If you like tattoos and being horny, this is the place to go.

Rachel Gifford

Have had several pieces done here and would go back in a heartbeat. Clean, professional, talented and really fun place to be tattooed.

Lynn Michael

Received my first tattoo from Matt Forkenbrock yesterday! What a rad dude! He executed my thoughts and ideas flawlessly. Super clean, tidy shop with pretty dudes to stare at, Redbird Electric gives you an impeccable balance of fun and professionalism. 5/5, 10/10, two thumbs up and gold stickers for everyone! Safe to say, I will unquestionably be back for more! :)

Noah Horton

I was tattooed by the shop owner, Brian McCormic on 7-29-15. He was extremely patient, and answered any questions I had thoroughly. I requested a last minute alteration of my tattoo and he obliged without hesitation. Brian's co-workers were also very professional and polite. I had no worries of cleanliness during my experience, Redbird was clean and sanitary. Oh, and not to forget, my tattoo turned out amazing. I will definitely be returning.

Cathy Fager

Julie Heinzel

Incredible experience. Easy to schedule and pay my deposit on line. The place was easy to find and super clean. Very welcoming and accommodating shop. I would recommend this shop to others in a heartbeat!! Thanks for the awesome memory that will last our lifetimes.

Alexia Gomez

Best tattoo shop in Springfield. The crew of artist are highly talented and accomodating to the client's needs. Every artist has amazing and unique set of skills aside from being extremely funny and outgoing. Its a great place to get a high quality piece of art and their fares are very good.


Kay McCormic

This shop is a long time dream of Brian's; who had many ideas about a shop, one above the norm. Different but comfortable. This is what he and the other guys have built; from basically the ground up. Just a visit to the shop gives one a taste and you'll be hooked. Then there are the three guys who do awesome, creatve work which their clients love. They can do flash but their talents lie in creating and tattooing what their clients want, how they want it, with creative input from the artists. Their work is awesome, their attitudes are client centered and helpful. If you want an awesome tattoo from an artist who cares about not only his work but you, the person they are working for.....Go see Brian and the guys at Redbird!

Bob Craigmiles

My son got his first tattoo there,the guys were great and so was the work.

Jose Molina

I got a tattoo from Brian before he opened his own shop, so this review is maybe slightly cheating. But my tattoo is brilliant, Brian is a brilliant artist, and it is safe to assume that his shop is brilliant, because he is uptight about making things good. So go get a tattoo there.
