Electrum was founded in 2012 by tattoo artist Rob Smead. While working in a local street shop, Rob developed what is now known as Electrum Premium Tattoo Stencil Primer. Electrum took the industry by storm and quickly became a leader in tattoo stencil application products. Everything was turned back into the company and eventually grew into a full tattoo supply company, focusing on the best products available to artists today. Electrum is a company that is family owned and operated by industry professionals that have working knowledge about the products they sell.
