I'm an electrician by trade. I work in a factory with mass amounts of electric water heaters. I don't doubt that you had a problem with the water heater. I haven't seen one that would give you a tingle like you're describing. I would also think that the element would be wired to some kind of ground fault circuit interrupting device, possibly at the circuit panel, that would prevent the tingle if there was a fault. It just makes me believe that the problem might also exist in the wiring for the heater element if that was the problem. It sounds most definetly to be a ground issue. If the proper ground is secure and in place there should be no shock hazzard.
