John Y

Describe Your Experience In One Word: Exceptional
Explain Why You Chose That Word: I chose Exceptional because Shelby did great work, and made me feel comfortable with my very first tattoo. I supplied the image of the buck, and the wording. I told her I wanted an old wooden cross in there somewhere, and we had lots of hemlock trees at our cabin.
I told her that she could get as creative as she wanted, and also agreed that I wanted it bigger, rather than smaller. She sent me images of cross, and I picked the one I wanted, then sent me a layout, and I made some small changes, but overall she nailed what I was thinking of! I love how the buck appears to have just walked out of a hollow, softer hemlock trees gives the tattoo depth. Lots of detail, and she did a great job on the buck…I have seen some bad tattoos of deer on the web. Great job Shelby!
Anything Else You Want To Add? Already thinking about my next one…

Describe Your Experience In One Word: Exceptional
Explain Why You Chose That Word: She is an exceptional artist and seemingly exceptional person as well that provided my daughter wih an exceptional experience and piece of art.
Anything Else You Want To Add? Shelby just did my daughters tattoo for her 16th birthday and it was an awesome experience. Firstly, she experienced very little pain, Shelby tattoos eloquently with a light hand and gave my daughter a gorgeous piece! Her tattoo design for my daughter was just exactly what she was looking for! The work was exquisite!! Absolutely perfect! Exactly what we had hoped for. Shelby was professional but very personable. She was so friendly and made my daughter feel 100% comfortable with everything she was doing from the first “hello.” She could not have been any better! She did an amazing job and we will reccommend her to everyone and anyone looking to get a tattoo as well as return as customers in the future oursleves.

Describe Your Experience In One Word: Creative
Explain Why You Chose That Word: I chose creative because I went to Shelby with a few ideas for a half sleeve, she took the ideas and ran with them, and made it amazing. She is an excellent artist, and an awesome person. She made me feel at home. This is by far my best/ favorite tattoo I have. The shop was very clean and the staff is amazing.
Anything Else You Want To Add? Just want to say thank you to Shelby. My wife and I are looking to get more work from you in the future

Describe Your Experience In One Word: Impressive
Explain Why You Chose That Word: I chose impressive because it is the best word on the list, and I could only choose one, but so many other wonderful words work as well. Shelby is awesome. Very friendly and talented. She did a wonderful job with my first tattoo, and I foresee her doing more for me in the future.
Anything Else You Want To Add? Thank you much, Shelby. Cannot wait to see you again.

Describe Your Experience In One Word: Exceptional
Explain Why You Chose That Word: Shelby is EXCEPTIONAL!! \”The difference between being average and being exceptional starts with what\’s happening inside your head.\”-Robert Helms. One will never know what goes on in Shelby\’s head, but whatever it is, is truly a gift. She is an amazing person and an amazing artist. She has done all 5 of my tattoos and is currently working on my 6th. I can give her a general idea of what I am looking for and she will take it and put a very impressive and creative twist on it. She is the only artist that I trust 100% and she has an awesome personality. I recommend anyone that is looking for a tattoo to check her out, she sometimes has a few month waiting period, but it is worth the wait to get it done right and something you will enjoy showing off until you\’re in the grave. THANKS SHELBY FOR ALL THE TIME AND EFFORT YOU PUT INTO MY ART AND MEMORIES!!!!
Anything Else You Want To Add? You should find a way to clone Shelby!!

Describe Your Experience In One Word: High Quality
Explain Why You Chose That Word: Everyone was friendly & professional. The shop is very clean & Shelby made me feel very welcome & comfortable. My tattoo is a drawing my wife did, so getting it done right meant a lot to me, & it turned out perfect. High quality might be an understatement.
Anything Else You Want To Add? Thanks, Shelby!!! I couldn’t be happier with my tat, & I don’t want anyone else to do the other ones I want. I’m so glad my friend Denise told me about 717. Can’t wait to go back! 😉

Explain Why You Chose That Word: Shelby worked well with me to get the perfect tattoo for me. She was open to any questions I had, was patient and even chatted about vacations. She was very approachable when I first came to 717 looking for her and she worked around my schedule when booking my appointment. She was easy-going and made me feel at ease.

Describe Your Experience In One Word: Comfortable
Explain Why You Chose That Word: I’ve been to tattoo shops before where the artists are stand offish and not welcoming at all. It was refreshing to come into a shop and feel at ease.
Anything Else You Want To Add? Nope, just a big thanks and I will be coming back in the future!

Describe 717 Tattoo In One Word: Exceptional
Explain Why You Chose That Word: 717 had become a more than a body mod studio. It’s become a Brand of quality, and sets the bar for other studios in the area. 717 ‘exceeds’ my expectations on a regular basis; from the custom artwork and attention to detail, to the feeling safety and comfort in a sterile environment, and all things pertaining to the industry in between. Thanks setting the standard for the body modification industry in the ‘717’!!!
Anything Else You Want To Add? I also love the family/kinship atmosphere of the company. Thanks for doing what you do

Describe 717 Tattoo In One Word: Engaging
Explain Why You Chose That Word: Shelby was so receptive to my emotions going in to my ink. She took her creativity and brought it to life. The portrait of Daisey is incredible.
Anything Else You Want To Add? THANK YOU SHELBY….because of you Daisey is with me everyday.

Cori Sisti

Describe 717 Tattoo In One Word: Creative
Explain Why You Chose That Word: I chose “creative” because the the tattoos Shelby has done for me are always unique and different. I enjoy giving her an idea of what I want and she adapts it into something so much better than I could have imagined! She always adds little unique twists to make the artwork stand out and set it apart from the norm. I appreciate her artistic creativity and LOVE getting tattooed by her.
Anything Else You Want To Add? I also choose Skelly at the Mechanicsburg location for all my piercing needs. She always does a great job and is very informative through the whole process. I won’t go anywhere else! She’s a fun person and a professional piercer. What more can you ask for?

Jennifer Austin

Describe 717 Tattoo In One Word: Exceptional
Explain Why You Chose That Word: The care and attentiveness displayed by not only my attoo artist, Shelby, but every employee I encountered in the shop was an engaging experience.
Anything Else You Want To Add? You guys do fantastic work! Keep it up! I came to you guys to get my first tattoo and it was such a great time. Everyone was very personable and Shelby explained what was going on and what she was doing throughout the process so I didn’t have a single moment of discomfort or mistrust in her very able hands. I also enjoyed finding out that many of the employees were tattooed either by themselves or others in the shop, which gave me somewhat of a live portfolio to look at without having to go out of my way.

Erica Zehring

Anything Else You Want To Add? Keep up the great work!

Randi Olley

Describe 717 Tattoo In One Word: Clean
Explain Why You Chose That Word: Having a clean shop is of the utmost importance when I get a tattoo, “clean” may not describe my entire overall impression of the shop, however, it is the most important word to me.
Anything Else You Want To Add? I have recommended 717 to many friends, Shelby makes me so comfortable, she is the only artist I will ever go to, she has done two beautiful pieces for me already.
