Describe 717 Tattoo In One Word: Comfortable
Explain Why You Chose That Word:: I’ve had four sessions with Stephan so far, working on a full back piece and every time I was there it was so easy to relax and just be me. He is very friendly and accommodating. I definitely felt comfortable the whole time.
Anything Else You Want To Add? Still in progress on the back piece but I can’t wait to make more appointments with Stephan. Like I said before, he was really great to work with, very friendly. He’s listening to what I want about my tattoo but since I’m not overly specific I’m allowing him to do what he thinks will look best and letting him use his artistic ability and I think it’s great so far! It’s also a coverup and hes tackling it so well, considering the size and how severely dark the old tattoo was. Very happy with everything so far regarding my tattoo and the experience.

Anything Else You Want To Add? Love the work done at this shop. Everyone is so welcoming and energetic. I love that I can throw a bunch of ideas to Stephan and in the end he comes up with something more amazing then I dreamed it would be.

Describe 717 Tattoo In One Word: Exceptional
Explain Why You Chose That Word:: Stephan knew how to give me exactly what I wanted. I had a major tattoo failure (from a different studio) that he turned into a work of art. I am so pleased with it, and I intend to return to him to add to it. I was a bit of a whiner as he was doing my tattoo, and Stephan was very patient with me. Just FYI, I am a 58 y.o. grandmother, and got my first tattoo only 3 years ago.
Anything Else You Want To Add? Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year!

Explain Why You Chose That Word:: You gashtards have left many memorable memories with my entire family. All work my boyfriend and I have received are masteepieces. I’ve never had a complaint. Stephan is an extremely talented, mellow, friendly individual as is the rest of the crew there. I will forever charish the hard work ella trick also dis with a created family crest I received alongside my brother siste and mom for her 50th birthday. I enjoy the connection everyone seems to share even with the differences of personalities. Cutos to the shop. Looking forward to many more conventions and shop visits year round.

Explain Why You Chose That Word: I have never had such an awesome tattoo. I came in for a consultation with Stephan and took his time to actually listen to me & what I want. It is the best tattoo I have ever gotten. It is still a work in progress, but it is memory of my grandmother & grandfather. The day of my appointment, Stephan was very patient with me to make sure he completely understood what it is & how I wanted it done. I am extremely pleased with his work & have referred friends & clients of mine into him & Shelby (I went to school with her). I love both of their work. I am also looking forward to finishing my arm work with Stephan, but also bringing my husband in with either him or Shelby for some work in honor of our son.
Anything Else You Want To Add? I was referred there by a client or friend of Stephan’s who I asked for a referral. Since the last place I went to, the artist didn’t listen to me in regaurds to what I wanted ex: color, size and over all apearance.

Explain Why You Chose That Word: I have had many tattoos and a few piercings at 717tattoo…I have always encountered exceptional service and care. I have always left with pride in the work I’ve received from Stephan and look forward to my return visits
Anything Else You Want To Add? Id like to add that with each visit to 717tattoo I always feel safe with the work I’m having done because the shop is always spotless. I see the artist taking pride in keeping the shop clean and I take pride knowing my work comes from such a professional shop and from an artist who listens to my ideas and always follows through with exceptional work

Describe 717 Tattoo In One Word: Exceptional
Explain Why You Chose That Word: The shop is impeccably clean. Stephan was great, very professional, very in tune to the sterilization requirements, listened to what I wanted and delivered. I honestly wouldn’t go anywhere else. I went with a friend for her to get a tattoo done at a different shop and there is no comparison. I wouldn’t go anywhere else BUT 717!
Anything Else You Want To Add? Did Gep request beards for what u want to see more of? I’m cracking up!

Describe 717 Tattoo In One Word: Comfortable
Explain Why You Chose That Word: I’m a regular there & Stephan has done my last two tattoos. Gep has done all my piercings (except my tongue & nose that was prior to 717 having permanent people) but I love knowing that when I go to the shop it’s comfortable & everyone is so friendly. We all joke around whosever there, Joe & Clay included. I have another appt with Stephan this month & stoked for it. I had my first tattoo done in 2007 by Brad so I mention him also despite not being at the Highspire shop anymore when I tell people where they should go for a tattoo &/or piercing
Anything Else You Want To Add? HIGHSPIRE! Is the best shop! LOVE 717 Tattoo & wouldn’t change anything!

Explain Why You Chose That Word: Amazing Talent, Clean, Safe, Knowledgeable, Inviting and highly recommended.
Anything Else You Want To Add? Thank you 717 for providing a safe, intelligent and professional environment to learn, recieve and share my love for tattoos. I received a right hand tattoo from Stephan @ Highspire, top and bottom knuckles by Anthony Z. @ Mechburg and came back to Stephan for a tattoo above my left eye. If I ever come back to PA I am definitely going to get some more ink. Blessings from Berlin.

Explain Why You Chose That Word: Stephan did the tattoo on my back, which was my first. He was very professional and gentle. I was terrified, but, he was calm. Made me very comfortable. Also, I had my septum pierced by Gep! He did a fabulous job, very clean and professional. Thankyou, 717!!!
