Shawn G, owner of Needleplay Tattoo, has been tattooing and piercing for over sixteen years. He apprenticed in New York, where he took a course in
cross-contamination and blood bourne pathogens, and eventually opened his first
shop in the Poconos. After three years there, Needleplay Tattoo relocated to Pottsville and had its grand opening there in 2004.
Needleplay Tattoo maintains and prides itself in its excellent reputation. It is a clean shop which upholds high industry standards- single use needles for every customer, hospital style autoclave sterilization, quality products, up-to-date information and, above all, excellent work.
Needleplay Tattoo also places high value on customer service. At Needleplay, you will be treated in a friendly, courteous manner. Any questions will be answered, any concerns will be addressed, and photos of prior work are always available for viewing. Needleplay's main goals are to ensure that its customers feel comfortable and at ease, receive every health and safety precaution they are entitled to, and, of course, to provide a service that its clients will be happy with- a fun piercing, a great tattoo, or a cover up of that not-so-great tattoo.
As for tattoo styles, Shawn does and appreciates them all. His main goal is simply to give his customers exactly what they want- traditional, new school, Japanese, tribal, celtic, and more- and to ensure that they leave with a piece of work they can be proud to show off.
At Needleplay, you can also purchase quality body jewelry, gift certificates, tattoo care products, tee-shirts and more. You can choose a tattoo from the thousands of designs available or have your tattoo custom designed. Or you can just come in and look around.
If you've been to Needleplay Tattoo before, chances are, you've been more than once. Needleplay has fantastic, loyal customers. If you haven't been- you've seen them in the papers, the phone book, the web, you've heard them on the radio... it's time to come down and experience them for yourself. You won't be disappointed.
