Chuck Read - Owner/Tattooer


Never Say Die Tattoo opened for business in October of 2008. After leaving Permanent Impressions Tattoo after about 10 years, Chuck Read decided to peruse a shop of his own. With a love and dedication for the art of tattooing and a strong background in the industry Never Say Die Tattoo was born. Chuck and his staff have over 50 years total experience in the business and will give you the best tattoo experience possible. We will be selling tattoo aftercare products as well as body jewelry and tattoo related DVDs, CDs, clothing and anything else you might be able to think of so stop in and check us out. There sure will be plenty to look at. If we don’t have something you are looking for, please let us know and we will be happy to order it for you.


Never Say Die Tattoo is maintained under the utmost standards for sterilization, cleanliness, and comfort. All of our artists are Bloodborne Pathogens Certified. We use only single-use tray setups and needles. We will do everything within our power to make sure your visit to Never Say Die Tattoo is a pleasant one.


Chuck loves doing Black and Grey work most of all, but does not have a problem working with color.

Brad Kohnlein - Tattooer

I’ve been tattooing in the Harrisburg area since 2005. I was graciously given the opportunity to learn my trade from a very good and old friend who got me into a shop to apprentice. I enjoy realism, modern traditional, and Japanese style tattooing. Trying to stay well rounded and constantly grow as an artist and tattooer is what I love most about the craft I take part in. I continue to be extremely grateful to everyone who has helped me develop my art and my tattooing, clients and peers alike. Thank you for taking the time to view and show interest in my work!!
