Needlepoint Tattoo Studio was established in 2005. After spending a few years as a travelling tattoo artist, Owner and senior tattoo artist, Ralph San Ramon felt it was time to start the shop he always dreamt of in his hometown of Cebu City.
The studio started out as a small shop, single-handedly managed by only Ralph and his wife, Pearl all while taking turns as they balanced running the shop and going to university.
It has humbly come a long way since then. In 2010, Needlepoint moved to a bigger shop which is now its current location in Gorordo Avenue. In 2013, artist Mards Aleman joins the team and in 2016 the family grows bigger with the addition of previous Needlepoint apprentice, Philip Sarmiento. In 2015, Pearl San Ramon also expanded her beauty expertise into cosmetic tattooing.
At Needlepoint, we strive to make every artpiece a collaboration with the client. We believe each design tells a story and we want to help each client actualize these stories aesthetically in each tattoo we create. The shop is a very open and friendly atmosphere and we love entertaining clients from all walks of life.
