Pardon the mess as we redesign our website

Inksplosive Tattoo in Milford, Connecticut is not just another tattoo shop. Here at Inksplosive, giving you a tattoo that stands the test of time, one that you will be proud of years from now is our main concern. A lot of thought on your part and our part will go into your tattoo, and that part is not negotiable.

Our shop is sterile and our artists understand and practice universal safety precautions this makes Inksplosive the ideal place to have your tattoo created. We have a professional autoclave and display monthly spore tests to confirm this equipment remains in top working order. The other factor in choosing a tattoo is, of course, the art. Head over to the gallery if you like what you see then we have that end covered as well.

The owner, Al, feels very strongly about his work; this is the reason for the strict rules about price shopping and spending the time with the client to develop a good tattoo idea. He will not take the time to ink a tattoo that he feels is not a good investment and will see every project through to the end. Please just don't expect to come in with a blurry picture printed from a website and start getting inked right away as this is not our style.

Al was taught the art and tattoo trade by local old school artists who themselves learned from the old masters. Serving a true apprenticeship and earning his right to hold and use the tools of the tattoo trade, as such he believes one earns this right it is not a given.

If you're just looking for the cheapest price, Inksplosive is probably not the place for you. But if you're looking for a piece of art that will last many years, come visit us!

Here are some things to consider before you call or come down:

  • Please do not call asking for a price. You cannot price a tattoo over the phone or an email.
  • Be ready to commit some time to your tattoo preparation.
  • Know that Al will be just as committed to your tattoo as you are.
  • Your tattoo will be with you a lifetime, so make sure it's something you won't regret a few years down the road.
  • If you are committed, you can expect the artists at Inksplosive to give you a tattoo that you will be proud of forever and want to show off.
