InkMaine was started by Artist/Owner Kris Howes, in 2010.  Located at 58 Congress Street in Rumford, Maine.  The Gaskyl crew remodeled the whole shop 2 years ago with a fresh look of an old tavern style with old barnwood and whiskey barrels.  Howes is the Primary Tattoo Artist at the shop, with New in 2018 Apprentice Rhonda Peart, and Body Piercer Jes Roberts.  

Howes has over 17 years tattoo experience, specializing in custom one of a kind tattoos, cover ups of old tattoos and scars, fine line black and gray and full color work. Being the only Artist at InkMaine for about 8 years, he has a roundabout tattoo style capable of tattooing almost any image. 
He is usually booking about 1 to 3 weeks ahead.
