INKremental Tattoo Studio coming to York, Maine

YORK, Maine — The town’s first-ever tattoo studio in town, as far as Pam Babkirk knows, will resemble a relaxing spa more than a biker lounge.

“It’s self-care for a lot of people,” said Babkirk, who will soon open INKremental Tattoo Studio at the Cottage Place Professional Park plaza at 433 U.S. Route 1.

The longtime York resident and mother of two is eager to bring a new kind of face to an industry she said can be overly macho and negligent on comfort. Too many tattoo parlors have blaring music, she said, and “tattoo flash” on the walls, mostly comprised of skulls, knives or demons.

Babkirk’s studio walls do not contain much “flash,” or example tattoo art, as she wants people to bring their own ideas. She will likely add some in the future, but with images other than devils and skulls.
