Welcome to Explosive Ink Tattoo

At Explosive Ink Tattoo we have been proudly serving the IL/WI Stateline in Hebron, IL since 2007. We are committed to producing high quality tattoos that are safe and affordable every time. Providing a unique one-on-one experience for our customers.

OHSA/Bloodborne Pathogens certified yearly

State of IL Dept. of Public Health licensed yearly

Better Business Bureau (BBB) accredited since 2017

We ask for you to schedule a free consultation to go over the tattoo details, location and size. At that time, we can estimate the time it will take to complete & estimate the price. Seeing the tattoo location in person and being able to discuss the details helps greatly in the whole process.

Tattoo pricing is based on the time it takes to complete, which is dictated by the size and the tattoo detail. 

$50 Minimum

$125/Hour

$450 for 4 Hours

Our 4-hour deal comes in handy for the multiple session tattoos.

If you decide during the consultation you would like to book an appointment with Bret, we request a $50 Cash Deposit to secure your appointment. It will be deducted off your total. If for any reason you do get the tattoo, we retain the deposit. The deposit is Non-Refundable.

We accept cash and all major debit/credit cards for the remaining balance.

*PROOF OF DESIGN WILL BE PROVIDED AT THE TIME OF YOUR APPOINTMENT*

We prefer to meet you in person to start your process of getting a tattoo. Seeing someone in person and discussing the design, location, and style, are imperative in custom/cover-up tattoos.
