We have a major obsession with tattoos. We’re talking everything from the beautiful art we see on Pinterest to the minimalist designs and dainty floral ink. But we totally get why some people aren’t ready to commit to the permanence of tattoos. For those who want to take tattoos on a test drive, but want their designs to last longer than a day or two, now there’s Inkbox.
To rock one of these rad temp tattoos, all you need to do is place an adhesive stencil where you want the tattoo. Fill it in with their safe, organic, fruit-based dye and let it dry for about two hours. Remove the stencil, wash the tattoo and give it about 12-48 hours to fully appear. Once visible, it’ll last for 12-15 days, giving you plenty of time to experiment with designs. Getting rid of these temp tattoos is as easy as exfoliating.
Like real, permanent tattoos, these temps are designed by artists, but you can also order a custom design. Each tattoo is only $19. A portion of the proceeds go to help communities in Panama, where the dye is sourced from the Genipa Americana fruit.
Inkbox’s Kickstarter campaign has already surpassed its $15,000 goal and raised almost $150,000, proving that temp tattoos are an ingenious and lasting idea.
Tell us in the comments which tat you’d rock!
