If you miss your tattoo artist more (or about as much as) your colourist or nail technician, know that there are also ways to experiment with tattoos at home – without any commitment or scary equipment you don’t have. have not. I do not know how to use. Talking about the time, Ariana Grande-endorsed tattoo artist Mira Mariah, better known as Girl Knew York, teamed up with Inkbox on a collection of 40s-inspired temporary tattoos named at aptly titled Stay Home Knew York.
Known for her fine lines and whimsical styling, Mariah created 10 new designs for the collaboration, all ranging from $ 18 to $ 20, including cheeky bathroom scenes, boxes of lysol, toilet rolls and setting.

“These designs were all designed to romanticize my own quarantine experience. The small collections of magazines, indulgences and mood were all inspired by my own experience,” Mariah told NYLON. “This time is incredibly complicated. I have focused on the little luxuries that bring moments of joy and peace to my mind during this time, and hopefully, to others.”
This is not the first time that the artist has collaborated with the start-up of ephemeral tattoos, but it is the first time that his work has included a restitution component. For every Stay Home Knew York tattoo sold, $ 2 will be donated to the Food Bank For New York City, an important cause for Mariah who has been overwhelmed with working to end the hunger crisis resulting from the pandemic.
“Inkbox is committed to helping artists and communities. Creating a project that has helped me reach my clientele at a time when I couldn’t otherwise is extremely helpful, [and] helping me support the Food Bank of NY has an impact on who I want my job to be. ”
