I love tattoos. Big, small ready-made designs – show me your ink, and nine out of 10 times I’ll be in it. As for getting my own ink set, well, that’s another story. It’s not that I’m scared of needles (although they’re scary, right?), It’s more the fact that once I finally decide to get a tattoo, there is practically no turning back. What if, in 10 years, I hate it?
Fortunately, however, there is a solution for others like me, and it’s called Easy.ink. Easy.ink, a start-up based in Hollywood, Florida, has created a form of temporary tattoos in various trendy designs (small ear tattoos, finger ink, etc.) that last up to at – wait – of them weeks. These semi-permanent works of art, made from the ink of an organic fruit from the Amazon called Jagua, are waterproof (shower and sweat resistant) and last longer than a typical work week.
Tattoos are actually patches formulated with a medical grade hypoallergenic adhesive that are applied to the skin just like you would a typical temporary tattoo from your childhood. The difference with Easy.ink, however, is that the patches should be left on the skin for a few hours until you start to see the design show through. Once the art is fully developed, remove the patch, and just like that, you have a whole new piece of art.
Sounds cool, doesn’t it? Unfortunately, Easy.ink temporary tattoos are not yet available. The startup is currently busy raising funds through a Kickstarter with a goal of $ 15,000. Once the founders reach their goal, they plan to create more models to sell to the public. So until then, you can scroll through Easy.ink’s recent art below for the ultimate ink.
