A New Type of Temporary Tattoo Magically Lasts For Two Whole Weeks

Temporary tattoos are a fun because the regret usually only lasts a couple of days. But a pair of brothers from Toronto have created a new kind of temporary tattoo that’s just as easy to apply, but actually last a full two weeks through showers, swims, and daily life.

The Inkbox tattoos are applied just like the temporary designs you’ll find on sites like Tattly. You peel off a protective backing, press it onto a clean area of your skin, dampen it with an included wet towelette for 10 minutes, and then peel it all away. Just don’t be alarmed when there’s nothing on your skin afterwards.

That’s because the Inkbox tattoos, made from 100 percent organic fruit (the actual recipe is a closely guarded secret) don’t sit on top of your skin like a traditional temporary tattoo. Instead, the ‘ink’ actually stains the epidermis, the top most layer of your skin, by turning organic compounds in the tissue black after 12 hours. That’s why your skin actually appears blank immediately after application—but also why these temporary tattoos are able to stick around for about two weeks.

The Inkbox’s staying power does mean you’re limited to monochromatic designs and hard-edged shapes. There’s no color, at least not yet, and no shading either. The visibility of the temporary tattoos will vary depending on your skin color, and if you want to remove one, or at least expedite the fading process, it can only be done by exfoliating your skin twice a day. The brothers, Tyler and Braden Handley, have also chosen to go the Kickstarter route with their new creation, attempting to raise $20,000 for an initial production run.

The good news is that they’ve already shattered that funding goal, and with a donation of just $18 you can pre-order one of the designs with a delivery expected as soon as October later this year. Eventually the brothers will allow anyone to submit custom designs as well so you can finally tattoo your partner’s name across your chest, without having to commit to anything long-term—including the relationship.

Man Tattoos Image Of Hearing Aid On His Head To Support 6-Year-Old Daughter

We’ve found the most incredible candidate for Father of the Year! A New Zealand dad of a hearing impaired little girl got a tattoo of a Cochlear implant on his head to match his daughter’s two hearing devices. So sweet — see the pic.

Charlotte Campbell, 6, is deaf in her left ear and got her first Cochlear implant two years ago. But she also has a condition that limits her brain’s ability to process sound in her right ear. As a result, she got a second implant put in, so that’s when her dad Alistair decided he’d show his little girl that she’s no different from anyone else. He got a tattoo of a Cochlear implant above his left ear to help Charlotte feel more normal.

Alistair has no other tattoos, but he had his head shaved for the precious inking. “Hey my hair can grow back,”  he told the New Zealand Herald. The paper says that when Charlotte saw her dad’s tattoo, she “giggled, touched it and said it was cool.”

The loving dad shaved his head to get the tattoo and says that while he’ll grow his hair back, he’ll gladly shave it again if his little darling wants to see it. Charlotte’s mom, Anita, says she wasn’t surprised when her daughter was diagnosed with hearing issues as their eight-year-old son also wears hearing devices.

The story has blown up on social media with other parents sharing stories of how they’ve gotten tattoos to help their children with medical conditions feel more normal. One Facebook user named Yasmine said, “My son has a heart condition which has required 3 open heart surgeries so my husband got my sons scar tattooed on his chest so he didn’t feel like he was the only one. My son loves it…good on you dad! Your little girl would love it.”

Another user named Kristen said, “I have a friend that has done the same thing for her daughter. I thought it was amazing.” Thousands of others praised Alistair for being and “awesome dad” and what a “beautiful example of love” his tattoo is for his little girl.

Temporary tattoos become high-fashion accessories for grownups

If you're wondering about that tie-dye butterfly your most stylish friend suddenly has inked on her shoulder, don't worry — it's probably fake.

That's right, temporary tattoos are all the rage among the fashion set, even showing up on the red carpet, usually reserved for the most elite (and expensive) designers. Model and actress Cara Delevingne wore a fake tattoo of red flowers winding up her arms and chest, paired with a sleek black jumpsuit, at this year's Met Gala in New York.

Even Beyoncé is getting in on the action, launching her own collection of temporary ink with Flash Tattoos.

 "It's not just about wearing a tattoo, it's about wearing a work of art on your body," said Yng-Ru Chen of Tattly, one of the most popular temporary tattoo brands out right now.

The Brooklyn-based Tattly sets itself apart by working with renowned artists to commission one-of-a-kind designs.

 "We're kind of like a gallery for them," Chen said. "We don't take submissions. It's a carefully edited and curated process. We take a lot of time and consideration into whose work we admire as an artist, and who we think will translate well to the skin."

The company is making a name for itself in the event space, working with brands like SoulCycle and Lululemon, and institutions including the Brooklyn Museum and MoMA PS1, to make customized tattoos for parties. Tattly also makes personalized tattoos for weddings, Chen added.

 The New York Times recently highlighted the trend and Tattly's place in the market, but many brands are starting to offer temporary tattoos that scream high-fashion — not kids' birthday party.

Two Canadian brothers are raising funds for a tattoo that lasts a full two weeks, called Inkbox, a way to see if you want to commit to the real thing. And temporary tattoos are also showing up on the runway, having been used in shows by Chanel, Victoria's Secret, Tommy Hilfiger and more.

 Chen suggests it's temporary tattoos' affordability that makes them an attractive accessory.

"Ours are two for $5, most of them," she said. "Having that price point allows people flexibility to change it up every once in a while. Or every day if they want to. It's fun. It's a way of expressing themselves without having to buy a brand-new outfit or a new pair of shoes."

7 Ways You’re Ruining Your New Tattoo

Now that you have your new tattoo, you’ll want to take good care of it! As a collector, you need to be aware of a few things that can turn a beautiful work of art into a disappointing mess. The first week of healing is critical to how your piece will look for the rest of it’s life, so let’s take a look at some things that should be avoided during this time…

1. Over/Under-Caring

You may not realize, but there’s a fine line between over-caring and under-caring for your tattoo. After removing your bandage, you should gently wash your new tattoo with an antibacterial, fragrance free soap & hot water. When you exit the shower, be certain not to rub your tattoo with a towel. Let it dry on it’s own.

Every tattooer has a different method to heal their tattoos, and this is really due to trial and error.  A regimen that may work perfectly for you, may work terribly for a friend – and vice versa.  If you choose not to “dry heal” (use no lotion or ointments) a fragrance free lotion should do the trick. What ever product you choose to use, avoid the temptation to slather on more than the recommended amount.  Ointments like Vaseline and A&D suffocate the pores, making it hard for the skin to breathe. Your skin needs to breathe to promote and speed the healing process – which is why most professional tattooers will recommend lotion, or butters such as Aquaphor, Lubriderm, After Inked, Redemption, Hustle Butter, Aveeno, Bapanthem, (if you hail from the UK)  or Unrefined, Cold-Pressed Coconut Oil for sensitive skin types. The more organic & natural, the better for your skin… ingredients you can pronounce… seriously.

2. Sleeping on top of your Tattoo

So, if you get a tattoo on your back, you need to sleep on your belly for a few days…  If you can sleep with your tattoo exposed, that would be best.  If not, you can place a clean thin towel between you and the sheets. If in the morning your sheets are stuck to you, follow the same instructions as a stuck bandage, don’t peel the sheet off, take the sheet with you to the shower and wet it off with cool or lukewarm water.

3. Touching

This one is pretty self-explanatory.

Our hands and the hands of our friends, family, lovers, and children are all equally filthy.  Do not touch your tattoo unless you have freshly washed your hands. Keeping your tattoo clean is Rule #1 in the healing process and washing your tattoo a few times a day will avoid a potential infection.

4. Submerging

During this two week healing process, you will also want to avoid prolonged water contact. Yes, of course you can shower, and washing your tattoo a few times a day is encouraged – but you shouldn’t submerge your tattoo in baths, hot tubs, swimming pools, or salt water. Standing water = unhealthy bacteria & irritants . Icky. You’ll want to avoid all of that during your first 2-3 weeks with a tattoo.

5. Sunburn

Sunblocks and screens are typically not formulated to protect wounds and the like. You will feel your fresh tattoo burning if it’s exposed to sunlight. Listen to your body, if your tattoo feels hot and irritated, stay out of direct sunlight.  If you must be out in the sun, keep that baby covered.

6. Picking & Scrubbing

Your tattoo isn’t falling out and there is no cause for alarm! Scabbing is a very normal part of the tattoo healing process.

DO NOT PICK THE SCAB. Don’t scrub it either.

Scabbing will typically be the same color as the pigment that was used. If you pick or scrub your scab, you risk pulling out the color or causing hypertrophic scarring. Let the tattoo heal by itself. Patience young Padawan.

7. Not asking for advice!
Professional tattoo artists do everything possible to ensure safe tattooing practices. However, we are not medical professionals. If weird shit is going down with your tattoo, don’t hesitate to consult with your artist or a doctor right away.

And there it is. While there are a ton of ways ruin a new tattoo, these are the top 7 culprits. Exercise a little care, and common sense and you will enjoy your tattoo for years to come.
