Temporary Tattoos for Adults


I’m sure there is a point in everyone’s life when they look at themselves and think, “I probably should rock a face tattoo.” …No? That’s just me? Ok, ok, so maybe you don’t want to look very Gucci Mane, but I bet you have considered getting a tattoo but didn’t know if it was the right choice for you.

Temporary tattoos work, but often they are very cheesy tribal bands, sparkle fairies, or thorny roses – and it’s not really the look you’re going for. Plus, these conventional temporary tattoos start to peel off when you decide to take a shower (so basically later that day). Henna is another great option, but the designs are very traditional – I know I would feel weird asking a henna artist to tattoo Bart Simpson on my forearm (ok, once I did and yes, it felt weird.)


This is where the company ‘inkbox’ comes in. Created by two brothers, the company has created tattoos that have over 300 modern designs that actually look like something you would actually consider getting permanently on your body, plus they last for longer than a day – try 2 whole weeks.

The process is very simple and only takes ten minutes to apply. Each tattoo comes on a black sheet that can range from seven different sizes. The sheet is made up of four different layers. Once the backing is peeled away, you should be able to see the stencil of the design you have chosen. All you have to do is put on your glove (which is provided), place the stencil where you would like the tattoo to be displayed, and then use the moistened rag (which is also provided) to cover and hold over your tattoo for ten minutes – basically the same instructions for conventional temporary tattoos.


The tattoo will not show up on the skin immediately, it actually takes 12-24 hours to fully develop. This is because, unlike the conventional temporary tattoos which sit on top of the skin, the inkbox tattoo penetrates and reacts with the organic compounds in   the first layer of skin – the epidermis.

The best news? The formula is made from fruit, so it’s not harmful to your skin. The tattoos are made from the pulp of the Genipa Americana fruit. This is a practice adopted from tribes Embera-Wounaan and Kuna of the Darien Gap, Panama – which they have been doing for over thousands of years. This process is not only long-lasting, but it’s also safe for all ages. Inkbox has also pledged that for every purchase made, the company will give back a percentage to of the sale to the Darien Initiative, a charity that has been providing community and agricultural support to the tribes for over 30 years.
