You Can Finally Get That Tattoo You Always Wanted Without The Commitment
Always wanted to get a tattoo, but afraid of taking the plunge? Let us introduce Momentary Ink.
Finally! A way to decide whether your brilliant tattoo idea is actually worth the commitment.
Momentary Ink founder, Jordan Denny, created the brand after wanting to get a tattoo with his wife.
"In March of 2015, my wife and I were interested in getting tattoos to commemorate our time living in Austin, TX but I didn’t know what to get or where on my body to get it. That's when momentary Ink was born," Denny said.
These custom temporary tattoos seriously look like the real deal. Ordering is simple: just submit an original concept or existing design on the site.
You'll be contacted by an in-house artist who will work with you to figure out exactly what you want, and then your design will be on its way. You'll get instructions along with your designs so you can get the perfect application.
Your temporary tatt will arrive in the mail within a few days. Prices will vary depending on size and color.
Denny hopes to change the tattoo industry with Momentary Ink.
"Regarding the future, we plan on becoming an alternative to the traditional process of getting a tattoo, a new process that allows you to "try before you buy" so you can find the perfect design and placement for your permanent ink before making committing for a lifetime. With interest from several tattoo shops only 2 weeks after launch, we're well on our way toward making this a reality," he said.
Unlike other temporary tattoos, Momentary Ink products come with a sealing and mattifying solution, included with every design.
The sealing (blue) and mattifying (red) solutions are what make the temporary tattoos look matte like a real tattoo. They also help to keep the tattoo on for a longer period of time than a usual temporary tattoo, which will help you decide if the style, size and placement are right for you.
Here's what it looks like after first application (left) and after I applied the mattifying solution (right).
All in all, I'd say that the tattoos really do look real once you apply the two solutions. They definitely aren't perfect in terms of detail when you look super closely, but they're better than any other temporary tattoo. If you're trying to figure out if a particular size or placement is right for you, you should definitely give these a shot.
Whether you're looking for a simple and grey design or something more elaborate and colorful, Momentary Ink gives you the best test drive without the lifelong commitment.
Plus, if you want to try one on for an event (they'd be great for Halloween costumes,) you'll get a high-quality design that you'll love.
