Ephemeral Tattoos

Ephemeral is a new form of tattoo ink that lasts a year and then goes away! If you’re one of those people constantly thinking of getting a tattoo but haven´t had the courage to go through with it because of the lifetime commitment, this year-long solution could be of interest. The key is the size of the pigments used in the ink, co-founder Anthony Lam explains "What we have done differently is encapsulate tiny dye molecules - much smaller than the pigments used in traditional tattoo ink - in a multicomponent sphere made completely of biomaterials”. Ephemeral is a two-part system, involving an ink designed to break down after a year, along with a separate removal solution. Both application and removal can be done by tattoo artists using their existing equipment.
