Our Story, Skin Deep

What happens when you want a specific tattoo but know that future-you wouldn't approve? Two things can happen:

  1. You can get the tattoo and leave future-you with regret.
  2. You can leave your skin alone and miss out on the art and self expression that comes from wearing the tattoo.
This is the problem we faced. It bothered us that such an ancient form of self-expression hadn’t seen any technological innovation in generations. Most specifically, why wasn't their an option for wearing a true temporary tattoo - one that gave you the look and feel of a traditional tattoo, without any of the commitment?

This is exactly what we set out to develop.  

After months of research we came across indigenous tribes deep in the jungles of Panama who, for thousands of years, have been tattooing their skin with the pulp of a fruit. They call it Genipapo or Huito. 

We worked with these local tribes to bring this ancient form of tattooing into the future. We call it inkbox™.

We're proud to donate a percentage of every sale to support these tribes through the Darien Initiative.
