During quarantine, it’s easy to get bored, so many may want to spice up their life by getting tattoos. Yet, the worry of regretting it, later on, may deter some from making the leap.
位於紐約布魯克林的「短暫刺青店」(Ephemeral Tattoo Studio) 非常了解這些「重大」決定背後猶豫不決的原因，進而成為史上第一家「保證」顧客不後悔的刺青店。
Brooklyn-based Ephemeral Tattoo Studio understands all-too-well the hesitance behind these “big” decisions and became the first-ever tattoo parlor that “guarantees” no regrets.
To accomplish this, the studio ensures that the tattoos inked will naturally fade over 9 to 15 months.
According to Ephemeral Tattoo’s website, over six years of research by top dermatologists and chemical engineers went into designing the medical-grade and biodegradable ink solution they use.
The ink breaks down naturally and disappears when the particles are small enough to be absorbed by the body, the website says.
After a year, the ink disappears, and users can change their designs to whatever they wish. Therefore, the artists often encourage clients to express their individuality, as it’s completely “commitment-free” and judgment-free.
From their Instagram pages, one client can be seen getting a tattoo of a lucky cat on her leg while another and his mom got matching tattoos, with the word “icon” on their arm.
“The staff is really friendly and professional,” a client said on their website, while another added, “Felt comfortable the whole time”.
Others also commented on their Instagram page with some praising it as “the coolest experience”.
The studio provides a good alternative for traditional tattoos, as it takes a lot of money and a lot of pain to remove a traditional tattoo that you might regret.
However, all tattoos are currently done in black ink, so those looking for more colorful inkings may have a small wait.
The stress-free and inclusive environment encourages many clients, including people that already have tattoos and people that have never gotten one to go try it out.
