Over this past weekend I learned about this new product called Momentary Ink Tattoos. The company that manufactures them is amazing. What they are is a company where you send in the design for a real tattoo that you're thinking about getting but you're not 100% sure about yet and you plug in where you want to put it on your body, how big you want it, and things of that nature. They create this product for you and ship it to your house! They even ship for free in the US! The company uses this special solvent used in real tattoo ink so that its permanent enough so that you can see if it's something you genuinely want to get tattooed on your body, but it also comes off in about two to three weeks (depending on how well you take care of it) so that you can get rid of it if you don't like the idea of ever getting a real permanent one or you didn't really end up liking the tattoo. I think this is an excellent idea as that step in between thinking about a tattoo and actually getting one, especially if you're in the workforce like I am and a decision like putting something permanent on your body like that could make or break you depending upon how you do it. I purchased one and got it just the other day and i'm in LOVE with it! I got a quote from an artist that I really enjoy and it's one of the best decisions I've ever made. It even looks like a real tattoo. I was comparing it to the realistic nature of my best friends real tattoo in the exact same place (our ribs) and it looks like we got them done at the same time and I've had mine for months. I truly think that if you're even considering getting a tattoo, to buy one of these first as a trial run. As soon as mine is completely faded, I'm heading over to the tattoo shop by my house and getting it done for real!

I actually have been wanting a tattoo for a while. I found the ones that I do want and gave a lot of time to think about it but Im still hesitant about it. After reading this i feel like this might help a lot of people with problem. It will give them a sense of assurement in where and why the want it in the first place.

This is such a great idea. I got my tattoo when I was 18 with my family and while I still like it, the tattoo does not mean as much to me now as it did then. I wish I would have known about this before I got my tattoo because I probably would not have gotten mine. I think if people do a "trial period" it would really help them decide if it is something they really want.

Hi Kristina! This is a really cool topic and I didn't even know something like this existed so thanks for sharing! I think it's a great product because a lot of people end up getting tattoos they regret and then have to spend a ton of money getting it removed. This product would save people a lot of trouble and money. I'm actually thinking of trying it! Anyway thanks again for sharing.
