Toronto startup reinvents temporary tattoos

Remember when getting a tattoo meant squishing a warm washcloth on your arm for what felt like hours? Toronto startup Inkbox will let you relive that nostalgic feeling as it brings back temporary tattoos in a fashion-forward way.

Inkbox is the brainchild of Toronto-based brothers Tyler and Braden Handley. The two are currently running a Kickstarter crowd-funding campaign and aim to raise $20,000 by Aug. 28.

Unlike many of the shimmery, metallic temporary tattoos that permeate summer music festivals, Inkbox's product lasts for two weeks and it comes in hyper-trendy designs such as arrows, feathers and EKG lines. Inkbox is also organic. The Handley brothers make their tattoo formula using jagua fruit, which they source from the DariĂŠn Gap in Panama.

The application process is similar to the temporary tattoos of your childhood. Only with Inkbox, the tattoo takes between 12-24 hours to appear. It develops over time, like a Polaroid picture, and naturally fades away.
