Real tattoos. Gone in a year.
Made-to-fade in 9-15 months.
Clinically Tested & Revolutionary
Ephemeral ink is made of a medical-grade, biodegradable solution. This means it breaks down naturally over time, disappearing as the particles become small enough to be removed by the body.
With 6 + years of research and testing, our revolutionary ink was developed by PhDs in chemical engineering and top dermatologists.

I’ve waited a long time for something like this and the way everything has been executed has been nothing short of great.
Felt comfortable the whole time!
The staff is really friendly and professional. The shop is light and airy and clean. My tattoo artist was very skilled and the conversation was fun and interesting. Love the pastel curtains. The quality of the aftercare products is top quality and the aftercare card was informative.

Right now all Ephemeral's are done in black as it is the most popular color, looks great with fine line work, and is preferred by most artists.
It's different for everyone! It also depends on where it is applied.
Parts of the body with a lot of nerves (like the palm of the hand) or that are close to bones (like the ribs) tend to hurt more than areas with more muscle and skin. Try pinching yourself in the area you want to get your tattoo to test how painful it may be.
