All Ephemerals will 100% fade away. Your body's natural response to the ink may mean that you are able to remove the ink faster or slower. This paired with the placement and your chosen design will affect your fade timeline.
All of these images are to illustrate the difference between individual journeys in the same time frame.

Ephemerals Fade Away
Our ink breaks down and is naturally broken down from your body so fades will vary from person to person, but your Ephemeral will 100% fade away or your money back.
We promise your money back if your Ephemeral tattoo lasts longer than three years.

We believe you will love your Ephemeral the moment you leave our studios. If there’s an opportunity to make it even better, whether by adding a small detail or perfecting a line, we’re happy to do so.
We now offer a complimentary touch-up within 60 days of your appointment.
Tattoos that Last At Least a Year
Our earliest prototypes lasted days, then weeks, and eventually months. Today our tattoos are vibrant and last longer, but still without the commitment.
We guarantee a complimentary replacement tattoo if your Ephemeral lasts less than a year.
These promises reflect our belief that you’ll love your Ephemeral. Full stop. And that no matter where you fall on the fade range, your tattoo will 100% fade away.
How does this ink fade on average?
After the tattoo is applied, enjoy your new art at its full vibrancy. After a few months, you may see it starting to fade. Our ink breaks down and is naturally removed from the body at a non-linear rate, which means that the fade may be drastic at first and then appear to be slowing later.
70% of Ephemeral customers can expect their fade to complete in under two years.
How do you measure where you are in your fade?
We use this tool to determine where someone sits in their current fade timeline.
Because of the non-linear reduction rate of the ink, your time in each phase won't be the same as the others in your journey.
