A lot changes in a year. Our style. Our passions. Who we are and who we want to become. Now, our tattoos can change with us.

We invited 12 creatives to express who they are right now with made-to-fade tattoos that disappear completely in a year.

The result? A year without regrets.
Start your Ephemeral journey. Reserve now.

Join us each week as we introduce a new creative with a unique story and new tattoo.

Meet Bebi Monsuta

It’s not just their sister energy that makes Akira and Manami a literal force, the New York-born musical duo known as Bebi Monsuta has a glowing aura around them that feels almost holy. Fusing inspiration from their culture into their music, Bebi Monsuta is a mash-up of kawaii-hop, rock, and Brazilian funk, with a soft edge. In their most recent EP release, “11:11,” their lyrics urge radical self-love and magical thinking.

“When we’re under the influence of natural earthly substances such as creativity, that’s when we feel most ourselves,” says Manami. Their Ephemerals speak to this heightened state: each sister got a symbolic reptile on their arm for both power and protection.

Together, when they’re on stage, or in front of the camera, Akira and Manami combine their power and transcend to another place—building everyone one up in their path.

Manami’s Tattoo: A snake because it represents knowledge and power.

“Our motto is ‘we have a fear of fear.’ We try to live life and do what we love without fear.”

Meet Abe

“Even if it doesn’t have a lifelong story, every tattoo has a message.”

- Abraham Winter

Abe’s tattoo: A dynamite stick as an ode to his feisty dogs, Tn’T, on his leg.

One of the first things you notice about Abraham Winters, besides his piercing baby blues, is the dedication to tattoos on his body.

Highly detailed, beautifully ornate black pieces cover his thighs - each design honoring someone special in his life. His Ephemeral is no different: a stick of dynamite to represent his two boston terriers, Tulip and Teacup, nicknamed Tn’T because of their often explosive relationship.

As an actor and model, Abe’s tattoos are both a form of self-expression and identity, the story of each piece forming an ever-evolving map through the moments in his life. He plans to keep adding to his tattoos forever. “Every tattoo has a message,” laughs Abe, “dumb or brilliant–it’s all a story.”

Who knows, maybe in a year when the Ephemeral fades, his dogs will have changed their ways, too.

“My tattoos play a part of my self-expression. They represent what I’ve gone through and my relationships.”

Meet Samia & Carmen

Samia and Carmen met on the Internet at 18. “I thought she was so cute!” remembers Carmen.

The two models instantly bonded over a love of clashing patterns and an unexpected shyness. Together, they found they balanced eachother out, pushing the other to go further and take risks.

On set it was no different. Despite it being their first time photographed together, the chemistry was natural. It led to dreams of the future - more shoots, a trip to Mozambique, maybe even a friendship tattoo.

Samia’s tattoo: Cursive script of “a heart is a heavy burden” from her favorite movie Howl’s Moving Castle.

“It’s my first tattoo and I guess I feel cooler. I like to show it off. I like when people ask what it is.”

Samia Hamps

Carmen’s tattoo: A forget-me-not flower for her love of gardening and wearing flower prints.

“I don’t think of myself as a tattoo person. But I love them. I love having a flower on me.”

Regret Nothing

Change, evolve, grow - your tattoos will too. Ephemeral tattoos last a year so you can embrace who you are for now.
