The temporary tattoo grows up; inbox is a fruit-based tattoo that looks similar to the real thing but without the consequences of one

Tattoos are a high-risk gambit: you don’t really know how good one will look until you’ve gotten one, and then it’s too late to change. Inkbox looks to change that by allowing users to try on fruit-based ink tattoos that appear 12 to 24 hours after application and last for one to two weeks.

The service, currently a Kickstarter campaign, delivers blank, dark tattoo applications that will receive a graphic design from 1/2 inch to 5 inches. Once the user chooses where the tattoo will go, he peels off the back like with a bandaid, applies water and holds with pressure for 10 minutes. Skin remains blank for up to a day, after which the tattoo appears just as it would with “real” skin art.
