Our Story

What happens when you want a specific tattoo but know that future-you wouldn't approve? You can either get the tattoo and leave future-you with regret or leave your skin alone and miss out on the self expression.

This is the problem we faced. Why wasn't there an option for wearing a true temporary tattoo - one that gave you the look and feel of a traditional tattoo, without any of the commitment?

So we set out to create it. 

After months of research we came across indigenous tribes deep in the jungles of Panama who, for thousands of years, have been tattooing their skin with the pulp of a fruit. They call it Genipapo or Huito. 

We worked with these local tribes to bring this ancient form of tattooing into the future. We call it inkbox.

We're proud to donate a percentage of every sale to support these tribes through the Darién Initiative.

Alex Kim - Fulfillment Coordinator. He's got two first names like Ricky Bobby, meaning he sends out orders lightning fast!


Jennifer Howe - Fulfillment Coordinator. She makes the ink and puts it into the tattoos with a baker's precision... we're just waiting for her to bring some brownies into the office.
