Ultimately, your design will end up on a transparent background once it’s printed. Our designer allows you to edit the image size and add text and shapes, but not remove parts of a design. We know that it's not always easy to remove the background from your design but we can help! Just add details about anything you want removed in the design notes section before you add to cart and we'll take care of it!
We do not accept tattoos on people’s bodies as it’s just too difficult to deliver a great product (plus we don't want to steal artist's hard work)! Images that are exclusively white ink should be avoided as well, as they will print transparently. Please avoid making complex requests for design changes, as they may result in your design being put on hold.
If you are interested in working with one of our Tattoo Artists to create a completely new piece please submit the 'Work With Artist' form on the Get Started page.
There are quite a few factors – like the detail in your tattoo, where it’s applied on your body, how well you take care of it, etc. – that go into how long it will last. That said, you can expect your tattoo to last anywhere from 2-5 days (though some customers have worn their design for weeks!). We’ll provide some tips on how to make it last as long as possible with your shipment! The first 24 hours are most sensitive so be sure to avoid friction with your Momentary Ink during this period.
We’re so excited to be working with really unique, colorful, and complex designs. We typically work with tattoos 6×6 inches or less, depending on the location of the tattoo. For instance, a 6×6 inch tattoo on your leg will come out much better than one on your shoulder. We are still working toward a great product for sleeves and large back-to-shoulder tattoos, but we typically have no issues with most other designs!
Because our product is coming in contact with the skin, we took the safety concerns very seriously. During active development, we consulted with a chemist, a health practitioner and several printing professionals who all agreed that the ink in contact with the skin is of little worry because of the limited exposure (3-10 days) and the underlying adhesive substrate, which bonds the ink to the skin (and is widely distributed for children’s temporary tattoos), as well as the sealing solution that contacts the outside edges of the tattoo, all of which are FDA approved. That said, we recommend those with chemical sensitivities to test a small portion before applying a full tattoo.
