I’m afraid of commitment, so I got a Made-to-Fade tattoo

The ink itself is a great achievement. Josh Sakhai, co-founder of Ephemeral, explains that the ink took six years of research and development to make and has gone through many different iterations since. You can also feel good about what’s happening on your skin. “Every single one of the materials in our ink is already FDA approved for use in medical devices, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals,” says Sakhai. “No tattoo ink is approved or regulated by the FDA. That said, we took a ton of precautions because for us it’s super important.”

Although it penetrates the dermis, or inner layer of your skin, just like a normal tattoo, the ink has some major differences that make it special. “Permanent tattoos basically clump together and clump together and become these larger blocks of ink that are too big for your body to remove,” says Sakhai. “So they remain permanent. Ephemeral ink does something similar and goes into your skin and clumps together, but our ink is made from biodegradable components that break down over time and which [they] break down, your body is able to remove them.”

So far, Ephemeral only has black ink, but Sakhai says other colors are on the horizon. Once the ink is mixed, it is put into a tattoo pen.
