As the name implies, Momentary Ink specializes in creating temporary tattoos of your design and choosing, and will send you a temporary tattoo in the mail that you apply yourself. Unlike real tattoos, these guys only last a week and can be applied without any needles. The company allows people to essentially "test out" their designs to ensure they don't make the horrible mistake of branding themselves with a tribal design or a Marilyn Monroe quote.
Starting out at around $15 for a four-inch design, Momentary Ink's tattoos are applied like run-of-the-mill temporary tattoos, but last longer with the help of a sealing and matting solution.
Unlike the temporary tattoos you'd find in a pack of Cracker Jacks, you can create ornate and colorful tattoos on your body by simply uploading a design or chatting with their in-house tattoo artist team. Lasting anywhere from three to ten days, the ink comes off with just a little bit of baby oil and will save you the lifelong embarrassment of having "Hotline Bling" tattooed on your arm.
Plus, if you don't like it, they'll send you a refund. Quick poll: how relevant will the lyrics of "Hotline Bling" be in ten years? Asking for a friend.
