Want to create your own tattoo this summer?  Use our freehand ink, and check out the fun-sized designs artists have come up with for inspiration ink: 


1. Tiny Little Friendship Hearts

Some friends paint each other’s nails; other friends get matching tats.  If you usually play it safe with mani/pedi session, our 2-week tattoos are the perfect foray into a cooler girls night in.  And these tiny hearts are a cute way to start your tattoo journey off.


2. Ink-Dipped Fingertips

Give your hands a healthy dose of ink like Instagram user @modern_in_the_middle did.  With our freehand ink, your fingers and hands are a blank canvas on which to unleash your coolest, most abstract ideas.  Because summer’s for trying something new.


3. A Special Skyline

Honor your favorite city with a miniature skyline that you can show off whenever you hail a cab, point someone out in a lineup, or flip off the jerk ruining your day.  From New York to LA, from Toronto to Seattle, celebrate the urban hub that made your summer memorable with a freehand skyline like this one.


4. Tiny Lines, Shapes, and Arrows

This summer, give each of your fingers a unique upgrade with custom lines and shapes, like these the artists on the left, center, and right did here. These ideas are subtle enough to rock at any affair, but cool enough to make you stand out.  Gone in two weeks, temporary finger tats will be the new nail polish, mark our words. 


Or, start with one of our tattoos, then add on to it with our freehand ink for a cool adaptation that captures your style, like this:
