New Year’s Resolutions: easy to make, easy to break. Stay motivated for your goals for 2018 by wearing them on your sleeve—literally.  A semi-permanent tattoo from our collection can keep your resolution on your mind (and body) so that you stick to it—for two weeks at least.  For these common resolutions, we’ve got the perfect tattoos:

Resolution: Eat Healthier

Trying to make better food choices in 2018?  Whether you’re intent on cutting out unnatural sugars or adding more produce to your diet this year, these tattoos will remind you to put only good foods in your body:


“An apple a day keeps the doctor away.”  Ink yourself with this honeycrisp apple to remind yourself to reach for natural sugars like fruit instead of unnatural sugars like soda and candy.  First comes tattoo, then comes feeling great.

Planning to hit the books this year?  Whether you swear you’re finally going to read War and Peace or want to read more hard news and less entertainment gossip, select one of these tattoos to keep books at the forefront:

Keep yourself on-schedule with this hourglass design.

Resolution: Be Mindful


Mindfulness is to be conscious and aware. Maybe your resolution this year is to pay more attention to yourself. What is your body telling you? How are you feeling? Taking a little bit of time everyday to connect with yourself can be extremely rewarding. Try it - for a couple minutes a day, focus on breathing and how you're feeling in that moment. 


Breathe | 2.5 x 0.5 inches | $21



Inhale the future. Exhale the past. Inhale positivity. Exhale negativity. Inhale confidence. Exhale doubt. Repeat until you're feeling zen AF.

Resolution: Be Your Own Biggest Fan


No matter what your resolution is for 2018, you can rep this design to encourage and inspire yourself. You're fully capable of whatever you set your mind to, as long as you believe in yourself.


Confianza2.0 x 0.5 inches | $19



While a new year is often exciting, sometimes it can bring up some negative feelings. Feeling stuck in the same place you were last year? Are other people achieving great things and you're left feeling a little lost? Comparison is the thief of joy, so this year, stop paying attention to what others are doing. Know that you are enough, exactly who you are.
