Helping you express you

At Inkbox, we support and celebrate the story of you—for now, forever, and whatever’s in-between. Our ink develops in your skin to create a tattoo that fades in 1-2 weeks. Basically, they’re tattoos that change with you.

We know how important self-expression is. No matter who you are—whether you’re a man, a womxn, or an enby; Black, white, or brown; hurting or healing—we’re here to ensure that you have the tools you need to express yourself…even if that ‘self’ changes.

We live and breathe artistic expression. From icons whose work you've seen before, to underdogs who are just getting started, we celebrate the wonderful, weird, and woke artists who design tattoos for us. Each time you purchase an artist-designed tattoo from Inkbox, the artist gets a cut of the sale.

Back to the beginning

Brothers Tyler and Braden Handley founded Inkbox back in February 2015. Like so many other twentysomethings, they were thinking about getting tattoos but weren’t totally sure what they wanted. Their styles, tastes, and opinions were constantly changing. They wished there was a tattoo that could change with them.

After countless long nights of research and several (failed) science experiments in the kitchen of their tiny apartment, they learned about something that sounded promising: a fruit grown in the forests of Panama. Locals were already using it to dye their skin!

So they packed their bags and hopped on a plane to meet with the Darién Initiative, an organization that worked with the indigenous people of Panama’s Darién Gap. With the help of this initiative—and the incredible tribes within the region—the Handley brothers tested the fruit-derived ink that would eventually evolve into our For Now Ink™. We no longer use the fruit in our ink’s formula, but while we did, the Darién Initiative ensured we were harvesting it sustainably and giving back to their community in meaningful ways.

Fast forward to today. A patented tattoo technology. A team of over 100 employees in Toronto, Canada. More than a million tattoos shipped to customers in over 167 countries around the world. We know that every tattoo we ship out tells a story, and we’re so grateful that we can help support and celebrate the story of you.
