Prinker Prints Temporary Tattoos Directly Onto Your Skin

SketchOn, a South Korean startup, has developed a temporary tattoo “printer” that applies custom-designed temporary tattoos directly to the skin.

“Prinker” is a wireless mobile printer that uses non-toxic ink to print the tattoos, which last for a few days. The startup says the nontoxic ink is safe to use on children and on all skin types. Not only does it offer a fun design project for kids, but is helpful for those considering more permanent art but want to test the waters.

Prinker can pair with a smartphone which allows users to print their own designs directly to the skin. Users can also choose from an online art gallery app if they’re out of ideas.

Prinker is expected to be available for purchase next year at
