Temporary Permanent Tattoos: ink of the future?

07 May, 2013

Medical researchers at Harvard University have invented a temporary permanent ink. Sounds confusing?

The idea seemed good at the time, however in reality, uptake of this ink has been very low. Laser tattoo removal works by shattering ink particles that are ‘sensitive’’ to a particular wavelength. Different ink particles and colours require different lasers and wavelengths. ‘ Freedom ink’ addressed many of these issues, however inventors of this ink should take into consideration that in reality, tattooist create tattoos not to have them removed in the future. Additional tattooist mix, and layer ink, and use colours suited for their clients design and skin colour.
