IRVINE, Calif., July 27, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Prinker, the inventor of the world’s first all-in-one temporary tattoo device, is now offering a global platform for tattoo artists and studios to showcase their work and find a new following of tattoo enthusiasts around the world who may not be ready for the long-term commitment and discomfort of a permanent tattoo. Consumers are able to gain access to a diverse assortment of over 8,000 temporary tattoo options at their fingertips, and an easy-to-use instant tattoo-printing device that allows them to apply these tattoos anywhere.

After selecting a design or even uploading their own custom artwork on the Prinker Content Platform or mobile apps on the Apple App store and Google Play Store, users can slide the Prinker device directly across their skin to instantly print on water-resistant temporary tattoos. Prinker uses proprietary cosmetic inks that can easily be removed with soap and water, and are certified by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Voluntary Cosmetic Registration Program (VCRP) and EU Cosmetic Product Notification Portal (CPNP).

Temporary tattoos are no longer the remit of generic cute designs and sports logos, as Prinker offers users the complexity and creativity associated with tattoo art. Prinker’s current lineup of contributing artists is primarily based in Asia but in the future it hopes to expand to other parts of the world.

Among Prinker’s most popular tattoos are a collection of designs from Opium Studio in Seoul, South Korea, that offers users a range of styles from text-based artworks to highly stylized contemporary tattoos, while Tattooist Hwasu from Busan, South Korea, focuses on more traditional designs with an Asian flair, some of which are inspired by Korean folktales. 

Users seeking more delicate and floral designs may be drawn to the pastel tattoos by Hong Kong artist Mini Lau, while minimalist tattoo fans will without a doubt enjoy those from South Korean artist Pia, whose work focuses on dot art. Seoul’s Cogcog Tattoo collection offers several distinct design styles including graffiti stencil, watercolor, and line art.

Each artist has contributed dozens of designs to the Prinker tattoo catalog, which means that users will be able to choose from a wide variety of shapes and styles. The freedom of Prinker’s temporary tattoo device also allows users to experiment with tattoo creation and apply it on themselves or others.
