For many, tattoos can be appealing, but the permanent and painful aspect may turn us away from traditional, permanent ink.

Prinker offers an interesting way around that with the Prinker M digital temporary tattoo printer. 

This little machine can instantly print predesigned artwork up to a meter in length on your skin.

However, the tattoos are temporary and wash off with soap, so you can remove them whenever possible.

If you did not find anything that you like in their design library (through the Prinker app), which is highly unlikely as there are more than 12,000 designs available for free, you can also upload your own design file (JPEG/ PNG) or draw from scratch on their app. 

The Prinker M is available on the company’s website, currently on sale for $229.

The tattoo printer will be featured at CES 2023 during the unveiled event and at the main show. Let’s see what it’s all about. 

The Prinker M is quick and easy to use

The Prinker M works similarly to the way traditional paper printers work. Thus, it uses proprietary cosmetic ink (registered with the U.S. FDA’s voluntary cosmetic registration program) to print digital designs onto your skin. 

However, you must install the Prinker app onto your smartphone to get started.

Moreover, you can browse the app’s library of over 12,000 designs to choose what kind of tattoo you want.

The library includes many designs from talented tattoo artists from all around the world.

Or you can upload your own design and even draw from scratch via the Create function on the app.

The app connects to the Prinker M device, the selected design will be transmitted via Bluetooth, and it’s ready to start printing. 

All you have to do to prepare your skin for the tattoos is apply the included cosmetic Skin Primer. Then, slide the Prinker M across your skin to apply your new temporary tattoo design. 

To wash it off, water and soap do the trick. Alternatively, make-up remover works well, as Prinker inks are made from cosmetic materials.

The Prinker M is around the size of a traditional smartphone and fits comfortably in the palm of your hand.

See Prinker at CES

The company will be at CES 2023 from 5-8 Jan 2022 at the Venetian Expo, stall #54821, to show off the temporary tattoo printer’s capabilities.

We heard you would also get a free temporary tattoo of your choice (printed with Prinker, of course) if you drop by their stall.
