From an email:

“Ephemeral – the tattoo studio that has pioneered made-to-fade ink – opened the doors of their very first D.C. studio, March 6th!

Launched in 2021, Ephemeral offers the first made-to-fade tattoo ink that lasts at least a year. Applied the same as a regular tattoo (by an artist, with a needle), Ephemeral offers the same artistry and self-expression as traditional tattoos, without the lifelong commitment opening the art of tattooing to the 60 million American adults who have considered a tattoo but are ultimately held back by the idea of its permanence – as well as those with permanent ink looking to try a new means of playing with body art.

Hours: Open 10 AM – 8 PM, 7 days a week
Book appointments here

Bridging the gap between conventional ink and temporary tattoos, Ephemeral ink is made from medical grade, bioabsorbable, and biocompatible polymers. Over time, the ink particles become small enough to be naturally processed and removed by the body.”
