At minink, we attach great importance to the quality of our products and the satisfaction of our customers. Therefore, we recommend following these tips to achieve the best possible result and enjoy your temporary tattoos to the fullest.

We recommend that you apply your fake tattoo to an area with little body hair to achieve the best possible result. If you decide on a hairy area, we recommend that you shave it first.

To avoid skin irritation and achieve the best possible result, you should wait 24 hours after shaving before applying your minink tattoo. This gives your skin enough time to recover from the shave and ensures that your tattoo looks clear and sharp. At minink, we attach great importance to the satisfaction of our customers and therefore offer high-quality temporary tattoos that are easy to apply and skin-friendly.

Choosing the right place for your temporary tattoo can have an impact on how long it lasts. On our How It Works page, we've created a helpful chart that shows you how long tattoos last on average on different areas of the body - both when they're fresh and when they start to fade.

➡️ How It Works

Remember to choose the placement of your tattoo carefully! You only have one chance to get it right. 😉

Yes, absolutely! Our Jagua ink from minink is designed to work on all skin colors. 😊

Our special ink interacts with your skin and develops a beautiful black color within 12-36 hours. Initially it appears in a soft blue tone, which then gradually deepens to a more intense black. As with real tattoos, the darker the skin tone, the weaker the contrast.

In fact, the sauna can even be beneficial for your temporary tattoo. However, we advise you not to rub the tattoo dry after a sauna session, but to dab it off carefully. It is also advisable to treat the tattoo with a moisturizing lotion after the sauna. This will keep your minink tattoo fresh and expressive for longer. 💦

Of course you can also wear your minink tattoo in the sun. 🌞 It is important that you do not rub the tattoo dry after sunbathing, but gently dab it off. We also recommend moisturizing your skin well after sunbathing - this applies not only to the area with the tattoo, but to your entire body. A well-moisturized tattoo on well-moisturized skin simply looks best! 😊

For a minink tattoo, it is essential that it does not come into contact with water for at least 8 hours after application.

minink's special ink interacts with your skin and begins to turn an intense black within 12-36 hours. Initially, the tattoo appears in a delicate blue tone, which develops into a rich black over time. This process ensures a natural-looking and long-lasting temporary tattoo that perfectly matches your individual style. However, water in the first few hours will prevent it from being absorbed into the first layer of skin. So wait for the next shower after application.

At minink, our temporary tattoos are designed for a one-off application. But that doesn't mean the fun is only once! With our wide range of designs that are constantly updated, you can keep trying out new looks and constantly reinvent your style. Our tattoos are easy to apply and last up to two weeks, so you'll have plenty of time to enjoy them before moving on to the next one. And the best part? They're completely painless and safe for your skin. So, why not choose your next look at minink today?

The most effective way to remove your minink tattoo is to gently exfoliate your skin - a mixture of warm water and sea salt is highly recommended! Alternatively, you can also use a mild body scrub or a soft washcloth.

It is important that you always treat your skin with care and stop rubbing as soon as you feel any discomfort. At minink, we attach great importance to skin health and therefore always recommend listening to your body's signals.

Our ink contains ingredients that you may not have tried on your skin before. In very rare cases, this can lead to an allergic reaction.

If such a reaction occurs, it usually manifests itself as slight skin irritation. In this case, we recommend stopping use immediately. A soothing cream can help to relieve the irritation and prevent scratching. Normally the redness should subside after a few hours. However, if the itching, burning and/or redness persists, we advise you to consult a doctor and follow their advice before reapplying the tattoo ink.

If the ink accidentally comes into contact with your eyes, rinse them out immediately. At minink, we attach great importance to the safety and satisfaction of our customers, which is why we are always available to answer any questions or concerns you may have. Feel free to write to us at
