Because tattoos and perfumes are traditional and outdated concepts, AMKIRI decided to blend the two together, resulting in the world’s first idea of its kind: a fragrance with its own stamp and signature.
The brand launched this past week and consists of selling inks infused with unisex smells. Created by designer Shoval Shavit Shapiro, the product was developed and refined with the help of her mother, a chemist and cosmetics expert who ensured that the final ink served the purposes of a temporary tattoo and fragrance.
“There’s no better way to express your individuality than by using your body as your most personal piece of art,” said Shapiro in an interview with Vogue. “We want to empower individuals with this multi-sensory form of self-expression.”
The ink can be purchased in two styles: one that’s easier to apply, with a wide brush, and a second one that’s meant to be used by people who are more comfortable handling paint, allowing them to create elaborate and special designs. The inks come with different scents that include spicy ginger, juniper berry, and more, and are available in charcoal and white shades.
AMKIRI’s inks are also vegan and cruelty free and meant to be easily removed even though they can stay in your skin for up to 12 hours. You can purchase AMKIRI’s wand and stencils on their website.
