If you’ve had an idea for the ideal tattoo in your head but just aren’t sure if you’re ready to commit, then you might want to get onto EasyTatt.

They’re a company who specialise in getting designs made up as temporary tattoos so that people can test out their ideas before they get inked for real.

Lasting up to 10 days, they’ve got over 7,000 temporary, waterproof tattoos in more than 50 different categories in their library.

All you have to do is order your design online, and it’ll arrive along with a bottle of EasyMatte liquid. You apply the tattoo then slather the liquid over the top to take the shine away – the telltale sign of a temporary tatt.

The business is the dreamchild of Pascal Ward, 26, from Adelaide.

He believes that this 10-day try-before-you-buy experience could lead to fewer people regretting their tattoo decisions.

Many tattoo artists – especially big shot artists – have long waiting lists that can sometimes be as long as six months. By the time many eventually get to their appointment, they feel that they have to go through with it…even if they’ve begun to feel doubtful about their designs.

‘When you get a tattoo, they draw the design using a stencil on your first, and they follow that pattern with the (tattoo gun),’ Pascal tells news.com.au.

‘Those can take hours, and some people feel like when the stencil is done but they don’t like it, it’s too late to say no. We want to make it easy for people to test drive for a fraction of the cost, and a lifetime commitment.’

It also gives people the chance to hammer out the final details of what it is they exactly want.

‘A lot of people come to us and they know what they want, but they’re not sure about the size or the placement.

‘They know they want it but they’re not sure if they want it to be 10cm or 12cm. I think that’s another really handy part of our service.’

Of course, it’s not the end of the world if you do have a proper tattoo that you regret. You can have it removed…at a price.

It costs between £850 – £1,400 to completely remove a tattoo through surgical excision, while lasering costs about £200 a session and isn’t guaranteed to ever totally get rid of the tattoo.
