SKIN46 | Get Your Loved Ones Under Your Skin, Literally!

Be Part Of The Tattoo World's Biggest Revolution With Tattoo Ink Made From A Loved One's Hair!

Our loved ones become a part of us, shaping us as we develop into ourselves and become who we are. They “get under our skin.” Until now, this has been only figurative, but with SKIN46, our loved ones can “get under our skin” physically too!

Extracting medically clean carbon from the hair of any human or animal (from your child, mother, father, significant other, sister or brother, brothers in arms, bro's - or - your dog, cat or horse – anyone at all!)SKIN46 makes a tattoo ink that is 100% safe and clean.

Made in Switzerland, SKIN46 tattoo ink is made with respect to the Tattoo Ink Regulation of Switzerland (which is the world’s most stringent regulation for tattoo ink) in addition to the recently updated Tattoo Ink Regulation of the European Community and the regulations of all major countries where tattooing is popular, such as the USA, Canada, Australia, and Japan

We have conducted and passed additional heavy metal compound and PAH (polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon) contamination testing as well!

SKIN46 is based on patented technology as published on WIPO.

A public notary from Switzerland witnessed and testified to the process and method.

WHY SKIN46 INK

Two simple questions and you know why:

  • Do you love somebody?
  • You feel comfortable with the feeling of having your loved one under your skin - lifelong?

Yes? Then do it, feel it, be proud of your love and show it!

You will feel the difference to any other or tattoo under your skin and deep in your heart.

First timer? SKIN46 ink will be the right reason to do your first tattoo.

HOW IT WORKS

It's simple for you!

You just take a 5 gram / 0.17 oz of your loved one’s hair and send it to us. We then break down the hair to medically clean carbon, produce your tattoo ink, and send it back to you.

WHY KICKSTARTER

Now, we are turning to you, Kickstarter, for help raising CHF 20,000. These funds will cover the costs of launching SKIN46 and setting up a b2b platform for Tattoo Artists & Parlors worldwide.

But, our Kickstarter campaign is about far more than funding. As we introduce a completely new innovation to the market we need to get the voting of the crowd behind us! And the only true voting that is valid is the purchase of the product

No poll or market research can replace YOU as part of the crowd in giving us a true opinion by supporting our idea and product! Therefore we will offer special Kickstarter-Rewards in exchange for your support!

Together we will bring this special way of making a personal connection and honoring true love sooner on the market. You are accelerating SKIN46 in the best of ways!

Thank you very much for your support!

OTHER WAYS YOU CAN SUPPORT  

Aside from making a monetary contribution, you can show your support for SKIN46 by sharing our campaign on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and any other social media platforms you use.

Know any tattoo enthusiasts? Make sure they know that they can now incorporate their loved ones into their ink in a novel and exciting way!

WHY BRAND NAME SKIN46

The brand „SKIN46“ refers to the fact, that every person´s identity is determined by the personal and worldwide unique set of 46 chromosomes. So our figure „46“ stands for the singularity of every person as every SKIN46 ink is also a unique peace of manufacture.

Risks and challenges

We are beginners on Kickstarter, but we have over 30 years of experience in the industry. Building up new manufacturing facilities for complex products, even for custom-made products in a serial and at a top-level professional standard is familiar to us.

Perhaps the biggest challenge to what we are doing is gaining acceptance of our technology. SKIN46 is perfectly clean and safe, but we understand that it will take time to educate people in this regard.

Our whole team is passionate about tattoos, which is why we are going to keep on working to see SKIN46 through to fruition!

We are fully aware of the potential risks in setting up this very new and innovative process and know very clearly all our control points to guarantee a custom-made and 100 % safe product.

With your appreciated support our upcoming manufacturing units, our manufacturing facility, and our one-of-a-kind process will meet and even top the strictest regulations in the world.

We will take all the upcoming challenges and will meet all standards and the strictest regulations worldwide. The worst thing that can happen to us is, is that it takes more time to install our manufacturing units and to adapt the manufacturing facility to our high standards.

Thank you for your support in helping make this become a reality! We are excited to take this step with you – the Kickstarter community!
