“Light it up like dynamite” with temporary tattoo company Inkbox’s newest collection, created in collaboration with BTS. The new collection draws from the themes of the group’s Grammy-nominated single, “Dynamite,” and kicks off a year-long partnership with HYBE IP, formerly Big Hit IP.
Eleven individual tattoos will be released as part of the collection, and fans will easily be able to identify elements from “Dynamite’s” music video and single artwork, from the BTS members’ silhouettes, to retro flowers and shooting stars. Every order of the tattoos will also include one of three collectible 8 x 10-inch prints and special BTS packaging.
The semi-permanent tattoos mimic the appearance and feel of a genuine tattoo, and Inkbox says the tattoos can stay visible for up to two weeks. The company says the tattoos are skin-safe, waterproof, and cruelty-free, “creating a safe, unique way to express oneself.”
“Inking a deal with a partner as iconic as BTS is incredibly exciting for the Inkbox community,” Inkbox CEO and Co-founder, Tyler Handley tells Rolling Stone. “Our brand is all about self-expression and inclusivity, and we think BTS celebrates those same values—making this the perfect mash-up for our customers.”
BTS has always been known to spread messages of self-love and self-expression through their music and styling. They’ve been champions for self-acceptance as well, and the group recently spoke up to denounce the surge of anti-Asian racism and violence. “We recall moments when we faced discrimination as Asians,” they wrote in a statement. “We condemn violence. You, I and we all have the right to be respected. We will stand together.”
Pricing for the BTS Inkbox tattoos range from $16-20 each, and the complete set of eleven tattoos retails for $130. The collection will be available starting April 14 on Inkbox.com. You can also join the waitlist to be the first to get the BTS tattoo collection here.
