CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - When you think of getting a tattoo, you think of it as a permanent decision.

That may no longer be the case.

A start-up company called Ephemeral says they've come up with a new temporary tattoo.

They use ink that is designed to break down and disappear after roughly a year.

The smaller molecules inside the ink die off slowly where, by the end the big molecule, your tattoo, slowly fades away.

The ink itself would cost you an extra $100 or so outside the procedure, and could be available by 2018.
