About Time is a selection of poem-tattoos by award-winning poet Imogen Wade. These poetic tattoos consider the passage of time as an idea that you can wear on your skin — the temporary nature of the tattoo reflects the temporary nature of body itself. The tattoos are enclosed in a biodegradable film pouch. Designed by Astra Papachristodoulou. 


Instructions: Remove the protective transparent foil. Make sure that skin is clean & dry. Place the design face down onto the desired area and place a wet sponge firmly onto the paper. Hold for around 30 seconds and then gently slide the paper off.
