It all started with a photo of the first Tatcha Skin Care clipart that appeared in the spring of 2015.
It was taken by artist Alex Wodak at the Fashion Institute of Technology, in New York City, where he had worked.
The clipart was based on a tattoo he’d done for his mother.
“I did a couple of iterations of the tattoo on my hand.
And then I realized, I don’t want to use ink, I want to do skin, so I tried to do a skin mask,” Wodac says.
In order to create a tattoo that would work for his tattoo, Wodack needed to create something more like a skin care product, but he wanted to create one that would also mimic the tattoo’s color, texture, and size.
The artist created a clipart using ink on a canvas, then took a picture of the skin.
He created a photo with the skin color blue and a different tattoo with a different color, using a pencil and marker, and then colored the skin in the image using a color brush, and that’s what he used to create the skin care clips.
When he received the clipart from his mother, Wodoak was inspired to create an app that could replicate the tattoo artist’s design in real time.
The app, Tatchas, launched on Google Play in early December and has already had more than 3.5 million downloads.
The app is currently in beta, and you can sign up to be notified when it is ready to go to the App Store.
For those who might be unfamiliar with the concept of a tatchare, it’s basically a skincare product that mimics the skin of a tattoo artist.
In the cliparts that Wodank created, he was using the same type of ink he used for his tattoos, but instead of a traditional ink, he used a color called ink that is usually found in tattoo studios, and used the same size and shape of the ink, but with the added benefit of using less pigment.
Tatchas is available in five different colors: blue, green, pink, red, and white.
It also has an app for Android that allows you to customize the color of the app’s icon, but unfortunately the app doesn’t have any additional customization options, including color coding or a search function.
Wodack says that he is looking forward to seeing the app in the app store, and it’s still early days for the app.
There’s a ton of potential for the skincare app to take off in the future.
We’ve been getting tons of feedback from customers that they love the app, and we’re really excited to see what people come up with.
