At inkbox, we’re building a global tattoo brand that's focused on giving people confidence through self-expression and creativity. We launched 3 years ago with our proprietary semi-permanent tattoo. Today we have an artist marketplace with over 70 artists selling their own tattoo designs, a custom platform that allows customers to create their own tattoos, and a storefront. We’re proud to have shipped over half a million units to customers in over 150 countries through our vertically integrated headquarters here in Toronto. We’re part tech company, part beauty brand, part manufacturing facility, and 100% unique. You won’t find a company like us.

We’re looking for a PR Manager to aide our marketing and growth teams in generating outsized returns on earned media.

People already talk about our brand on social channels (check out #inkbox on Instagram), it'll be your job to make sure the media is talking about us too.

This is all part of our 3 year mission to make temporary tattoos cool by programming them into culture. inkboxes are the ultimate identity good. We believe by weaving fashion, culture, and entertainment into our ecosystem, we will change people’s behaviour around tattoos - taking them from a permanent reminder to something more fluid: a tattoo that changes as you do.
