General FAQ

Where can I stick an eSkin and Digital Tattoo?

The eSkin and Digital Tattoo has been designed to be placed on your skin. However, the eSkin and Digital Tattoo can be placed on other objects. The lifetime of the eSkin and Digital Tattoo will vary, based on the object’s surface. 

How Long does an eSkin and Digital Tattoo last?

The adhesive on the tattoos lasts five days on your body under normal conditions. It can last much longer if you apply it on other objects such as the dashboard of your car.

Is a Digital Tattoo or eSkin Tattoo safe for my sensitive skin?

Yes, we have gone to great lengths to ensure that it is safe for even sensitive skin types, using top-of-the-line medical grade adhesives and performed extensive biocompatibility testing. However, if you do experience skin irritation, please immediately discontinue use.

We use the state-of-the-art NTAG chip from NXP with the highest performance and the widest compatibility with different NFC devices.

How do I remove a Digital and eSkin Tattoo? Can I remove it anytime?

Of course! Simply peel it off your skin like you would an adhesive bandage. If you experience skin irritation, be sure to take it off immediately and discontinue use.

Do I have to tap a NFC device to a tattoo to make it work or does it work by proximity?

It does work by proximity, but a tap means you’ll always be in range.

I tapped a Digital Tattoo to the back of my Moto X device but nothing happened. Why isn’t it working?

Before you tap, make sure the display is unlocked and NFC is enabled. To enable NFC, go to Settings > More… > NFC checkbox.

What if someone steals a Digital Tattoo that I’ve synced with my phone? Can they download my master PIN from it?

If your Digital Tattoo is missing or stolen, you can unpair it in your security settings. Thieves won’t be able to download your master PIN from your Digital Tattoo because it’s stored on your Moto X, not in your Digital Tattoo. When your Moto X reads your Digital Tattoo, it only reads a unique ID (like a barcode) that allows it to unlock your phone.

How do I unpair a Digital Tattoo?

You can pair and unpair Digital Tattoos through the settings under Security > Manage NFC Unlock. You can also disable Digital Tattoos completely by going to Security > Screen lock and choosing a different way to authenticate.
