New BDSMers and those curious about restraints will enjoy the look and feel of the Inked Tattoo Wrist Cuffs. Made with velcro as the binding material, these cuffs are easy to place on yourself or your partner without the hassle of fiddling with buckles and straps. If you're a rough player and like to have your partner struggle and pull against restraints, I'd steer clear of these since they're light and a bit flimsy.

Use

The Inked restraint tattoo wrist cuffs by California Exotics are soft neoprene cuffs that will fit a variety of wrist sizes, though if you have larger wrists these may not fit properly and could also be uncomfortable. These restraints are best used for some light BDSM play and can even withstand some rougher play, though if you intend to have a hard and heavy session with your partner I would invest in some restraints that are made with buckles and leather (or leather like material). These cuffs are easy to use and good for both beginners to BDSM play as well as those who are a bit more advanced but looking to have some lighter bondage equipment in their collection.

Design / Craftsmanship / Material / Size / Fit

These soft 8" in length cuffs are made from a neoprene/nylon mix for added comfort during use. The cuffs are easy to place on your partner and have no buckles or clasps whatsoever. There is roughly a 3" portion of the cuffs that are made of a velcro pad (the little rough part that sticks to velcro and other materials) that attaches to the velcro on the underside of the cuffs. The 3" portion leaves for a bit of adjustment when placing on your partner, though, again, if you have larger wrists I would invest in a different pair of wrist cuffs.

The neoprene that makes up the cuffs is soft and plush, giving a bit of cushion when playing. The cushion isn't much, though, as the velcro and velcro pad tend to rub against the skin and cause a rather unpleasant experience. Attached to each cuff is a piece of pink nylon, sewn into the cuffs, with metal o-rings for adding clasps, D-rings, etc. for stringing your partner up. The cuffs also come with one clasp to connect them together, so I would suggest getting some D-rings from your local hardware store to add a bit of variety to your play with these cuffs.

These cuffs are well made, for the most part, though they are a bit uncomfortable after extended play with them on, especially if you're strung up and struggling against your partner.

Performance

Truth be told, I was not impressed with these cuffs in the least. I'm a muscular girl and, while my wrists are about average, I find that these cuffs are better suited for people with smaller wrists. My partner and I used them as intended and they were comfortable for a while, though I got tired of the brush burn I was getting from the velcro against my skin. Loosening them up, though, did the trick and alleviated some of the irritation I was feeling, though not by much. These cuffs served their purpose of keeping me bound with nowhere to go while my partner did as he pleased, but as far as using them in a rougher session of play, as we will do in the future, I won't be using these.

These cuffs both met my needs and expectations but failed to at the same time. They are functional and serve their purpose, though the fact that they're uncomfortable after a while really turned me off and almost ruined the experience I was enjoying with my partner. If you intend to only use these for light play in the bedroom, I recommend them. If you're a heavy player, I would suggest looking elsewhere.

Care and Maintenance

When cleaning these cuffs, I would suggest just rubbing them with a warm washcloth and a bit of soap and letting them air dry. They can be stored with other BDSM toys in a trunk, bag, drawer, etc. If you store these with things that have cloth material or anything that velcro could catch onto, they're easy to remove and won't ruin anything.

Follow-up commentary
I've gotten used to the tighter fit that these wrist cuffs have, though I've used these more for a fashion statement than function. If you're looking for cuffs for function, I would steer clear of these. If you're one who's more into a fashion statement BDSM product, these cuffs might be right for you. All in all, you get what you pay for in terms of quality.

    Thanks for the review...while these are very appealing to the eye, I don't think they are what I am looking for.

    Thanks for the great review. Do you think they would fit someone with a very small size wrist like me? These are too cute and I don't wanna pass em up, but might be too big for me.
