Gen Z daters are using STAMPS with names, numbers and Insta handles

The end of swapping numbers! Gen Z singletons are STAMPING strangers’ skin with their names and Instagram handles on nights out

  • Women are buying personalised stamps with their name, number, and Instagram
  • TikTok users have been using this as a new way to find dates out of lockdown 
  • Customised stamps, available from £7.40, can take away any awkward rejections
  • One teenager received ‘hundreds’ of replies after ‘stamping’ men on a night out 

TikTok users have gone wild for personalised stamps that ink a singleton’s social personal details on potential love interests.  

Women from across the UK have taken to the platform to share videos of them unboxing their customised ink stamps, available for as little as £7.40, printed with information like their name, number and Instagram handle.

The idea is to use the stamps to ‘brand’ someone who catches your eye with your information so they can look you up on social media.   

Devotees say the method avoids the potentially awkward rejection that comes with approaching someone in a more traditional way.

Annabel Smith, 19, used her new stamp on a day out drinking in Newcastle and shared a video showing her cheekily stamping men on their forehead and face.

Annabel later filmed herself scrolling through Instagram follow and message requests, suggesting the trick had been a success.

She received hundreds of messages and likes from people she had impressed during the day and captioned her video: ‘This is your sign to get a stamp with your Instagram on for hot girl summer’.  

Her video has reached nearly 250,000 views, 42,000 likes and 2,700 comments in the six days since posting it.

Viewers loved the idea, with one writing: ‘We’re getting one of these and we’ll do it on your bday bottomless brunch.’  

Another posted: ‘Needed for our night out when you come stay with me for the weekend. Be so funny.’

Others joked: ‘Imagine your man comes home and he has one of these on him.’ 

Meanwhile Abena Etwi, 23, who is from Amsterdam and goes to Leicester University, ordered a playful stamp with ‘You’re fine, hit me up… Certified hot girl,’ as well as her Snapchat and Instagram handles.

Miss Etwi said stamping someone instead of telling them you are interested helps with shyness and breaks the ice.

She has not used the stamp since buying it but will be making use of it this summer.
