We found cool gallery with UV tattoos shown in daylight and under UV light. You can see that some of them really gets a new look. UV add some magic to it.
“UV tattoos or blacklight tattoos are tattoos made with a special ink that is visible under an ultraviolet light (blacklight). Depending upon the ink, they can be nearly invisible in non-UV environments. Therefore they are a popular consideration for people seeking a subtler tattoo, and are particularly popular in the raver subculture.”
UV inks are not as bright under normal light as normal tattoo inks, and do not blend during application, as normal inks do. Their effect will be dulled if regular ink is used on top of them. Therefore, for vibrant, high impact tattoos, normal ink is normally used, allowed to heal, and then highlighted with UV inks. Only highly experienced tattooists should apply UV tattoos, and should have a blacklight available to help check their work.
UV inking takes longer than normal, due to UV inks being thinner and harder to work with, and because the tattoo must be wiped and checked under a blacklight frequently during application.
