    I'm having a hard time finding anyone in the tampa area that will do UV inks, i know the FDA has an ever expanding approved list of UV inks.. BUt are artists still really that cautious on using them? (And i can see why, UV tends to be a bad thing, especially on fair skinners).

    I'm wanting a pin stripe design, inked in a solid black and red, or black and blue, and then gone along side it in UV, so the pinstripe shows up in both light and dark environment.... Pinstripes go well with one of ym favorite hobbies and past times, hot rods and mini trucks, and its something I've thought of for a very very very long time.

    Below are two examples of the type of stripes im talking about.

    An example of my friend mikeys work,

    He striped Mexican'ts tat on his arm then the artist went over it.

    ALSO see the AD symbol at the bottom of pic two? Thats an auto club I formed 3 years ago, and a few of us OG's that are in it are wanting to get tattoo's, I'd like to get mine in a dark blue with a UV outline or fill as well.


    The AD will be my first of MANY, I'm working with someone on a left half sleeve totally dedicated to my parents and sister.


    I'll be 23 December 2, and one of my presents to myself are finally getting this done


    Opinions on the UV? Tacky or just go solid coloring?

    Many reasons, mostly a safety issue though. I know the FDA has approved the pigments but people are still having negative reactions to them.

    You know that UV does not equal glow in the dark right? You will have to have a UV (black) light to make it show up.

    Yes I know, I don't want a phosphor based chemical in my skin...... If I were to do it I only want it to show with a black light, and not glow all the time


    Hmm, the negative reactions is something I'm not so sure of...

    I have an allergy to Nickel Metals, and some perfumes and so on... and I've talked to a few shops about their needles and so on to be sure I not have a reaction to their stuff.

    Trhats definately something to think about

    I agree. I have UV ink in some of my tattoos. They sometimes itch terribly and my skin ends up very irritated. I wish I had done some research before getting it done.

    I'm with buttons on this one. No way in hell I'd let any of my friends get UV ink with all the negative reactions I've seen and heard about.

    My best friend has UV pigment in his forearm. I'm pretty sure its "Chameleon" brand pigment which is the top rated one. He has no allergies or sensitivities at all BUT his UV tattoo gets insanely raised and itchy when it gets brushed too hard or if he's in the sun too long.


    Edit: I love that truck except the high rise carbs. I'd like it even more with a nice 4" cowl hood. :bigthumb:

    Didn't check this thread again until now. No, my skin isn't really sensitive. I haven't had problems with itching or the skin being raised lately, but in the past it has been very irritated where the UV ink is.

    Nice truck.
    Forget the UV ink.
    Pinstripes FTW.

    if you are too worried about the UV....get a uv spot somewhere inconspicuous or something....like a spot test ;)

    wait some time and see if it bothers you at all. always go with good ink (especially for UV applications)

    i have some good friends with UV tat's, big and small, and they've only reported reactions in the healing stages, and nothing noteworthy since.

    i've planned on getting my tribals pinstriped with UV ink for a while now.

    edit: the FDA is only approving phosphorous-free UV inks now.
