    I was debating getting some of my next tattoo done up in blacklight ink...

    Looking to get the outline of a few stars done in the blacklight, but the rest filled in with regular ink. So even without the blacklight you could still see the tattoo.

    Basically similar to this

    It hasn't been extensively tested yet. There's documented cases of it causing some severe reactions in peoples skin. I know of 3 or so people with black light tattoos and all of them say that they've experienced some sort of negative side effect with the tattoo.

    This is what my artist told me...then I found out he was talking about ink that hasnt been changed. I had him look at some new inks that have come out (forgot the web address), but he called the studios that use that ink and they all reported 100% satisfaction.

    I am not saying that UV tattoo's are all solid, but there are new inks out there that are not supposed to have the side effects the older UV inks had trouble with (permanent itch and redness)

    I am looking to get some back work done in UV ink, probably some molecular structures done in UV to only show up under a blacklight.

    I've always wanted to get the outlines on my arms done in backlight ink but I'd really rather not risk it. maybe some day they can figure out how to encapsulate uv active particles in something more biocompatible but until then I think I'll just wait.

    I have some of my tattoos outlined in blacklight ink, and I definately regret it. For starters, I had to get them outlined twice, once in black ink, and the a second time with the blacklight ink. Also, they sometimes itch and almost burn like crazy.

    This type of thing is why I first wanted a UV tattoo. I saw a guy at a rave with his complete bone structure showing under UV light. It was insane, and detailed nicely.

    None of the good studios here will do UV sensitive tattoos because they are unsafe. I heard they were a carcinogen.
