Stand out from everyone else

Did you know that some tattoo parlour offer a special ink that when under a UV light glows, this can be great fun especially if your in a crowded nightclub.

There are two types of glow-in-the-dark tattoos. Although neither one glows on its own, both types light up when exposed to UV light (also known as blacklight). Other than this similarity, however, they look radically different when viewed on their own.

Invisible UV Ink

Most glow-in-the-dark tattoos are technically invisible, though they may appear slightly raised or red on the skin until a black light is shown on them. It is possible to layer invisible tattoo ink over or under regular tattoo inks to get a glowing effect. UV inks are made from fluorescent ink and, if made correctly and safely, they do not contain phosphors or other toxic chemicals.

Colored UV Ink

Colored UV ink looks exactly like a regular tattoo when seen in natural light. Under UV light, however, the ink will glow, turning the colors to a more florescent palette. Colored UV ink is often used in conjunction with invisible ink for a striking effect.
