Cool Tattoo Styles and Types

Ultraviolet tattoos, also known as UV tattoos and blacklight tattoos, use a type of ink that glows when it is held under blacklight. The tattooing process is identical to that of a regular tattoo, but when the ultraviolet tattoo is held underneath a blacklight in the dark, the pattern becomes visible.

In normal light, the UV tattoo is invisible. However, before getting a UV tattoo, it is important to remember that as with any tattoo, some scarring might occur, which makes the design more noticeable.
