Tattoos are just one of a number of ways to express yourself. With thousands of ready-made designs available, plus the ability to design your own, there is no end to how unique your tattoo can be. And because there is no end to how unique YOU are, here is another option coming at you from the world of ink; just one more way to create your own "you."
For the past ten years or so, a new type of tattoo has been growing in popularity. The blacklight tattoo (aka the UV tattoo) is a tattoo created with special ink that glows when under a blacklight. The ink comes in different colors and is hard to see under regular light. In fact, when white UV ink is used on fair skin, it is virtually invisible. That' s right--an invisible tattoo! Think of all the possibilities!
It would be great for people who don' t want their tattoo to be visible all the time, such as people who have a job where tattoos are forbidden. It is also a perfect way to get a tattoo without having to worry about regret. When you become older and your skin starts to sag, you don' t have to be embarassed about a distorted tattoo--no one will notice it unless you' re under a blacklight. UV ink can also be used to accent visible tattoos, making them pop in the proper lighting.
In the past, there were inks circulating that contained EverGlow. EverGlow is not safe to use in tattoos and should be avoided. For someone considering getting a blacklight tattoo, Chameleon UV Tattoo Ink is the way to go. It is the only ink that is FDA approved, plus it contains no phosphors, is not radio active, does not cause cancer, does not "blow out," and the dye never touches the skin because it is encased in a PMMA shell. It has been used for nearly a decade and there have been no reports of adverse effects.

I' ve always wanted a tattoo but never got one because my parents were against it. Now that I' m in charge of me, the only thing holding me back is the fact that I change my mind a lot. This is why I' m obsessed with temporary tattoos, which I wear often. One day it' s a butterfly on my shoulder blade; the next day it' s a black rose on my chest. But now with the possiblity of getting something that lights up under blacklight, I' m once again considering getting some permanent wings on my back. First of all, I love wings. Secondly, I love things that glow. What could be more "me"?
Obviously getting a tattoo isn' t something to take lightly, even if it' s going to be an invisible one. Make sure to find an experienced, professional tattoo parlor and ask them about blacklight tattoos. Make sure the facility meets all requirements, and don' t be afraid to ask questions!
