Hi Paul,
I agree with Mark - have read about it - but there's no guarantee of what's in it!
I would steer clear!

I've had a uv tattoo, the tattooist was using skin candy uv inks. I found the tattoo took quite a bit longer to heal than usual, the tattoo process itself looked no different, the ink did look pretty thin though. Unfortunately it seems as if its fading now, had it done over a year ago and its getting pretty dull, i'll probably touch it up myself. Oh and you will need a blacklight/uv lamp to see what you're doing if you're using the 'invisible' ink, which glows blue under a blacklight

i agree with Dawn and Mark, the only benefit i can see about glow in the dark tattoos are if you do a lot of clubs, it's not like you would want to sit in the dark looking at your new tattoo.

hi
the uv colours have been around for a few years now and i would not go near them , will be good to see what they go like after a few years , don't think i would like them in my skin ...:icon_rolleyes:.so i would not use them in my customers either.
