UV Ink Facial Neo-tribal Tattoo

Vlad at Steelteam Studio in Moscow, Russia, just did this bold facial piece in UV ink that should be mostly invisible in daylight once healed. (See also: UV facial circuitry tattoo, forearm ghost flames tattoo, and an ace up his sleeve).

  1. I know that UV ink is FDA approved… for marking livestock. Human use scares me, mainly for the fact of how long the lifespan for livestock is. But that’s just me.

  2. Ghobian- The tattoo is fresh and the ink is clear. That’s pretty much what your skin looks like under the ink of every new tattoo.

  3. Is there any sort of Canadian equivalent certification for UV inks, be it for livestock use or otherwise? This resparked my interest in getting one…

  4. Ive got some UV ink done and havent had any reactions or problems with my skin, still glows nicely after about a year, some scaring can be seen where its done but otherwise hardly noticeable.

  5. That’s really nice, works well with that feral doglike shape his head has.

    Hope it heals clear for him! My test dot (wrist) is still pretty visible six weeks later, dammit!

  6. Тёма)))хреново ты тут получился надо сказать)но ты всё равно пиздатый)))поздравляю с модблоком
