Glowing UV power light tattoo

Gimpie-Modo‘s neck glows when he’s turned on under a blacklight… This UV ink tattoo was done by Jo at Spunky Monkeys in Newport Pagnell, UK. By the way, Josh (who you know from the eyeball tattooing) is considering trying UV in his eyes!

  1. Has anything ever come of the argument that UV ink may be harmful over the long term? It seems more and more people are getting UV reactive tattoos, so perhaps there is more informatin out there now?

    Either way, it looks pretty cool =)

  2. i’m such a nerd
    i ADORE this

    so how old exaclty is UV inking? i’m scared to put something like that into my body.

  3. Seconding #1′s question about information. The more UV tats I see here on modblog, the more and more I want one. If Josh is considering UV in his eyes, I can’t imagine that he would do so without being sure there aren’t side effects (other than… y’know, obvious risks from eyeball tattooing)

  4. White things tend to glow under a black light anyway, don’t they? I don’t think a UV tattoo in your eyes would make much of a difference. Although on top of the blue ink already there it would probably have an interesting effect.

  5. ive got lots of uv stars on my leg a uv compass uv necklass uv powersign and gettin a my leg tattoo done with uv details

    and i have very reactive skin can only use certain washing powders and stuff so this stuff has to be safe if i can use it.

    plus it looks cool at clubs

  6. UV eyes- be very careful. I once wore some UV-reactive contact lenses around a UV light, and all of a sudden I had real trouble seeing. Even though the clear part didn’t react, there was enough “glow” seeping in from the edges of the colored portion to make it very difficult for me to see. It blinded me the same way a bright light in your eyes blinds you, but I couldn’t see much actual light.
    Still, would be a very cool effect.

  7. I had this exact idea (except maybe placed differently) It looks great and i can’t wait until i finally go get it done!
