Black light tattoos

Posted by April on 09/04/05
Portland, OR, USA

I heard about black light tattoos and I would really love to get one but, I have heard some pretty scary stories about people who had really bad reactions to them. I really want one but I'm not sure how safe they are. So if any one knows anything about them, good or bad, I'd really appreciate the input.

From what I've heard the black light reactive tattoos are only reactive for the first few weeks before the skin has completely healed over them. But like I said this is only what I've heard, not sure on any complications with the ink itself though.

In my shop we provide this service this ink UV ink is a very complicated ink and not everybody will be able to work with it is due to the fact that if they can't work good with regular ink this UV ink is harder. The ink is more watery and you need a black light to do this work and is hard to see and the problem why some people may have what some people call a skin reaction is because some artist have the tendency of digging into the skin and over working the area irritating the skin, I have never had a client have a reaction to the UV ink but every skin is not the same and I hope I never have a customer develope some sort of reaction to this ink. Now if you really want to have this work done, please try to understand that some people believe that by having this ink in there skin you may not be able to notice it during day time and that is a mistake you still will notice it and also you can not mix the UV INK with the regular in to make a new color, you can use it in a combination and the resault is amazing. For more information and questions that you may want more answers please go to bodyartstores.com or UV ink for tattoo on the World wide web and they will give you a list of a lot of companies out there that sells this ink and have photos and information on this and other inks but the first one I gave you will give you the actual ingredients in this type of ink I hope I can be of some help to you. Take care got to go a client is here got to work.

About the ink being reactive only during the time that it heals is not true please read about it on the www search for UV ink and check the fotos that is true is not as brite on some people because Iike I tell all the time every skin is deferent and heal deferent and some take longer than other and each person have a deferent reaction to every thing they put in or on their skins I for my self can tell you I have a regular tattoo enhace with UV ink and the ink looks as good as when I applyed it 3 years ago and I will recomend it to anybody that wants it. Now my friend if you find out of some ink that is not doing its job the way it is suppose to be doing it is because the person that made the mixing in the ink did it wrong. But is like anything else UV ink is safe and some company sell UV ink regulated by the FDA UV ink was used to track Fish and Animals by science and the goverment and the human body accepts it like food in it and this is a fact. I hope I had been a help to you. Now as far as I know and I may be wrong and if I am please correct me in this I believe that UV ink is the only ink regulated by the FDA if there is any other ink regulated please let me know who and where can I find this so I can read and study about it.

I got a blacklight tattoo on my wrist about a year ago. when I first got it it was really bright and then it scabbed and whatnot, its not as bright as it used to be but its still bright. as to my bodies reaction to the ink, it healed and was fine for awhile but then in the corner of the star I got I had a small infection for about 2 weeks but I just kept it clean and now its beautiful and has no imperfections.

Hi Sweetyohs14 I see what you are saying about your tattoo see if people do what you did when they notice a problem with their tattoo they will end up with a good tattoo, I wish some people will take care of their tattoo like you did I mean they went to the pain of getting it they payed for it and they asked for the tattoo. Why ignore it and not take good care of I just don't understand some people. As for you I am glad that your tattoo situation was put under control due to your prompt reaction and good after care please write down here how you took care of it just in case some one else is going to the same problem that you went by. Thank you for your input.

Blacklight tattoos can be bad if the artist uses the wrong ink....plain and simple. I have had blacklight tattoos for over ten years now with no bad reaction. The ink must be a non phosphorus based ink and should have an m.s.d.s. sheet...Material safety data sheet. This tells what is in the ink and what reactions could be present. I love myt blacklight tattoos...and can be seen at www.etattoo.org

black light tattoos are hard to come by but i have a good friend that has one that's pretty sick. However they seem to fade fast and if not done right the reaction under the black light is not that strong. I personnaly find them fasinating and would like to add one to my collection of tattoos if i can find a good artist.

It is true that many black light tattoos' and glow in the dark tattoos are very dangerous and have been known to have scary adverse reactions. Although a glow in the dark tattoo ink that is safe enough to put permanently put into your body has yet to hit the market, a UV Black Light Reactive tattoo ink has. Is it by Crazy Chameleon and can be found at http://www.crazychameleonbodyartsupply.com/. I could sit here and go on about what’s so great about it, but I’ll just let you visit the site and read all the FAQ's and Safety innovations for yourself. If you have any questions on the product please feel free to let me know.
By the way, if the black light tattoo is something your really consider, I would highly recommend purchasing this ink yourself and personally taking it to your artist of choice and letting him or her know that this is the ink you would like him or her to use. This will prevent any complications and will make them more willing to do the tatt since most artists don’t perform them because of previous safety issues. DO NOT use any random fluorescent ink that your artist may have. It may contain phosphors, EverGlow or other dangerous products you don’t want in you.

to see what they think about it or if they will even use it...Doc

My friend and I both got different sized blacklight tattoos and neither of us has had any problems or negative things to say about them. Just find a good artist!

If you are looking for a safe black light ink, I recomend Chameleon. It has been tested by the FDA for 11 years with no adverse reactions.
You can order it from their website.

It's my understanding that the ink WAS approved by the FDA-for use on marking fish, it's not been tested for safety for using as tattoo ink. Myself, I'm leary of any product that tries to use misleading info to sell their product.
I have yet to see any work done with 'black light ink' that actually looked good, far more of the attempts were badly scarred and I'd seriously
suggest anyone thinking about having that stuff used on their body do some very careful research beforehand, not just read the rather self serving
information on the website that peddles it.

No the stuff is NOT FDA approved ...only for use on animals...but then again no tattoo pigment IS approved by the FDA for use on humans...

In the past year I have seen a few tattoos done with the Chameleon colors and for the most part they all look pretty good and some were a couple years old and still looked decent.

I guess I would have to say to stick with an artist who is familiar with the pigments and be sure he is using the good ones ( Chameleons)

I did some digging on the FDA.GOV site using the keyword UV ink

http://www.fda.gov/consumer/features/tattoos120607.html

http://www.fda.gov/oc/opacom/hottopics/tattoos.html

it's still not approved but neither are henna tattos and those have been around for centuries. Of course the diff being henna is natural.

One thing I hadn't thought of is a UV reaction to MRI scanners or other magnetic or light reactive treatments.

RE:Black light tattoos

Posted by redhead from IP: 71.11.83.31 on 07/10/08

I got a black light tattoo 3 years ago now I believe. (I've lost track...) To be more specific, I had black light ink added over a tattoo I had done several years ago. I have not had any problems with it as far as a reaction, but there is ALWAYS a risk, however small, that someone will react to a tattoo. You are putting a foreign substance in your skin, and especially if you have sensitive skin, there's a chance your skin could react.

That said, it's a risk you take with any tattoo. Mine also lasted for much longer than two weeks. It has gradually faded in the years since I got it, and I believe the ink doesn't last forever, meaning it will eventually fade out unless you get it done again.

There's only one other thing I would caution you about. When I had mine done, I had the ink added over an existing tattoo, a small, simple piece. The artist followed the outline of that tattoo and filled in parts with the black light ink. However, he told me that is most definitely the way he would recommend doing it. The actual black light ink is invisible (unless mixed with colored ink), but if the artist does a transfer and then goes over that with the tattoo, you can end up with a slight shadow effect from the needle pushing the transfer into the skin, and it could be slightly uneven as well. You NEVER want to let an artist freehand a tattoo on you without a transfer, ESPECIALLY not with an ink that is invisible unless under a black light. And I understand the Chameleon company does sell colored inks with the black light ink mixed in, but the artist who did mine said those colors tend not to be as good as regular ink and tend to fade quicker and not last as long. (I think they also may not shade as well, or something along those lines.) His advice, if you're getting a black light tattoo, was to have the ink added over an existing one like I did (and he actually did not want to do my black light tattoo until I explained that that is how it was done). He said too, with the transfer first, you can very well end up with a shadow effect and not the invisible tattoo you are expecting - a draw back for people getting them in very obvious places but thinking they will be invisible during the day.

I was just as intrested in blacklight tattoo as alot of people are so about 2 years ago. I bought the ink online and started looking for a artist that was willing to try it. After about a month of looking and singing alot of waivers for liability I found an artist that was willing to take a chance with it. Now almost 2 years later my right arm is done in half a slevee, my left arm is almost done. I have two tattoos on each hands and the virgin mary on my back. Keep in mind all my work is done in blacklight ink and I haven't had any bad skin reactions. I took care of my tattoos like any other person would keeping it clean. My plan is to have all my tattoos in this ink and I'm no where near done seeing I want my whole upper half tattooed. If you would like to see some pictures just email me and I'll be happy to send you them. You tell me what you think?

There is no such thing as FDA approved tattoo ink PERIOD! There may be ingredients in the ink that is FDA approved. The reason its harder to work with is because it's a colored resin/plastic and has no hyde making it harder to adhere to the needle, henceforth harder to put into the skin.
I have some invisible ink in my leg from Skin Candy that's over 8 years old,
and still glowing like it was put in last week. Check out www.skincandy.net they have a short film of the owner actually getting it tattooed on his own arm on that History Channel show, ANCIENT INK. That's standing behind yer product!

I have read the MDSS for Crazy Chameleon and Hard Candy inks, and they do NOT contain phosphorus. There's a difference between glow in the dark and UV (black light) reactive materials! The current inks are free from phosphor! It's true the MDSS for ANY tattoo ink indicates it's not for use in "micro pigmentation" a.k.a. tattoo in humans!

OP - Sheesh, seems people like to speak without having the data to back up their opinions!

I have 2 UV tatts and as I am very fair skinned had them done in Titanium White. You can't see any hint of the tattoo in daylight, or artificial light. They really glow nicely under black light. I did have them done under the black light, which can be hard on the artist eyes. There was some redness while the tattoo healed though.

If you have med tan, or darker skin some of the colors would be almost invisible, but fair skin you'd see subtle color. A good estimation of how that would look would be to use office highlight markers to draw on your skin (and they glow under black light too!).

My first UV tatt is 3.5 years old, on my shoulder which gets tons of sun and hasn't faded at all! I would guess some colors may fade just as they do in traditional inks, and everyone's skin is different. My traditional tattoo that's 10 years old is really vivid, so I seem to hold color very well.

There's a few hundred images of UV tattoo on bmezine.com.

Any artists in Northern California doing UV PLEASE contact me!

Forgot to add this!

*TATTOOISTS REMEMBER - these black light tattoo inks are made with sterilized distilled waters, do not add foreign objects into your ink bottles!. This is NOT an alcohol based tattoo ink, so do not contaminate your inks with any other objects or products (like mixing balls).

So, they CAN NOT be mixed to create other colors, or with traditional inks! If you want a hybrid tattoo, get the traditional ink done first and then come back and add the UV reactive touches!

thx qb for the link on faq's. i've lost count on questions on why my waving flag isnt shaded or highlighted anywhere. like i really searched out an artist that would do a color custom uvr piece, but she just doesnt know how to shade yet.
and to the marine in japan... i hope ur waitng for states side. 1. possible risk of getting a royal dragon ink (see other thread). 2. some shops out here will give u a better rate for us veterans and esp active military.
when searching for an artist. dont get discourged on those that will spout that "government can find you easier and definate cancer" crap at you. yes i have run across that, a shop owner in utah i wont mention(we were smoking at the time also). and there maybe a few out there that still believe its all phospherous. and the boogeyman. and the greatpumkin.
as to why anybody would want a stupid suckaas blacklight tat. well, why buy a blacklight poster? why use highlighters on anything? my reason... it sticks out from the others. it gets attention. otherwise why bother putting one where it can be seen.

I have one on my shoulder and it's great except for 1) there are dots that look like fairy dust under a blacklight but in day light look like pimples. as of now (about 3 weeks later) those dots are the only part still visible after healing and 2) make SURE they use a blacklight while doing it. he didnt for mine and some parts didnt turn out.

UV TATTOOS!!!!

Posted by tattooqueen@hotmail.com from IP: 152.105.240.26 on 05/04/10

I have a UV tattoo.. it looks good when its actually near the light but when im a night club it doesnt work.. It healed quite quick (same as a normal tattoo) but I now have a big scar and cos' its on my wrist it looks like ive been cutting myself (i've actually been ased if i carved into my wrist myself lol).. I tried bio oil but it doesnt seem to work.. Although i'm quite disapointed with it i dont regret it cos' its nots visable all the time so its fine. Was thinking about getting one on my face but not so sure if its gunna scar.

We offer UV ink at our shop. We never had any complaints from the clients, but we still post that reactions can happen and have on skins sensitive to the red and yellows more so. Also Moms just put out their line of UV inks I cant wait to try. We have the little snakelights with led lights in them. you have to be very carefull not to overwork the area, and we have had clients to where the uv ink shows up brighter after proper healing.

i started playing with chameleon UV blacklight inks about 6 years ago.

i started learning to tattoo with old sewing machine needles, moving up to a boob gun, and now working with regular needles, but without a machine at all.

i have never had a single problem with the UV ink. my uv tattoos are as bright as the day they went in, where the blues and blacks of the regular inks have faded.

the healing time was fast, and i wish i could get the regular colours in the same plastic encapsulated microspheres. it is inherently more safe and less reactive.

i've also experimented with _coated_ phosphorescent pigments with success. however, these cannot be applied by machine, as the machines abrade and damage the plastic shell, exposing the pigment to the blood, and destroying it.

hardcore Black light tattoos

hardcore UV tattoos or blacklight tattoos are tattoos made with a special ink that is visible under an ultraviolet light (blacklight). Depending upon the ink, they can be nearly invisible in non-UV environments, thus they are a popular consideration for people seeking a subtler tattoo. They are particularly popular in the raver subculture.

Although the tattoos are sometimes considered invisible in normal light, scarring from the tattoo machine in the application process may remain, and therefore still show. A UV tattoo becomes visible under blacklight, when it glows in colors ranging from white to purple, depending on the ink chosen. Colored ink is also available, where the ink is visible in normal light (as with a regular tattoo) but the ink will glow vividly under UV light. However, some UV inks are not as bright under normal light as normal tattoo ink and are considered not as vibrant.

I had a black light tatt done recently and have had no problems with it at all. There are very few artist who do them and the one that did mine was awesome. If you're ever in the Jupiter, Fl area look him up. I would recommend him to do ink of any kind on anyone. Customairbrushing2k11@yahoo.com. He;s also on facebook. Great artist!

hey everyone,
I'd like to know if you can give me some website address to buy some UV ink. All the websites you gave above went wrong on my computer. Is that 'cause i'm in France?
UV ink are not allowed in France yet so that's why i'd like to import it.
Thanks
