One of the most interesting things about tattoos is that no two people have the same story or reason why they got their tattoo. Except when two people agrees to go get the same tattoo together as a bonding experience.
More often than not, the story behind the tattoo is just as interesting as the tattoo itself. A lot of tattoo artists admit that very few people get a tattoo just for the purpose of having one. You are maybe wondering how people have a certain tattoo on them even if it doesn’t make any sense. But once you here the story why they got that tattoo design in the first place, you will understand why they have it.That is why you shouldn’t judge people and their tattoos because you never know why they got it and what it means to them.

So what is UV ink? It’s a special tattoo ink that only glows under ultraviolet light or blacklight. These special inks for black light tattoos contain chemicals that absorb the high energy UV rays for a few nanoseconds. Then the chemicals release the energy and the tattoo glows! There are many different colors of black light or UV reactive ink. For the titanium white color, in the absence of UV light, the tattoo can be completely transparent on light skin tones. Other colors are visible in any light but glow in black light!
Here are some cool examples I found over the web of what you could do with them:
Tattoo inks are the substance that a tattoo machine places under your skin that leaves you with a permanent mark. Although its commonly called ink — it’s actually pigment which generally contain metal salts or even plastics, suspended in a carrier solution which keeps the pigments evenly mixed and easily applicable.
Some tattoo artists mix their own ink, although most buy it pre-mixed. A typical “home made” carrier solution might be a mix of a small bottle full of vodka or Listerine, etc. with a little glycerin and propylene glycol (which if improperly used, can cause the ink to separate making an uneven mixture and ruining your work) mixed into a slurry with the dry pigments.
Other common carrier components both in home made and some commercial tattoo inks include toxic substances such as anti-freeze, formaldehyde, gluteraldehyde which can cause complications and reactions to your skin. That’s why it’s always a good idea to stick to trusted tattoo inks which are proven and recommended by most professional tattoo artists around the world.
