Moreover, is Blacklight Tattoo Safe?
Are black light tattoos safe? The FDA has not approved UV ink as being safe for humans. Some advertisements may suggest this, but this ink has only been approved for use in fishing and agricultural industries. There are no reliable studies that have been done on the safety of using this ink for human tattoos.
Secondly, can you get a tattoo in invisible ink?
If only an “invisible” colored ink is used, a black-light tattoo will blend with your skin color and barely be visible during daylight. For people who work in a conservative environment it’s a way of having a tattoo without irritating management.
What is the blackest ink?

What is a black light tattoo? Yes, black light tattoos indeed glow — but only under black lights. When I turn off the lights at night, my tattoo doesn’t glow in the dark like the star stickers you might have put on your ceiling as a kid.
A “black light” doesn’t produce much visible light, so you‘d think maybe it would work as a night light. But what you need to remember is that a black light produces a lot of invisible ultraviolet light. This ultraviolet light can, with continued exposure, result in sunburns. It can damage your eyes.
Vitamins, Fluids and Chlorophyll Vitamins A and B, niacin, riboflavin and thiamine all shine under black lights. Blood, semen and urine contain florescent molecules, which make them visible under black light. Grinding up plants into a chlorophyll-type paste makes them illuminate a red shade under black light.
Since black inks used today do tend to have different base pigments, it is possible to have your tattoo turn a slight green or blue color over time. We don’t mean a few years, though – this tends to happen over decades as the skin ages, sheds and moves, so it’s essentially the same risk of your tattoo fading with age.
It’s a common misconception that all white ink tattoos glow in the dark or under the black light. White ink on its own will not show up under black light. In order for your tattoo to glow under UV light, UV ink needs to be added to the white ink.
Black and grey are the hardiest tattoo colours. They are dense and bold and their appearance lasts longer than colours. In contrast, the most vibrant colours such as hot pink, yellow, light green tend to fade faster.
Squires explains that it takes multiple passes to get white ink to show up under the skin — which is perhaps why white tattoos have a reputation for being more painful. White tattoos also fade quicker than regular tattoos and may yellow over time as the ink is broken down by the body.
Any tattoo can be covered up, although it may need to be faded with laser tattoo removal first (usually only 2-3 sessions required). Even if you have a large, solid black tattoo, a good cover-up tattoo artist will work with you to create a strategy for covering it with a new design you can get excited about.
So, how much more exactly are they? Again, price varies greatly depending on the specific tattoo you have in mind and the time it’ll take to complete it, but as a ballpark, Cook explains that he’d generally charge about $50 to $100 more for a fairly-standard $200 tattoo, if he’s working with UV ink.
