Hand Scarab by Chronoperates Hand Scarab by Chronoperates
Now that I've got a better blacklight to take a picture under, here's a new photo of the scarab on the back of my hand. Again, with this ink on my pasty skin you can't see this under normal light.

EDIT: I put up a comparison shot for the tattoo under a normal light in the house as well so you can see that it doesn't show. :)

I'm sworn on pain of being shunned (from my overly conservative family) for life to not getting a tattoo. So I've been thinking, maybe getting a UV tattoo someday. This is SO COOL! 10/10

Are UV tattoos more expensive than standard black and grey?

The ink costs the shops more so yes they tend to be more expensive, it can also be hard to find a shop that will even do them, and only the white colored ink is "invisible".

I have to know, is this tattoo permanent or temporary? If it is permanent, this will be the coolest ink for tattoos I've ever seen.

It's definitely permanent. I have had this ink in my hand for the past 5 years or so and it hasn't faded or discolored whatsoever. I don't see my tattoo often (I'm not often under blacklights) but when I saw it last a month or so ago it looked just the same. :)

that is awesome. i have one on my left palm, and i've been thinking for a while about putting one on the back of my hand, but it's hard to stay in disguise with ink there. but THIS . . . excellent idea. and good job, too!

Could you please tell me exactly what ink you used on this? It'd be greatly appreciated.

Hey sorry it took so long to get back to you, I don't really check on here all that often anymore.

The ink is called Crazy Chameleon Ink and its the titanium white version so that it doesn't appear on the skin in normal light, well, at least on really pasty people like me. :P

Wow, this truly is an awesome blacklight tat. I've seen many of them, but none truly this good. If you lived in Indiana, I would go to you right now to get this tattoo.
