Glow In The Dark Tattoos
Very popular among ravers , these tattoos stand out strikingly well at popular social gatherings such as nightclubs and concerts.
Glow in the dark tattoos usually contain bright, fluorescent colors that are invisible in daylight. This tattooing technique is relatively new and became popular in the 90’s, along with the neon trend.
To create these tattoos, artists will use an ink solution containing phosphorus, in addition to the vegetable, metal, or plastic-based pigments used in traditional tattoos.
For those of you who may not know, phosphorus is the substance used in glow sticks, so before you get distracted by the beauty of this type of tattoo, it is important to consider the safety aspects of the procedure.
Well, to be frank, phosphorus is a highly toxic chemical element, known to our ancestors as ‘the devil’s element’, due to its use in friction matches, explosives, poisons, and pesticides. Source: Authority Tattoo
