The art of tattooing has come along way and now even more stunning designs are being created. One amazing tattoo trend is UV or black light tattoos. These tattoos are created with dye that is visible under an ultraviolet light. You can get tattoos that are visible both in and out of light but the design will glow under UV, or you can choose a tattoo that looks almost invisible until it is placed under the light. This is such a modern and cool way to make your tattoos stand out from the crowd. We love this illuminating tattoo style and think that you will too and to show you how awesome it is, we have found 23 UV tattoo ideas. There are butterflies, designs inspired by movies and more. If you didn’t love the glowing tattoos before, you will after this!
