    More and more people look for some original ways of body decoration. One of them is tattoos gleaming in the darkness.

    Ultraviolet patterns are made in exactly the same way as the standard ones. Instead of regular ink, a thicker and fluorescent ones are applied, though. That is why they look nothing special at day, but at night or whenever UV illuminated they become true glowing masterpieces!

    UV tattoos are an interesting option for those who can’t show their tattoos at work but would like to ‘unveil’ them while partying. Although the making process is slightly longer, the tattoo heals almost just as quickly.

    BONUS INFO

    Maxim Sipakov is a 19-year-old master of animation from Russia. He uses his talent to transform tattoos into patterns glowing with a range of colors like street neon signs.

    Looking at his animations one might think that this is a sci-fi movie studio. Monsters watch you with their green eyes, bats move their black wings and frogs follow you with third red-beaming light. This young Russian is really imaginative!
