Watch these fluorescent tattoos sparkle under UV light

Cool. I wonder how toxic the ink is…

Could the FDA get around to regulating tattoo ink one of these days, plz?

Also, Melbourne, Florida, or Melbourne, Australia?

Ink toxicity is one thing although the UV inks are FDA approved for human use (my understanding is that no ink is approved for actual tattooing hopefully someone will correct me). True glow in the dark tattoos that do not require UV ink contain phosphorous which is not safe. I wonder about increased skin damage from sun exposure due to the UV inks. Looks cool through.

At 1:17 it says they’re made by mixing phosphorous into UV ink. Sounds kinda risky.
