Using a UV Tattoo Machine Light for UV Blacklight Tattoos

April 18th, 2013 by David

UV blacklight tattoos are getting popular now and not every artist is setup to do them properly.  Using a UV tattoo machine light for these kinds of work will be highly beneficial and a cheap alternative to fixing up an area with big blacklights in a dim setting.

Traditionally, if you were to do one of these kinds of pieces, you would need a decent size ultraviolet light system and a dimmed room to be able to see the ink when it goes in.  With a machine light, you are focusing only on the area you are working on rather than the whole room.  This way, all you need is a slightly dimmed regular light source and let the focus of the UV machine light show where you are laying the ink.
