In modern history, the first time it happened the world was graced with the (British) Naval tattoo style which would later evolve into the American Traditional style. Then, over the course of 50-60 years, New School, Bio-mechanical, and Geometric tattoo styles evolved and became widely accepted and established tattoo styles. In the last few years several new styles have emerged–but are they destined to be added to the canon of accepted tattoo styles, or will they be discarded as tattoo fads?

Have your artist start with a small spot that isn’t highly visible and then wait a week to see if anything happens. Similar to the problem with white ink tattoos, blacklight and UV ink tattoos will be visible, but won’t look like a tattoo. With a regular tattoo there is some slight scarring, but it isn’t very visible because the ink is opaque and camouflages the scars. What we can tell you is that with the current technology and materials, these tattoo styles will leave you with an inferior product.
