It’s true that blacklights aren’t as easy to come by as they were in say the 90’s (thankfully). But you still can find them at clubs, bars, and your bowling alley if you’re there on the right night. I’m in my early 30’s which gave me the pleasure of living through the height of the blacklight craze and I can tell you that you never notice the lights, only the effects it has on white clothing or items specially made with UV inks that explode with neon colors when exposed to the ultraviolet rays of a blacklight.
Blacklight, or UV tattoos have been around for a while but I haven’t come across any quite as beautiful as Tukoi Oya’s delicate designs. Tukoi proves that UV tattoos can be tasteful and subtle, with the UV ink hidden in places you would never assume.
