If you crave getting inked but don't have the balls to do it, or simply want to give your regular tattoo a twist, a black-light responsive tattoo might be the thing to consider. Otherwise called UV tattoos, they are only visible under black-light when they heal!

Be the brightest star in a night-club or that dude (or chick) at a rave party. Avoid getting looked down in that fancy office that you work at. Have a little secret. Still thinking? Bored Panda gathered a bunch of stunning examples of UV-tattoos that might pull the trigger for you. Have one already? Let us see it!
