Tattoo artist from Melbourne Tukoi Oya uses colored fluorescent ink to highlight individual areas of her tattoo drawings. Thanks to this, they can be seen in a completely different light... literally.

Ultraviolet, or fluorescent, tattoos are applied using a special pigment that is not visible in daylight and reveals all its beauty only in ultraviolet. With its help, you can both create a completely "invisible" secret tattoo, and complement an existing one, giving it an original look. This is exactly what the Australian artist is doing, whose tattoo salon in Melbourne is very popular thanks to this unusual technique.

Tuka Oya draws inspiration for creating her works from the theme of nature and space, and her various star-space tattoos are made in the form of naive drawings by hand.
