Completion and Closure. . .

Work on the completion of my back peice has **finally** commenced. As I've already got the outline done, I'm letting an apprentice tattooist, practice his skillz at 'filling' and not getting charged for the work. Thank you andrew_shows

Two hours worth of hand poke with a 7 point filler needle. I go back in a couple of days to work on another portion, then I will need to go into a shop and have the outline darkend, cleaned up, and the U.V. Outline put in.

it looks awesome thus far. I've seen UV inks advertised before. What are they made of, do you know?

The Stuff I'd like to use. . . Is Here

The main ingreedients:

The ingredients of Chameleon UV Tattoo Inks: (PMMA) Polymethylmethacrylate 97.5% and microspheres of fluorescent dye 2.5% suspended in UV sterilized, distilled water with no preservatives or other additives.

"The fluorescent dyes are totally NON-carcinogenic, it does NOT contain phosphors, it is NOT radio active, it does NOT glow in the dark.

According to our manufacturer's records, this ink received USFDA approval in 1995 for use in animals, plants and fish for the purpose of tracking migration, growth patterns; breeding habits etc. No other tattoo inks have received approval in this way. Many fisheries use this ink to "mark" the fish in oceans and the ones raised to stock rivers and ponds [the same ones we hunt and fish]."
