UV Tattoos

Posted: Updated:

Tattoos used to be the calling card of sailors, criminals and pirates, now diminutive, pop boy Justin Bieber has more than 10 of them. 'Nuff said turns out, there's some new trends in the tattoo world. Being Deco's resident ink queen, I decided to check out the latest in skin art.

Whether it's your favorite superhero or a tribal, metallic thingie. Anything can be turned into a tattoo. Now, tattoos are being seen in a whole new light.

Amor Sierra: "UV tattoo is a tattoo that used with UV ink, which is an ink that under a black light will stand out."

UV tattoos are almost invisible in regular light, but once you hit the club...

Amor Sierra: "But once you come into a nightclub, the blacklight's out there then they're walking around and just kind of glowing. It's another way to get a tattoo on your bod that means something to you that not everybody has to see."

Being a human glowstick not your thing? White ink tattoos let you show your art in a low key way.

Amor Sierra: "White ink tattoos what we normally use the white ink is at the end of the tattoo just to do some highlights. The white ink tends to fade over time. I've had other tats done, colors and regular ink so I wanted to do something different go with white ink see how it stands out on my skin."

Ready for something more than skin deep? A microdermal piercing let's you add some bling to your ink.

Amor Sierra: "It's a surface piercing so you don't need to go through the skin. We are seeing more people adding it as an addition or an access to a tattoo.

If you're ready to give the Birdman a run for his money, you can bling out the skin you're in.

    I'll never forget the first time I met Jordana Green. She was beautiful and not just on the outside. She was standing across the newsroom with a big smile on her face. The first word that popped into my mind was "gamine."

    Okay, ladies...it's time to blow the whistle and cry "foul" on your high-heel sneaker wedges; even your throwback Chuck Taylor's need a time-out, too.

    Even though Donna Karan's eyes were bright and clear, they were aggressively smudged with dark black eye-liner: a signature look she's worn for years. Unfortunately, the make-up prevented me from getting a good read on her. At least, from across the room, where I was inconveniently standing.Donna was in town to promote her shop-in-shop (pictured in the blog) at Saks Fifth Avenue in Bal Harbour.

    Easter's almost here, that special time when kids bounce off the walls thanks to a candy-induced sugar high. Why let the little ones have all the fun? You can catch a holiday buzz at some Soflo watering holes with specialty drinks that are putting a brand-new spin on the words, "Easter eggs."
