These days it’s hard to swing a dead cat around a room without hitting someone with a beautiful sleeve, forearm or leg tattoo. True, it is possible to use a tattoo for its obvious purpose as something you look at, but what if you didn’t? It would totally re-contextualize your tattoo.
UV tats are sooo mainstream.
Sure, black-light tattoos exist, but you can still see them, and besides, I think that particular train of thought can be taken even further. For example, you could get a tattoo in your armpit that people could only see if you shaved it. Or maybe you could get a tattoo on the bottom of your foot. Another great idea would be a tattoo in clear ink. At first this seems pointless, but you could claim the tattoo was of anything the situation required. It would also be perfect for someone who enjoys the experience of getting a tattoo but worries about the permanence of the imagery. A tattoo exactly drawn over another tattoo would be a great way to have two tattoos but economize by saving space. So be a pioneer in the semiotic landscape of tattoos: Get a redundant or even invisible one.
