This is an awesome UV-reactive tattoo of the lower arm bones!
Black light tattoos use a UV-reactive tattoo ink that can be seen under a black light but are invisible or only partially visible in normal light.

I thought I’d make a photoset of some neat sciencey tattoos. In particular, the first is one I’ve never seen before and good god is it gorgeous.
bubble chamber tattoos are awesome <3
I’m thinking about getting inputs tattooed on the back of my neck, but can’t decide if i should go with the ones Major Kusanagi has in the original graphic novel (see last post) or the new ones from the animated show/films. Whatdyathink
These are the closest to the ones from the film i could find
Been thinking about this for a little over a year - usually that’s way more than enough time to think about it - keep comin’ pretty close but it’s nice being able to hide em, with neck’d be a lot harder.

Message from the Tattoo Artist TerraTag, “I was contacted a while ago from Matt George, from Perth, Australia, saying that he was going to get a tatto done of the Laughing Man logo. I designed the logo way back in 2001 for the anime series Stand Alone Complex. It is great to think that it still has influence even after all these years.
Matt is otherwise known as Musician/DJ?Producer – Proximity Effect.” [Source: TerraTag]

Maurilio Duarte Nunes Augusto says this about his tattoo: ”There is nothing like mark your own body with something that means A LOT to you, and makes you remember for all your life why you’d become who you are. AKIRA was the manga which opened my eyes to my passion and made want do draw more than ever. So, I asked to , my former but eternal student, to mark definitely my body with this design, made by myself. Crazy? I’ve seen worst tattoos before, and it makes complete sense TO ME. I’ll never regret it, it’s part of my life, of my soul and now, it’s part of my body as well. The memory of AKIRA will live in our hearts forever.” [Source: mauriliodna.deviantart.com]
