    Posted: October/18/2012 at 4:22am
I got a black light tattoo about a year ago and it has left a horrendous scar. Another tattoo artist told me this is not normal at all and that the artist that did the black light tattoo went too deep and possibly used a barbed needle.
Is this kind of scarring "normal" with black light tattoos?
Is it typical to have to go deeper with black light ink?
Is it typical to use a barbed needle for a black light tattoo?
What are barbed needles generally used for?

Side note: I got a new tattoo recently on my entire side (same as the black light tattoo) and the pain I experience was fractional of what I experienced with the black light tattoo, which leads me to believe the old artist may have went too deep.

You pretty much answered your own question :) Scarring usually occurs when a bad needle is used and/or the tattoo is done too deep.

Yes, but I was wondering if maybe black light ink is supposed to be deeper for some reason?
