Though many people think that this is a new method, corneal tattooing has been in practice for over more than 2,000 years. It first came into being to correct defects such as corneal scarring and leucomas. It has become less frequent these days as many people use contact lens due to its effectiveness. This procedure should not be casually attempted or tried at home.
3. Tongue Tattoo

Permanent tiny tooth etchings can cost about $75.00 and for more complicated designs like Mickey Mouse, bowling balls, spiders, eagles etc, the tattoo can costs even more than $200.00. Pricey deal!
5. Fluorescent Tattoo
This tattoo is a unique one which glows under black light. Hence, it is referred to as black light ink. In case the entire tattoo is made up of UV ink (fluorescent ink), you will be able to see it only in the dark. Sometimes, the ink is used only in some parts of a big tattoo to make it sparkle. This ink is considered as the safest as it does not contain phosphors, it is not radio active, it does not lead to cancer and it does not contain EverGlow. This tattoo is the right one to trip out your friends in the dark!
6. Tattoo on Animals
You all must be familiar with the name Wim Delvoye, the person who has been tattooing pigs for about 20 years. A project called tattooed pigs was set up in the 21st Century in Chinaâs Art Farm as there are fewer strictures in this country regarding animal welfare than in other countries. Wimâs colleague, Danny Devos, worked for many months in the farm reorganizing and building. The tattoos come in different forms like flags which are traditional, lions and other such stuff. When the pigs die, their skin is removed and displayed on walls in different art venues.
A peculiar body enhancement experiment was first carried out on a cat named Mickey which is a Canadian Hairless breed. It was tattooed with a Tutankhamun design on its chest. The delighted female owner said that she had always wanted something new and different in her time and finally it had been done. The cat had been anaesthetized for three hours for this tattoo. Now, these tattoos are in rage as the proud owners of the animals are ready to get it on their pets.
7. Inside Lip Tattoo
This tattoo might be the one drawn on the weirdest place, i.e., the inner lip. These lip tattoos are generally found on the inside of the bottom lip, but sometimes it is seen on the inside of the upper lip as well. This tattoo is quite unique and odd and people get it done in a fairly hidden area. The tattoo is no more than a word or a phrase. The tattoo on your lips is less painful compared to the other parts of your body. You should rinse your mouth before getting this tattoo and no food should be consumed after getting this tattoo for a prescribed number of hours. Two disadvantages of this tattoo are that they fade quickly and you will have to redo it for an expensive rate. This might be the only tattoo that does not contain any art.
8. Accessories Tattoo
All this time you used to just buy sunglasses, but, have you ever tattooed them? Well, you really can do it. A man named Matthew had a pair of sun glasses tattooed on his face and posted his video on the net. The video features a 1 minute 30 sec clip showing a man sitting in a chair with a pair of sunglasses tattooed on his face. Some viewers have reported that the stunt was a hoax while some believe it. Although, not many gets such a thing done, but accessory tattoo is one of the craziest tattoo in our list!
9. Hair Tattoo
Hair loss is a common problem in all men and many of them opt for hair transplants to cover the balding patch. As these hair transplants are quite expensive, there is a permanent and cheaper alternative to this as well, i.e., the hair tattoo. It pains of course, but only for a few hours. Invented by Ian Watson, these tattoo can only be done on those who are bald and if you have hair, then we are sorry to inform you that this ain’t your type! Youâll have to shave or cut your hair to blend this tattoo, if only you want to eagerly have this one on your head rather than your real hair.
10. Nail tattoos
French manicures and nail decals are rapidly being replaced by nail tattoos. This involves getting the image of your choice tattooed on your nails. You can opt for just one nail or all of them to get tattooed. The tattoos on the nails, unlike those on the skin, are not permanent. It is not a costly process and is completed in a short time. This trend is quite common in teenage girls now a days. Nail tattooing does not penetrate in the skin and hence, there is no pain. Therefore, it is ideal for people who are rather nervous about the process of tattooing.
