I was looking around, and saw someone mention a blue scorpion species, so I looked it up, and got pictures of tattoos scorps under uv light, and a few boats and a green scorp. I did find this though

Rhopalurus junceus is sometimes referred to as "cuban blue" scorpion.

The Cubans call them "alacran azul" (blue scorpion)

I've also seen different Heterometrus being referred as "Asian Giant Blue Scorpion".

But the scorpion in the pictures is not any of them. Looks more like a Parabuthus spp.

Definitely taken partially under a blacklight and probably edited with some program.

I accomplished something similar with my C. gracilis:
