White Tattoos are being requested by tattoo enthusiasts, including enthusiasts who might not otherwise want to get a tattoo, if it weren’t for the subtle beauty of white ink. Tattoos have been considered tattoo, or different, for decades. Even though they are more mainstream than ever, they are still outside of the norm. Not everyone is bold enough to want a tattoo that stands out in black in or bright colors. However, white ink creates a completely different tattoo effect, a more quiet, understated effect, that still allows the wearer to stand out of the crowd and be expressive on his or her skin. Ornate floral designs, mandalas, geometric patterns, script, and other subjects are chosen to be created in white ink. Not only does the white ink look lovely on the skin of the wearer as a normal tattoo, but also stands out more than normal ink tattoos in places where there are UV lights.
Are you thinking about getting a white ink tattoo? Make sure to do your research and choose a tattoo artist who works in white ink and has experience creating them. Because it is so light, it is almost like working in reverse. Need some ideas? Here are some absolutely stunning white tattoo examples:
