White color hasn’t been very popular in the tattoo world since around 2012. It gain its popularity after a couple of celebrities got white tattoos. White ink is beautiful if it’s done by a professional. But there are other things you should know before getting one.
Although white tattoos look really amazing, there are some disadvantages. First of all, not every skin is suitable for them. For example, if your skin is very pale, a white tattoo may look terrible. Another thing is that white tattoos can lose their color over time. Unfortunately, there’s no way of telling how your tattoo will look after 10 years. It depends on the technique, equipment, quality of the paint, and the skills of a tattooist. So, it’s crucial to choose a professional tattoo artist. And the same rule applies to every other tattoo you are going to get.
Before getting a tattoo, look at your tattooist’s works. See if he or she has done white tattoos before. How do they look? Make sure you are not their first customer to have a white tattoo.
Another thing about white tattoos is that they don’t have clear lines. As we have already mentioned, they tend to fade over time, so it’s very important to choose the right design. Don’t go with very small or large objects, because they will not look good after some time. Choose something in the middle. Make sure there aren’t many details because you will probably need to go to your tattooist after some time to make your white ink more clear.
Finally, take your time to find a good design. Remember, this is going to be on your skin for the rest of your life. So it would be wise to pick an idea you really like. Take a look at our collection below. We believe you’ll find a perfect white tattoo idea. Good luck!
