There is a lot of gorgeous examples of white tattoos going around. While it might end up looking very elegant, beautiful and discreet, it can end up looking terrible if not done and handled right. It takes a whole different kind of talent to master the art of white tattoos. If you don’t get your white tattoo in the right place, you might experience some problems these people did.
1.Adding Another Colour To The Mix
Some tattoo artists might not get the idea when you ask them for a white tattoo. Make sure you talk to one that does otherwise you might end up with weird lines in your white tattoo like this one right here.
Some tattoo artists also think its a good idea to mix white ink with other colours in the composition. While it does look cool in some cases, red is definitely not the colour you want to be mixing with white. While white tattoos by themselves look elegant, mixing them with red looks scary as hell!
2. Application of the White Tattoo
Like we said, white tattoo making is an art form in itself. So to master it takes more than a tattoo gun and some white ink. Make sure to see other white tattoos the artist has made before so you know you’re not the practicing board.
3. Beware the Sensitive Skin
If you have very sensitive skin you might have to wait couple of months before you can actually see the tattoo rather than just irritation on your skin.
This might not be a huge problem if you have writing or a single drawing but patterns may seem like you have a disease.
4. Skin Type is Everything
While with other tattoos you don’t have to worry about skin colours or imperfections, with white tattoos your skin makes all the difference. Because it is such a settle change of colour in your skin, having anything else around will not make it pop.
5. Know That It Will Fade
Gracefully accept that your tattoo will one day be impossible to see. You can take care of it to have it last longer but know that it will be invisible. But think of it this way, instead of having a black smudge you get a mark that is barely visible.
Bonus: DO NOT GO TANNING!
You can if you want to but it will probably cost you a tattoo. White tattoos do not take sunlight as well as others.
