5 things to know before getting a white tattooVika
White ink tattoos have become a new trend. Before getting such a tattoo, it is better to know some facts and be sure that they will fully meet your expectations in the future.
We are in awe of this delicate and elegant art, and we would like to share with you some of the things that can protect you from the frustrations of getting a white ink tattoo.
1. Go only to experienced artists.
Yes, this applies to all tattoos. But white ink is much more difficult to apply.
2. White tattoos don't look good on some skin tones.
This is a great option for people with lighter skin and you can easily hide them with makeup in certain situations. However, skin color is a determining factor in how visible your tattoo is. If your skin is too pale, chances are your body art won't be as impressive.
3. White tattoos require a special design.
White ink should complement your tattoo idea because not all designs can be done using this color. Moreover, the simpler the idea, the more likely it will look brilliant. Complex portraits are not a good idea for white ink. Feel free to ask your tattoo artist or even multiple artists for their opinion.
4. White tattoos don't usually stand the test of time.
All tattoos disappear and after a certain number of years, they do not look the same. And white ink tends to change its color faster than other inks as the tattoo ages. So there is a good chance that you will have to retouch your tattoo more often than if it was black.
5. White ink is better for accentuation.
Usually, white ink is used to make other tattoos stand out because it can help provide a more interesting shape. It also looks impressive in contrast to black ink. You can see examples above. As such, it makes sense to add this white ink to other designs.
