The main difference of white ink tattoo is that white pigment is used when applying a tattoo. Despite of the fact, that many people still like original black, classic or vivid tattoos, some people, especially those, who do not want to attract a lot of attention to vivid and picturesque ornaments on their skin and to themselves, prefer to use white ink tattoos.
White ink tattoos, as a new trend in the tattoo world, is currently widespread all over the world and quickly became very popular, as a popular song. They are the most popular among people living in big cities of the United States.

As for white ink tattoo design itself, that is applied to the chosen body part – usually small pictures, inscriptions can be used, and sometimes both. But there is some peculiarity – in case a person decides to apply a white ink tattoo the tattoos with sharp edges are used. Sharp edges do not allow tattoo to be not distinctive on the skin. Sharp white ornaments and inscriptions look very good. For the white ink tattoo design containing some inscription it is very important to choose suitable font and line thickness for the white ink tattoo to remain distinctive for a long time.

That’s why if your skin is very pale there’s a big chance that your tattoo will not nave needed contrast and will be hardly visible. In this case white ink tattoo designs are not very useful. It may be better for you to use some more vivid and lively tattoo color. Mind that light yellow, pink and blue colors are very popular as well.
The main advantage of the white tattoo is that it is not striking and can remain relatively unnoticed that is why it became popular who didn’t want to show off their tattoos.

According to this it is necessary to know and to understand how your white ink tattoo will look like after several years. Usually you can discuss it with any tattoo artist who knows how to do white tattoo ink.
