If you want a tattoo but aren’t so sure about all the attention dark or colored ink brings, white ink tats might be for you. They look more like scars than tattoos because the process of getting them is different. The ink itself is another kind than what's used for color shading. It’s a little harder for your body to absorb, so more than one session could be needed to finish your piece. A lot of extra care is required to make sure white ink looks as good as possible, but the outcome is absolutely gorgeous. Talk to a tattoo artist about whether or not this style is an option you should consider. White ink won’t show up on just any skin color, and planning out the placement is another key to getting it done correctly. Even if you don’t do it on yourself, the results white ink creates are too beautiful to ignore. Check some of these out and decide if you should call your tattoo artist today!
