Jennie, that wasnt directed at you. Someone above you had said the skin condition. if anyone takes the time to look up white ink tattoos, youll see thats what it is. Not scarifications
I have a white tattoo on my wrist--I've had it for 3 years and its getting more visible as the years pass. I Love it!!!
It's not about the artist. People take ink differently; every body is different. My mom and I have matching tattoos, and I had to get mine touched up, and she didn't. skin reacts differently depending on the person.
with the white ink tattoos, when you tan does the white ink stand out more? all of my tattoos are black and white, the only colored one is on my back, so i can't tell lol
That's real nice
This is white ink, not scarification. If it were scarification it would be more raised off the skin, and stand out much more. Oh, and @Alie Oliver, no, tanning is bad for tattoos regardless of what their color is.
I have two tattoos, one black one full color. Oldest is 10 years old newest is 4 years old, neither show any sign of fading - the butterfly is as bright as the day I got it. The sun damage is what fades them, so long as you use extra sunscreen on the tattoos you will not have to retouch often (mine have never needed to be retouched).
This so truly beautiful. What a lovely piece of art!
I love this. I would love to have my son's name on my wrist in white ink. But I am curious....does the white ink stand out better on darker skinned people? I am fair skinned so I was afraid that you wouldn't be able to see it with my skin tone. There's no point in getting it if you can't see it. :(
Being pale, it won't show up on you as well, but it should still be noticeable. Us pale people aren't white regardless of popular belief lol. White isn't a skin color, everyone has different undertones in their skin color. The person in the picture is rather pale but has a yellowish undertone. My is pink, so it would be even more noticeable on me.
I want one! Just white ink?
beautiful!...i have a tatt in pink
I've had white ink tattoos for 8 years and they've never faded. It totally depends on your skin type though! They look amazon against tanned skin in the summer. Just make sure to use a high SPF sunscreen. Mine have never been touched up and look brand new!
Amazing* sorry my iPhone likes to change words!
I have a white ink tattoo on my wrist and I'm quite pale. I've had it for 4 years and it hasn't faded at all
this is indeed a tattoo. scarification leaves raised marks in the skin, and looks like a scar...as in, you've been cut open, and your skin healed on it's own. anyone who's had any surgery can tell you that. this is a tattoo, and a beautiful one at that.
Is there anyway to know beforehand if your skin will keep white ink or not?
This is very pretty body painting....
IT'S A WHITE INK TATTOO.
I luv this
I love it!
That's amazing ! Very beautiful !!!!
What's the use of going through the pain of getting a tattoo when you can't even see it? Useless if you ask me.
love white tatts - looks like a burn
I don't think it's a tattoo, I'm one of few who have a rare skin disorder called 'skin writing' & this looks like it. I could have my whole body drawn on, & it disappear after about an hour!
This one is a tattoo. The original source was when a girl posted it to her tumblr as her tattoo.
I've seen a couple questions on here about white tattoos that I haven't seen anyone answer.
I've got a tattoo with a good portion of white on my wrist. I keep it well moisturized indoors and sun screened outdoors. I'm very pale with a light yellow skintone. Its subtle, but it is visible. I think that's why she got this tattoo in white ink. She wanted something beautiful but that didn't distract from her natural beauty.
Anyway, after a week of having it, the white seemed to turn brown. I was worried it was infected or discoloring. I talked to my tattoo artist, and it was just part of the healing process. It was the blood and plasma trapped under the skin mixing with the white. My tattoo is about two years old and the parts that were colored white are as white as snow.
As far as pain and fading, it really depends on the artist. The first part of my tattoo hurt like hell. I was shaking the whole time. That artist really didn't care about trying to be careful and considerate. The black ink bubbled and faded in several places. The second tattoo artist to work on the piece was very considerate about my pain threshold and took the time to make sure the ink set well. It just felt like a cat scratch when he did my tattoo. I didn't feel any difference between him coloring the blue part of my tattoo and the white part. I haven't had any problems with fading with his portion of my tattoo.
@Cassandra Chatwin to add to what you said, it also depends on the artists personal layer technique. A tattoo pierces 3 to 5 layers of skin, and depending on how many layers the artists decides to tattoo, will effect fading.
^ agreed my hubby has a tattoo that has a white block but the artist didn't do white cuz of the after effect so he inked him with white but just shaded it with a graying color....it looks better that way in his case
When up close on this tat it looks very beautiful BUT when the pic gets smaller it looks like scars..... I just dont want someone to think my tat is scars..... idk... :/
Wow that's awesome
That's so not realistic
Was told by my tattoo artist that white ink can and some times will turn a yellowish color over time. He said it really depends on skin color of the individual. I have plenty of white used in shading on many of my tattoos and have had little to no fading. As for the piece in the picture, it very pretty but for me- if I'm going to sit through the pain and spend the money, I use different/more colors. But thats me.
That's cool. Beautiful...makes it look like you are made of lace!
I agree with Ashlee Vanwie when I first saw the pic I thought it was scars
so when you tan, will it show up more? That would be cool....
wow! This is totally soo wonderful;)
White ink tattoos work better on pale skin. I'm really pale an have a similar tattoo and it's very visible and white.
An unusual Tattoo. The barely there look.
I have two white ink tattoos and I love them but I'm pretty light/pale. I get people tell me they look like scars all the time from a far but they're amazed up close. Plus they're great and easily hid for the work place.
I love it!!:)
@Melanie Stephens....maybe this is the type of tattoo you should get!
That's so pretty
It's actually pretty
Wonder if there's a brown that could work for my complexion?
