Like many new trends, white tattoos came to us from the United States. Popular models and actresses who dreamed of such body decoration could not afford to get a traditional tattoo that is visible from a distance. Hence the idea of decorating the body with white tattoos, which are not so obvious and look really impressive..
White tattoos – what is a white tattoo and how it differs from a traditional one?
White tattoos are made with a slightly higher density white ink than the color ink we know well from color tattoos. The different texture makes the white tattoos characteristically bulging. Some people mistake them for scarification scars..
According to some people who have gotten both colored and white tattoos, the pain gets worse when the white ink gets under the skin. White tattoos, while gaining in popularity, are still a big novelty. Therefore, if you are going to get such a tattoo, choose a professional tattoo parlor and an experienced tattoo artist. Of course, it is important for the tattoo artist to prepare the workplace with you – sterilize the instruments and put on disposable latex gloves to work.
White tattoos – pros and cons
The white tattoo is the most popular among people who have long dreamed of having at least one tattoo, but due to the nature of their work, they could not afford it. Some people got a small tattoo in an invisible place, but for some, this was not a satisfactory solution. It turned out that white ink tattoos are almost invisible from a distance, and make a great impression up close. In addition, there are still few people on the streets with such a tattoo, which is an important advantage for anyone who appreciates originality..
Unfortunately, white tattoos are not ideal. White ink has properties that are different from those known to all tattoo artists. Therefore, it is difficult to fully predict how white ink will behave under various factors. People with white tattoos are not advised to sunbathe intensely, as white ink often turns yellow and becomes even more prominent. This is why it is so important to choose a good and experienced tattoo artist who will not only get a professional white tattoo, but will also help you choose the pattern and the place where it will look best. In some cases, the tattoo artist may not recommend getting a white tattoo that will not look good on all skin types..
White tattoo – which design to choose?
Not every drawing can be done with white ink. The most popular motifs are symmetrical folk-style lace, flowers (such as a rose), butterflies, dream catchers, a bird feather, and short sentences or initials of decorative letters..
White tattoos are a trendy new interpretation of traditional tattoos.
