White Ink Tattoos - Pros, Cons & Risks


We come across a lot of questions concerning style, size, place, meaning etc. on the way to the decision to make a tattoo. Most people do not think about the color of the tattoo, it’s just not necessary in most cases.

If the motive for the image is something from real life, for example, an animal or a flower, we transfer such an image to the skin, preserving natural colors. Someone choose a black and white version of the picture. The tattoo is done only with black paint, or many shades of gray are used in this case. But few people thought about white tattoos!

It is difficult to say how and when white tattoos appeared for the first time. It can be assumed that in Russia a white pigment began to be painted in the 90s. The skill of artist tattoos and the quality of materials has increased significantly since then and white tattoos are increasingly found on amateurs of tattoos artistic.

White tattoos are applied with a special pigment (dye) as you already understood. You can find several popular myths and legends about such tattoo on the Internet such as:

  1. One-color tattoos are less noticeable and do not attract attention
  2. Of course, this is not entirely true. A white tattoo will be harder to distinguish at first sight but it will not remain completely invisible. Externally, white tattoos are a bit like the result of scarring, it is another kind of decoration of the body. But in the case of a tattoo on the skin there is no scarring, and the surface remains smooth and even unlike the scars.

  3. White tattoos lose their shape and color very quickly
  4. There were certainly cases when white tattoos faded, the color turned dirty, eventually had to resort to correction and alteration in the nineties. As in the case of ultraviolet tattoos, everything depends on the quality of the pigment. In our time this problem remains far behind. Although once again we recommend you to carefully choose a master and salon which entrust your body!

The main feature of the white tattoo is that this shade is lighter than the natural color of the skin. That is why under the influence of external factors the color of the paint may seem slightly darker.

It is extremely important that no excess substances enter the paint during the procedure. Any admixture, for example, of the part of the rendition used by the master, can slightly grease the overall color.

In any case consult a master before deciding to make a white tattoo. He will tell you how this image will look on your body, and whether there are any grounds for concern.


Anything. You can see small geometric figures, stars, crosses most often, but sometimes quite a large complex picture. Tattoos with white paint for girls are variations of mehendi in the main. The girls choose a white pigment instead of temporary henna to be more original.

The nature of images of white tattoos often intersects with blackwork in general such as geometric images with black paint, which you can see by looking at the photo!
