Do you like tattoos, but you don’t dare with a very daring design? White tattoos are the best solution as they look very stylish on your skin but are not as visible as black or colored ink tattoos.  we tell you everything you need to know about these curious tattoos that are sweeping social networks.

White tattoos have become a real claim, thanks to their delicacy and how beautiful they look on all skin types . They have the advantage of being much more discreet than the rest of the tattoos , being ideal for those who, due to work issues, cannot capture a very attractive design on their skin. If you want to get a tattoo in a visible area, you will have the advantage that many people will not notice that you have it. Naturalness is an effect that many people who want to get tattooed look for and that is only achieved with very fine designs or made with white ink, since when it heals it acquires a texture that closely resembles that of your skin without any pigment.

One of the greatest curiosities of this type of tattoo is that the ink is more visible under ultraviolet light than is found in many restaurants and entertainment venues. If you want to achieve a fantasy effect, white ink is ideal for it: think of designs such as stars, moons or delicate illustrations that accompany the effect, such as mandalas.

Risks of white tattoos

Despite their aesthetics, white ink tattoos do have their drawbacks. The main problem that we find is that they are much more delicate than those with darker inks: if you do not take good care of it, it is very likely that it will be erased or result in unattractive colors.

White ink is much more difficult to work with than the rest of the inks and requires a very specific technique, which is why it is essential that you do it with a professional who already has experience in this field. Check with him if it is feasible for your skin type, since in the most sensitive skin it can cause itching or allergies .

white tattoo care

Post-tattoo care is essential for proper healing, but is much more important when you’ve gotten a white tattoo . If you want your tattoo to last and not lose the shape of the original design, don’t hesitate to take care of it with the right products from day one. Although the person who can best advise you on the perfect creams is your tattoo artist , we give you some options that you can find in our Shopping and Leisure Centre.
