Cool white ink tattoos are becoming increasingly common. Despite their lack of popularity in the past, more people are now finding that the subtlety found in white ink tattoos serves as a preferable alternative to darker, more traditional designs.
As the name implies, white ink tattoos only use white ink. The process of creating the tattoo is different from traditional inking. The ink is administered under the skin and is only evident when seen against the skin’s pigment. To prevent fading, it is crucial to keep the tattoo away from sunlight. Paler skin pigments work great with white ink tattoos.
Some white ink tattoos are more noticeable than others. A UV tattoo is made with special ink that is distinguished under ultraviolet (UV) lights or black lights. These tattoos are almost unnoticeable under non-UV lights. White ink tattoos are popular with people who work in clubs that use UV lights.
