Disadvantages of white tattoos

The main problem with white tattoos is that you can’t do it on all skin types. Therefore, if you have a pale and very white skin getting a white tattoo is not an option for you. Also, there are limitations of what you can do with white ink. For example, you won’t be able to get a very realistic or detailed tattoo because it will merge with the skin.

Also, you have probably heard that they may disappear quickly. Well, that’s not entirely true because it can happen with any other tattoo also. It depends on the type of the skin, the quality of the ink and the skills of the tattooist. However, all tattoos look good when they are fresh – the lines are more clear, the colors are more sharp and bold. That’s because the ink is in the first layer of the skin and the freshness stays for about a month. When a tattoo heals, the body removes the first layer. And so as white tattoos – eventually they fade and become more yellow.

Also, some people say that white tattoos cause them allergies and that anyone with skin allergy should avoid getting white ink. But, this information can be misleading so you should consult with your doctor if you may be allergic to white ink.

However, the white tattooing is improving a lot. Disposable nozzles, better tools that avoid mixing with the other colors allow for this style to be safer.
