White ink tattoos are a great example of how body art is becoming more and more unique. These interesting tats are much different than your traditional tattoo. Even the most skilled tattoo artists have difficulty in keeping the ink purely white during the transfer to skin, and even if the process is completed successfully, the ink has a tendency to heal raised, yellowed, or transparent.
Women are especially drawn to this type of tattoo; there is a subtlety and privacy to the faint white lines that is provocatively delicate and feminine. Some sport a white ink tattoo to please employers or loved ones who frown upon visible, bold designs. Others do so to follow in the footsteps of fashionable celebrities like Lindsay Lohan, who had the word “breathe” tattooed in white ink on her right wrist after surviving a severe asthma attack.
