The art of tattooing has very ancient roots, because drawings on the skin of some peoples are an important tradition. In the modern world, tattoos are often used as decoration. The drawing can be applied in different colors, but it is white tattoos that are considered very original. And although such "decorations" appeared relatively recently, they are already very popular.
Why are white tattoos so popular?
The popularity of white tattoos can be explained by many reasons. For example, ordinary drawings that are applied in blue or black ink may look too bright and even defiant. At the same time, white tattoos are not so noticeable on the skin, so they are perceived as something stylish, but by no means vulgar.
There is another reason. When you enter the usual black ink in the inner layers of the skin around the pigment, a kind of capsule is formed that does not transmit ultraviolet rays. And if you look at such a pattern from the side, then the tattoo, and sometimes all the surrounding areas of the skin, acquire a characteristic blueshade. But white tattoos are completely devoid of such a drawback - they look light and bright from any angle.
And, of course, white tattoos today are something new, fashionable and original. They are suitable for decorating both female and male bodies.
Tattoos are white: how are they made?
In fact, the drawing technique remains the same - a special white pigment is injected under the skin with a needle. Only the white paint of the master, as a rule, is injected into deeper layers.
White tattoos look especially impressive on swarthy or tanned skin. But on the skin of a pale shade, the pattern can come out completely invisible. Therefore, before the procedure, be sure to talk to the master and ask how exactly the tattoo will look on your body and whether it makes sense to use white inks.
As for patterns, almost any pattern can be made with white ink. Girls often choose delicate flowers and whimsical patterns, while men prefer patterns with even and strict forms. Inscriptions made in elaborate fonts are especially popular.
White tattoo can be applied to almost any part of the body. Especially often clients prefer designs on the shoulder, collarbone, back of the neck, chest, back, calves and thighs. In addition, black and white tattoos are popular. After all, the white color becomes brighter and more expressive, and the black part of the picture acquires clear contours.
Whitetattoos: what you need to know?
For starters, it is worth mentioning that the skin regeneration period lasts a little longer than with a traditional tattoo. After all, as already mentioned, the pigment is injected into the deeper layers of the skin.
A very significant disadvantage of white tattoos is their fragility. The fact is that over time they turn yellow and lose their contour. After all, the color of the pigment gradually overlaps with the natural skin tone. Therefore, the drawing needs to be refreshed from time to time. Ask the artist how often the tattoo will need to be corrected.
