White ink tattoos do not follow the usual tattoo process of stenciling and outlining in black. Instead, the tattoo itself is completely done with white ink, leaving a ghostly image that looks quite different from a traditional tattoo. These tattoos can look like brands (or scarification), or they can appear to be very subtle. This can be a good alternative for someone who wants a tattoo but can’t have obvious body art in their work environment. The white ink used for tattoos is not the same ink you might have seen used for mixing shades in a color tat. Instead, it is a thicker, high quality white ink that is specially made to stand out on its own.
