75 Striking White Ink Tattoos That Are Sure to Stand Out

If you are looking for a fun new tattoo idea, then try out the white ink tattoos because they are absolutely extraordinary! There is just something so wonderful about them because they brighten up your skin and the design just pops, not to mention you can get any tattoo you want done in white ink.

These tattoo ideas are growing in popularity because many people just love the idea of them and the unique look behind them. To be bold about it, white ink tattoos are completed by using thickened white ink.  These are very different from traditional tattoos which might be just what you’re looking for. These tattoos are fun because they will also glow in the dark if you are ever around a black light. How it’s going to look will depend on your skin tone, the darker the skin, the more the white will pop, but people with pale skin will still get these tattoos because they look cool either way. White ink tattoos can give off the look of having a scar or even having a tattoo that is embossed. Very cool indeed!

It’s is important to remember that a tattoo as unique as a white ink tattoo should be done by an experienced tattoo artist to ensure that no mistakes are made. If you want something different, you won’t find any tattoo more different than the white ink tattoo and your design options are endless.

Before you decide to get a white ink tattoo, I would advise you to find an artist that is experienced with doing white ink tattoos. The last thing you want is for a mistake to be made and then you are left with a tattoo that you don’t like. White ink is a lot thicker than traditional ink, and the tattoo requires more attention.


A white ink tattoo is a truly inspiring and unique idea, and it’s growing in popularity. There is only white; there are no other pigments used in the white ink tattoo. The ink is injected under the layer of skin to give it a unique look that it has. You must take great care in your white ink tattoo as it can fade easily if it’s not cared for. Make sure you use sunscreen when out in the sun or extreme fading will occur. One ink that is special to this design idea is the UV tattoo. These are the ones that will show up under black light allowing you to glow in the dark. The artist usually uses stencils when creating white ink tattoos. There is a lot more effort involved as well because the artist has to go over it a few times to make sure that it is absorbed into the skin.

After Care

You have to be prepared to take care of your white ink tattoo as it requires more aftercare than a traditional design. They need more time to heal, so they need to be cared for properly.

When it comes to sunlight, these tattoos can fade easily so again sunscreen would be a great idea if you happen to be in the sun a lot. You should also use anesthetic gel afterward to make sure it’s healing properly and don’t use and cosmetics on the area. Always listen to what the tattoo artist tells you about aftercare because they are the experts.
