White tattoos have been gaining in popularity over the last few years. Many celebrities have helped fuel this trend. Check out these stunning tattoo pics…
Believe it or not, white tattoos get a lot of bad press. Those who get them complain that white tattoos end up looking like a rash while others claim that they fade quickly. But, you should not let such stories stop you from getting something that you want.
One of the main reasons people get white tattoos is because they are more discrete than the black ink tattoos, and they have a fun scar look. If you want to achieve a scar look, or to adorn an already existing scar white tattoos are a great idea, and they are not as extreme as scarifications.
The truth is, any tattoo idea can turn out bad. It happens all the time, regardless whether the tattoos were done in white, black, or any other ink. The thing about white tattoos is that they are a bit more delicate than all the other types of tattoos. White tattoos depend on many factors, such as the skin, quality of the ink and the skill of the artist. To make sure your tattoo turns out the way it should, you have to choose an artist based on his portfolio, not the price range. And, the better the artist, the higher the price. The price should never make you choose a different, cheaper artist since that tattoo will stick forever. But, also, if the artist offers lower prices it doesn’t have to mean he does a worse job. Once again, the artist’s portfolio will reveal everything you need to know.

The delicate feather looks amazing and successfuly sends its symbolic message. A feather tattoo can stand for hope, freedom, purity, truth, or even free spirit.
