White ink tattoo

Although it was not a common practice in the past, you may find more and more people are getting white ink tattoos. It looks weird and not noticeable, the white ink tattoo is loved by people who love subtle details and don’t like their tattoos remarkable to others.

White ink tattoos use only white ink, no additional pigments. The ink is injected under the layer of skin, which is only noticeable against the skin pigmentation. It could fade overtime, particularly if exposed to sunlight. So proper healing is critical to reduce the tendency of fading out. The more pale your skin the more the ink will show up. So the white ink tattoo may not be a good choice for darker skins.

One special type of white ink tattoo is called UV glowing tattoo, also known as blacklight tattoos, which is made with a special ink that is visible under ultraviolet (UV) light or blacklight. UV tattoo could be nearly invisible under non-UV light. It’s a popular choice for people who works in KTV or night club where UV light is available.

Tattoo ink is generally permanent while white ink fades overtime. White tattoo ink is normally metal based pigment, such as lead, zinc, titanium. Glow in the dark ink and blacklight ink are used for UV glowing tattoos. The ingredients in some “glow” inks are disclosed as: (PMMA) Polymethylmethacrylate and microspheres of fluorescent dye suspended in UV sterilized, distilled water. Phosphorescent ink does not re-emit the visible light it absorbs immediately but re-emitted it very slowly. Some phosphorescence phosphors glow for a few minutes, while other may glow for days. However, there are questions about the safety and health to inject this type of ink in the skin. It is believed that this type of ink contains radioactive material.
