You have seen tattoos in a variety of colors, ranging from red and blue to fine black outlined designs. But what happens when a tattoo is simply close to the color of the skin, or the design is shaded in white? Tattoos in a white theme express the transparent design of the lines. White Tattoos have a unique elegance, and come out brilliantly on fair skin.
The choice of design for the white tattoo depends on what is important for you, and how complex you want the pattern to be. Usually, the simple beauty of a white tattoo flowers best in a design that is flowy, with natural lines and flourishes. Small patterns such as a cross symbol, a heart and ornate motifs also have a graceful charm in a white tattoo design. The transparent effect adds a lot to the final three-dimensional feel of a white pattern. To do this, usually the shade of the lines is kept as close to the regular skin tone as possible. The design is drawn with simple outlines, without much filling in. The graceful play of the lines etched on the skin, makes the tattoo a standout. Here are some stunning design ideas for a white tattoo.
