According to Mail Online the latest Hollywood craze is white tattoos. Purely white tattoos, that is, with no other color at all.
But white-ink tattoos have become an overnight success with a host of celebrity followers from supermodel Kate Moss to actress Lindsay Lohan.
The permanent designs are applied with a regular tattoo gun, yet use ink that is thicker and of a higher quality than normal to stand out on the skin.
I'm kinda on the fence about this. On the one hand, anyone who has ever had any white highlights on a tattoo knows that it will fade. No matter how little sun you get the white will eventually fade away leaving bare skin color underneath. So, in that sense getting a purely white tattoo seems like a waste of time, money, expertise and, not to mention, pain.
On the other hand, getting a purely white tattoo would be almost like getting a temporary tattoo in case the image/writing loses its appeal. So, I guess, if you've got the money to spend on a tattoo that won't last but a few years then it might seem like a good idea.
That said, you won't catch me spending precious tattoo funds on a white tattoo. How about you? I'd be interested to learn how others feel about white tattoos.
