Some good things never last.

A white tattoo is considered to be the dainty choice by those who want to get inked but is scared of bold designs. It's a subtle way to wear body art because it can only be seen up close. You can have it done even if you work in a corporate setting (or in case your mom doesn't approve of tattoos).

It's pretty indeed, but there's a catch: It doesn't last that long. A white tattoo doesn't age well. It fades into your skin color within 15 days (depending on the area) up to a year. The end-result tends to look like an artfully drawn scar.

For it to be seen, a white tattoo's lines must be thick. Your artist must have excellent skills to get a precise outline and shape, otherwise it could look awful. The bottom line is: White ink is best used only for highlighting colored and black tattoos, and is not recommended by pros for the actual tattoo itself.
