There's no denying the popularity of tattoos. It sometimes seems to be difficult to find someone who doesn't have one. But alongside their inherent charm, they do come with a few caveats. Many tattoos are pretty out there and hard to ignore. And while there's a time and a place for a full sleeve or something large and eye-catching, they may not be the most suitable for all occasions. In a more formal, or even a professional context, it may be better to go for something more subtle.
Well, now, tattoo artists have come up with an answer. Using white ink, rather than the traditional dark colors, gives a barely-there tatted effect that's truly stunning. People have been sharing images on Instagram, and we have to say, we're totally blown away.
