White ink over blackwork tattoos is a trend that reworks a boring old tattoo. Adding white ink creates dimension and a completely new look over black ink that’s fading and turning slate gray. Tattoo artists now consider this a new challenge they can work with. If you’re bold enough, you will have to endure getting a blackwork tattoo. Then, after it heals, your artist will go over it with white ink to complete the trendy new look. Whether you want to cover an old tattoo or you just want to try this new tattoo trend, think long and hard before you decide to have one permanently inked.
