Subtle Tattoos

Personally, I'm not a big fan of tattoos especially on myself (although technically, I have tattoo restrictions) but I do understand that to most people, each piece of art on their bodies represents a part of their life.  Having something permanently penned to your own skin is a huge commitment and you don't want to be 60 and have to live with a garish ink art of a mistake you wish would just go away or had never happened.  Of course there's laser removal but that's said to be more painful than the initial tattoo.

Anyways, enough about personal preferences and thoughts, I stumbled upon this photo and felt this particular body art to be... beautiful.

It looks like skin but embossed.  From what I gather from the discussion they had going on on the page, they might have used white ink for this tatt.  I wonder how this would work on darker skin tones?  Or would they use a tinted version so it'll blend with the skin better?

  1. It's actually just white ink. I barely shows up on light skin, shows a bit better on tan skin and is white on dark skin. Unfortunately, after a while, white ink tends to turn a yellow-ish color. I still love them though. You just gotta get them retouched.
