One of the most common search terms used to find my site is “white ink tattoo“. According to Google Analytics, 301 people have found my site by searching for some variation of this phrase in the past 30 days, with a real peak beginning around the first of September.
These searches are landing them on the page where I show off my white forearm tattoos, one day old at the time the post was written. I’ve recently had few people ask me how they’ve held up over the three years since, so here’s a picture, taken over the weekend.
Look closely, they’re pretty subtle. The ink is holding up pretty well — I have white ink on two other pieces so I know my skin can hold it fairly well, some people can’t — but the color is not as uniform as I would like. I had them gone over three times and some scarring has resulted, so I don’t think there’s much I can do about the color now. I’ve seen better white work but I’m still pretty happy with these.
