Do white tattoos fade?

Answer

White tattoos fade and often more quickly than a black or colored tattoo. White tattoos are already less noticeable when placed on the skin, so when they fade, they become hardly recognizable.

White tattoos are done completely in white ink in order to be less visible and are thus a more private form of expression. They are typically just an outline of a design, word or phrase, with little to no shading. In order to be visible on the skin, the tattoo artist goes over the lines several times with the white ink. In some cases, the faded tattoo simply goes back to looking like a light scar on the skin, while in other cases, fading turns the white ink to a yellowish color.
