White Ink Tattoos

A very experianced tattoo artist that I know said that white ink is translucent, rather than opaque. That means that if you have brown skin it won’t bleach it white, but just lighten it. A perusal of Suicidegirls shows quite a few girls with gorgeous white ink as part of a tattoo. An all white tattoo, several years old, on a pale friend of mine, looks rather like a network of beautiful gothic scars. Which has it’s own appeal.

Sleeve Tattoos

A sleeve tattoo (or tattoo sleeve) is a large tattoo, or a collection of smaller tattoos, usually themed in similar manner, that covers most or all of a person’s arm, usually from shoulder to wrist.

The term “sleeve” is a reference to the tattoo’s size similarity in coverage to a long shirt sleeve on an article of clothing. In this manner, the term is also used as a verb; for example, “getting sleeved” means to have one’s entire arm tattooed. The term is also sometimes used in reference to a large leg tattoo that covers a person’s leg in a similar manner.
