It's just like any other colour really.... go to any good Melbourne tattoo artist and tell them you want a white tatt. Doubt you'll find anyone that "specialises in White ink".

Specialises was probably the wrong word - "has a lot of experience with..." would suffice. It's not the same as just asking them to use white. It's slightly different thicker ink and a bit of a different technique.

Yeah I know its different. Fair few colours require a different technique so I doubt any quality artist would have any trouble with it.

Could find an artist that does full white tatts more than most other artists I guess but it wouldn't make much of a difference if you saw them or a quality artist that doesn't do them that often. If they're worth their salt they'll know whats required and won't fuck it up.

*basing this on the chat I had to my artist when he was using white ink on me

I would never get anything like that either.

Can appreciate the uniqueness and workmanship though. Takes a special artist to do that kind of piece.

I couldn't distinguish either. Maybe it's a mixture of the two?

Yes and no. Just be sure what your buying is of good quality. A few years a go my mum ordered me some bars for my lip and I ended up having some reaction to whatever they were coated with, it turned out they were from a country that had lower standards on the quality of the stuff you put in your mouth, so i'd say just make sure your ordering from an australian distributor or some other placed based in the western world. (I'm pretty sure the ones my mum bought me were from somewhere in south america)

Tattoo Machine and Ink technology has come a long way. Gives artists a lot more options these days.

I have massive respect for traditional Japanese tattoo. You see so many average Asian pieces these days from artists with no real understanding or appreciation for the style/culture. The detail of proper Asian Tebori work from Masters like Horimasa is incredible. e.g

japanese sleeves are the new barcodes from the 80s and celtic armbands from the 90s.

Yeah it's a little sad such a beautiful style has been raped like that

Still, put a quality piece next to an average piece and you'll see a big difference. It's an easy style to imitate poorly but incredibly difficult to do well.

Exactly, tattoos are meant to be very serious.

Did you know they are permanent?
