11 Gorgeous & Delicate White Tattoo Designs

A white ink tattoo is almost like a secret -- it can be barely visible except in certain light. I love the sweet quality white tattoos possess. It's such a delicate and beautiful way to add to your skin. Here is a collection of some of the most beautiful white tattoos.

This light ink takes on an ethereal feel. And many of the designs chosen to be in white are dainty and spiritual. An all-white tattoo radiates this magical and exquisite feeling and after seeing this collection, you may want to get one, too.

Which tattoo is your favorite?

Sometimes tattoo artists add a little silver or pink to the white ink so it stands out on a person's skin tone. It's still super light and ghost-like, very subtle like these arrows.
