Touch me.

I have a quick query. Is it possible to tattoo white ink over black ink after the black ink has healed for over a month? I am going to be touching up a cornish flag that I did on brothers arm a while ago, I left it with negative white space but I messed up a bit on the stars (his own design) and I think it will look better with the negative space being white. I have the skin candy white girl ink so it is good stuff.

Good boo.

white will not "cover" the black...if you do multiple sessions of white you can lighten the black and then use another color dark enough to cover it...but if you're looking to "erase" the black its not gonna happen.

Cool post Forgiven & nice work.
I had no idea you could lighten
it that much.....
We are all laying in the gutter but some of us are looking for spare change...

Thanks for the input guys. I have only just checked this thread out since my internet has been down since Friday, I done my brother today, I was going over 'solid' black just the odd bit to sharpen and fill in the stars. This was the first time that I had ever used white on someone, I was surprised (almost) at how long the white takes to show up after you have laid it down! I done one pass, let it settle for 15 minutes then had another look and the white came out loads! It looks loads better now, but I forgot to take a picture before he left so I'll catch him again when it has healed to show you guys in show and tell.

Awesome post Unicron and Andy.
Very awesome contribution Andy, thats cool man.
Very impressive for one session! Lightening it that much in one session without overworking isnt something I even knew could be done.
Your linework is great too man, love it

very nice cover up

I have used the lightening technique several times as well. At best you can hope for a light grey but it takes severl applications.

I think Lucky Diamond Rich is a good example here. He has been tattooed black over his old tattoos and then again with white. Hes the current guinness world record holder if you didnt know that.

id think youd just end up with an unrecognizable blob of black after a while with thoes inverted ones, wouldnt think itd age well

The dumber people think you are, the more surprised they're going to be when you kill them.
