well, at least the white UV tattoo ink is. it was huge with rave kids who spend a lot of time in UV light, but it turned out to be cancerous (i dont think anyone was surprised about that, ever) so its illegal. i dont know about the white ink they use these days though, this was back in the 90s

Even the most skilled tattoo artists have difficulty in keeping the ink purely white during the transfer to skin, and even if the process is completed successfully, the ink has a tendency to heal raised, yellowed, or transparent. Despite the risks, countless people are dishing out big bucks to model this cutting edge fashion.

Women are especially drawn to this type of tattoo; there is a subtlety and privacy to the faint white lines that is provocatively delicate and feminine. Some sport a white ink tattoo to please employers or loved ones who frown upon visible, bold designs. Others do so to follow in the footsteps of fashionable celebrities like Lindsay Lohan, who had the word “breathe” tattooed in white ink on her right wrist after surviving a severe asthma attack.

Errors in Tattooing Process
No matter the recent popularity of such tattoos, there are risks in obtaining all-white designs. Even the most experienced tattooists hesitate to give white ink designs because of the difficulty of the process. The three most common techniques—stencil, bloodline, and freehand—all have their downfalls.

Traditionally, a stencil of purple dye is applied to the skin before the tattooist begins inking. However, if this method is used, the artist risks mixing the white ink with the dark stencil ink, which gives the tattoo a permanent grey tint.

Another option is to use a bloodline, a process by which the tattooist uses a water-filled needle to draw blood in an outline of the design. This process is risky because the tattoo receiver’s blood may mix with the white ink, tainting the tattoo pink.

Most artists admit that the safest way to do a white tattoo is freehand, without use of any type of stencil or guideline. The problem with this process lies in the color of the ink—white ink is so light that it is difficult for artists to see where they are injecting the pigment.

Scared.. my mate is adding white ink to my sleeve. Surely aint that bad.
i want only white ink.. no other colour. most tattoo artists don't like doing only white because mistakes can easily be made.
