White tattoos are the current must-have for Hollywood A-listers. Those who have taken the plunge to get a white tattoo include Kate Moss and Lindsay Lohan. The Shamrock Tattoo parlor in Los Angeles is their chosen venue to get the subtle ink designs, which are far less visible than traditional brightly-colored tattoos.

White tattoos are notoriously hard to heal. Although a regular tattoo gun is used for the process, the ink is thicker than normal to make it stand out on the skin without looking like scar tissue. This unusual tattoo color fades faster than other colors, and a person's skin tone has a dramatic impact on how the finished tattoo will come out.
