    ... without an outline?

    I want to get a tattoo of a lightning-bolt on my arm (bicep) and do not fancy the idea of a black outline. So my idea is either no outline, or an outline but not in black. Ive seen white ink tattoos which might be a good idea as an outline, with maybe graduated yellow-silvery blue in the bolt itself? Is it possible? How do you think it would look?

    Not alot of help but I have a heart above Mia's name on my hand without the outline.

    I think white outline would be better than non at all, because the outline acts as a barrier if that makes sense? Stops the ink running through the skin making the tattoo look fatter! lol x

    That's not true, you don't need a outline. Artists have them there as a guide. You dint need a outline if you don't want one

    Thanks! I know the outline might not be needed, but since the design is going to be pale in colour I wanted some sort of edge to it, but not too much as I dont want it too prominant as its going to be a good few inches long. So was thinking white to sharpen the edges up. :shrug:

    I'd discuss it with the tatoo artist you want it done with in advance and see if they have any ideas to add, they will know what works well :flower:

    that would be AWESOME! OH is not keen on UV ink being used, but that would be amazing! (not that I go out enough to show it off, especially not where there are the right lights to show it up :dohh:) Thanks for the suggestion!
