Default White ink longevity?

Hi guys,

I had my fourth sitting with jo harrison on wednesday and have had some white highlights put in my tattoo. Ive been hearing recently that over the long term white ink can turn yellow? Is it true or does it depend on your skin type?

Ive done a search and cant find any care advise for this. So any ideas on how to prevent it?

At the moment its completely covered with clothing whilst its healing and after healing I use vitamin E cream on it and Factor 40 sunblock when its uncovered. Is that a high enough factor? Any other ideas?

cheers

The white highlights in mine still went slightly yellow while I was on holiday, even tho I was applying kids factor 60 at least once an hour).
I suppose it depends on your skin?

I wouldnt say "yellow" but more manilla folder color...your skin pigment is stronger then the pigment of white ink.Although i have seen tattoo with white that have stayed white being the person never tanned or even exposed it ever...but i cant wear jeans when its 40 degrees C outside...like some folks do.
