    I would get it in navy. I really don’t think have a small tattoo like that on your wrist would effect a future job… EVERYONE has tattoos nowadays. I mean, my bank teller is tatted! I have seen white tattoos in person and they really don’t age well over time. A darker color looks much bette.r

    I really like white tattoos, especially in very visible areas like that. Plus I feel it has more of positive significance for remembering your brother than the darkness of black or blue ink.

    I’ve never seen a white tattoo! But I say if you’re going to get it, get it done in dark ink. It’s imporatant and special to you- too important to hide.

    I’d definitely say dark.  I’m not a fan of white tattoos.

    Also remember that white ink doesn’t last as long in the body and needs to be redone every few years.

    Is there a compromise? Did your brother have a favorite color perhaps? Otherwise, I think navy. I agree that white tattoos look like a scar

    I’ve never seen an all-white tattoo, only shading in white. I think you should go with the dark (black/navy) tattoo, especially because you should be proud to be tattoed due to the symbolism.

    @pec1216: Plus its a friday too, the day you burried him 🙂 I say a dark color. Navy would be really pretty. White doesn’t cover very well, especially if you have olive skin. I am pretty fair skinned and you can hardly see the white in my tat. It looks more like lighter skin…

    I would get navy or black.

    Most jobs nowdays, even in conservative offices, allow tasteful tattoos. I work in a children’s hospital, visible tattoos are allowed as long as they aren’t inappropriate (like nude women) or scary (like devils). And on your wrist, you can easily cover it up with a thick watch or bracelet for interviews.

    You could do a combination, lots of white but with shading in nacy

    without shading I think white tattoos look like scaring

    @kala_way: Ooh!  I like the white with shading.  Otherwise, I think you should go with navy, OP.
