to give some idea bout how the colours turn out, have a look at my avatar the red in that is monthly red and you don't have to try hard to get it in.

You really need to be carful with white because it doesn't look like it's gone in but it seems to show after the tattoo has healed, so just go over the area once or twice at the most.

I can see where you are coming from but to get a good result with white it is best used undiluted, it is a bit of trial and error most people make the mistake of thinking it hasn't gone in and so over work the area, it's not really a good colour for large areas and is used a lot just for high lights, i would use it strait out of the bottle and see how you go on.
