What white ink are you using? Usually the ink you get with kits will be very very difficult to see and will not last.
Moms and eternal are known for being the best whites.

Tip/tubes are another major factor. Always use a fresh tip (Preferably disposable) just for the white.

I agree with Sarah, I use moms, the thing to remember about white ink is it,s a one pass only ink, don't over work the area, it doesn't look like it's gone in but when it heals it seems to pop out.

I use Intenze opaque White. It hardly shows when tattooing, but will be there once healed. Obviously pig skin won't always give a true reflection. :icon_wink:

Some would suggest adding a drop of blue you still keep the white luster but it makes it a little eiasier o see when going in :icon_mrgreen: :icon_cheesygrin: Ed :icon_cool:
