There are several conditions that can lighten penile skin. The most common would likely be vitiligo. A visit to your local dermatologist could help clarify the diagnosis and rule out other diseases that lighten skin.  Your dermatologist could also introduce you to a few potential treatments. Tattooing a large surface area of genital skin would not be highly recommended because it could result in significant pain or loss of sensation afterward that could be permanent. Phototherapy might be a safer option than tattooing.
