If I get a tattoo on the upper bicep area, or any where, could the Vitiligo make the tattoo fade?

Hi Docs, tattoos, for better for worse, are very popular. I am a very pale skinned caucasian male with widespread Vitiligo, though, through vigilant sun avoidance, the patches are not too obvious, I also use a spray on tan, which masks the areas beautifully. Le tan Instant tan (in Australia). If I get a tattoo on the upper bicep area, or any where, could the Vitiligo make the tattoo fade , as the trauma to the area make made the skin loose pigment ?
