Default Can I dye this jacket?

Hello rambros!

I want to purchase this jacket but I am not liking the white 'tattoo' design.
Would I be able to effectively dye the white to a not so flashy black?
Also; can I primer and paint the chrome shoulder sliders too?

Don't stress life because in the end you'll never make it out alive.

if the tattoo stuff is leather, I think it would be very hard to dye. If it is just stitching, it should be pretty easy.

Yes, you can paint the shoulder pieces. They should come off, but even if they don't you can tape around them.

With time, and effort that you'll be putting into this one.'

You're better off getting another jacket that you do like.

You can dye leather, using leather dye, most fabric dye is for natural fibers but do a search and see what you can find.
I re-dye most of my cloths since I am not a fan of the faded look. I did dye a leather belt once and accidental my cat at the time.
I buy from this guy,
