Black bathroom Tile - Bad idea?

Is black a bad idea because fingerprints and dust etc will show up more?

I love the look of black honed granite mosaic tile in the bathroom with a glossy granite vanity top with white walls and vanity.(Really small bathroom)

I got a sample of the tiles and looks like it would be too hard to maintain. Fingerprints show up and are too easily visible. Maybe I should re-think.

Black bathroom Tile - Bad idea?

I have black in my bathroom. All glossy, solid color fields show smudges, dust, etc. Darker colors show dust more because dust tends to be light colored. However, black granite will have some flecks of white and gray in it, won't it?
