Transcript of TAts:
A Harris poll in 2012 found that 1 out of every 5 adults- 21 percent- has at least one tattoo.
Closer to 40 percent of people among those ages 18 to 29.
What do tattoos do to the skin?
Every time that the needle penetrates the skin the body starts the inflammatory process. Cells from the immune system go to the area that is under attack. Macrophages eat the dye that is injected into the skin. These macrophages do not have a way to dispose of the dyes, so the ink remains in the dermis. The tattoo will fade after the skin sheds the epidermis layer.
More effects of Tats on the body
The mercury, nickel, and other metals within the ink could cause the body to have an allergic reaction to the metals.
If an item that come in direct contact with the client’s skin can’t be sanitized and disinfected, it must be thrown away in a covered waste receptacle immediately after use.
Liquids must be dispensed with a squeeze bottle or pump.
Creams and lotions must be dispensed using a disposable or sanitized and disinfected applicator.

How are tattoos removed?
With quality-switched, or Q switched, lasers. The laser looks for the difference in skin tone and ink and pulses intensely on the skin to break the ink down into particles small enough for your immune system to absorb. The skin can be effected with slight discoloration and possible blisters and minimum scarring due to the amounts of treatment.
How the skin is effected when the tattoo is removed?
Nowadays we have more advanced technology so the damage to the skin has become rarer. The coomon problem with people with dark skin is that usually when the tattoo is removed it leaves thee area a lighter color. Temporary blistering. Painful blisters, and scarring from scabs. Better to see a dermatolagist instead of a tattoo artist for removal of a tattoo.
So are tattoos worth getting?
