Integumentary System: How tattoos affect us
The Integumentary system is very important and vital to your body. It protects your body from most of the organisms outside, it also helps with water loss. This organ system is composed up of the skin and its many appendages.
In tattoo shops, sanitization is very important. Each organization is required to have separate cleaning sinks, with hot and cold water. One for sanitizing equipment and supplies another for washing hands. Skin infections are possible after tattooing. If the equipment used to create your tattoo is contaminated with infected blood you can contract various bloodborne diseases.

If you have tattoo allergies not long after you get your inked masterpiece, you can apply over the counter treatment onto the rash or affected area. Antibiotic ointment or hydrocortisone creams often bring relief, as do regular anti-itch creams and cold compresses.
Most tattoo artists charge an hourly rate that varies from about $75 to $150 an hour, depending on the tattoo you are wanting. Also the size of the tattoo you are wanting also.
Process of Getting a Tattoo
The process of getting a tattoo involves a series of needles insurting pigments of ink into the dermis region of your skins integumentary system.
is coloring bad?
Like any injury, the initial response is to stop bleeding, followed by tissue swelling. The ink itself is initially dispersed as fine granules in the upper dermis, but aggregate into more concentrated areas at 7-13 days.

color difference

Black ink is probably the easiest to remove, but if you got a white tattoo or a lighter color one, then its gonna be harder to see to remove the tattoo. There is really no difference in the colors, cause they affect you the same. some colors can be harder to see.
The First layer of the Integegumentary system is the epidermis. The epidermis contains no blood vessels and is always losing dead skin cells to gain more.
The dermis is the second layer of the Integumentary system. This houses the blood vessels, nerve endings, hair follicles.
The last layer is the hypodermis, it holds the fat underneath the Dermis. There are also larger nerves and blood vessels in this layer.
Immune System
The Immune System helps us with preventing and fighting diseases. These pathogens that enter the body can be harmful, if you have a strong immune system then your body can fight off these pathogens. If your body is week then it will have a hard time fighting them off.

Coloring can be bad in some ways. You can catch infections, an infection that is left untreated or inadequately treated could spread through the bloodstream, these infections may be associated with fever, shaking chills and sweats. If these symptoms arise, treatment with antibiotics, hospitalization and/or surgery may be required.

The integumentary system consists of the skin, hair, nails, glands, and nerves. Its main function is to act as a barrier to protect the body from the outside world. It also functions to retain body fluids, protect against disease, eliminate waste products, and regulate body temperature. In order to do these things, the integumentary system works with all the other systems of your body, each of which has a role to play in maintaining the internal conditions that a human body needs to function properly.

Sizing of Tattoo
The bigger the tattoo the more ink is used, Studies are showing that contaminated water used in black ink to make the ink grey is causing tattoo and skin infections. Colored ink can cause allergic skin reactions such as itchy rash at the tattoo site. This can occur even years after you get the tattoo. So yes, the bigger the tattoo, the more ink is used, the higher the risk.
