Transcript: During initial times tattoos were made by hands, but in 1891 the first electric tattoo machine was issued to the Irish tattooist Samuel O'Reilly at the United States Patent Office. He began his business as a "tattoo parlor" in New York City. This was the first tattoo studio in the United States. Soon the tattoo parlors became the trend in the United States of America. Then, during the First and Second World Wars, military of United States adopted tattooing as a means of protection and remembrance. Conventions, magazines, and other kinds of exposure, made tattooing popular in the country. -Cosmetic reasons -Religious reasons -Sentimental reasons -Identification of particular groups -Punishment -Medal for courage Tattoos breach the skin, which means that skin infections and other complications are possible. Specific risks include: -Allergic reactions. Tattoo dyes — especially red dye — can cause allergic skin reactions, resulting in an itchy rash at the tattoo site. This may occur even years after you get the tattoo. -Skin infections. Tattoos can lead to local bacterial infections, characterized by redness, swelling, pain and a pus-like drainage. -Other skin problems. Sometimes bumps called granulomas form around tattoo ink — especially red ink. Tattooing can also lead to raised areas caused by an overgrowth of scar tissue (keloids). -Bloodborne diseases. If the equipment used to create your tattoo is contaminated with infected blood, you can contract various bloodborne diseases, including hepatitis B, hepatitis C, tetanus and HIV — the virus that causes AIDS. -MRI complications. Rarely, tattoos or permanent makeup may cause swelling or burning in the affected areas during magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) exams. In some cases — such as when a person with permanent eyeliner has an MRI of the eye — tattoo pigments may interfere with the quality of the image. -Before the tattoo artists starts making the design on your body, make sure that he/she is using new, sterile disposable instruments. At the same time, ensure that he/she uses fresh ink for each session. -It is always advisable to look through the tattoo artist's portfolio. Through it, you will be able to see his work and ascertain whether he/she is really good or not. -Relax yourself completely before getting the tattoo made. If you are nervous and fidgeting too much, the artist will find it difficult to make the tattoo perfectly. -Insist on the tattoo artist to wash his/her hands with water and soap, or a standard sanitizing agent, and wear latex gloves, before making the design. -The tattoo artist must provide clear tattoo aftercare instructions and products. Do not forget to gather the information from him/her. Scabbing and Peeling After a few days, you will notice some peeling and possibly a little scabbing. Excessive scabbing could indicate a poorly-done tattoo, but a little is sometimes normal and there is no need to panic. Apply warm moist compresses to the scabs for about 5 minutes 2-3 times a day to soften them and they will eventually come off on their own. (Do not apply ointment or lotion to a softened scab - wait for it to dry) You will also start to itch, just like a sunburn when it begins to heal. The advice here is, don't pick, and don't scratch! If the skin itches, slap it. If it is peeling, put lotion on it. And if it is scabbing, just leave it alone. Your tattoo is almost healed, and now is not the time to ruin it! Is it OK to lay out in the sun or go to the tanning bed when you have tattoos? Tattoos - How Much Do They Really Hurt? Purposes Know the risks Tips to remember! History of tattoos


Transcript: Tattoos Procedure Safety The tattoo artist should wear Latex gloves during the entire procedure. Every tattoo should be done with a sterile needle. Apply an antibiotic cream on the tattoo twice a day until it is completely healed. Most people think the tattoo is on the epidermis of the skin, this however, is not true. The ink is actually in the dermis of the skin, but can be seen through the dermis. The cells of the dermis are much more stable than the cells of the epidermis. This prevents the tattoo from fading. Integument System The integument sysetm includes the skin, hair, nails, and receptors. The skin protects the inside of the body. Hair and nails are to protect the bodyand regulate tempurature. Receptors in the integument system are for touch and feeling. If you have a medical problem such as heart disease, allergies, diabetes, skin disorders, a condition that affects your immune system, infections, or if you are pregnant, ask your doctor if there are any special concerns you should have or precautions you should take beforehand. Random Facts As of 2006 36% of people from the age of 18 to 29 had at least one tattoo. Tattooing is the sixth fastest growing retail venture of the 1990's, right behind Internet, paging services, bagels, computer and cellular phone service.

Immune System 1) The tattoo artist will first wash his or her hands with a germicidal soap. 2) The to-be-tattooed area on your body will be cleaned and disinfected. 3) The tattoo artist will put on clean, fresh gloves (and possibly a surgical mask). 4) The tattoo artist will explain the sterilization procedure to you and open up the single-use, sterilized equipment (such as needles, etc.). 5) Using the tattoo machine (with a sterile, single-use needle attached), the tattoo artist will begin drawing an outline of the tattoo under your skin. 6) The outline will be cleaned with antiseptic soap and water. 7) Sterile, thicker needles will be installed on the tattoo machine, and the tattoo artist will start shading the design. After cleaning the area again, color will be injected. A new bottle of ink should be opened for each individual. 8) Any blood will be removed by a sterile, disposable cloth or towel. 9) When finished, the area, now sporting a finished tattoo, will be cleaned once again and a bandage will be applied. Notes Remember that the tattoo is an open wound and it needs to stay covered for at least twelve hours.

Transcript: Why do people start getting tattooed? "I knew eventually down the road I wanted tattoos. I always loved seeing them on people and hearing the stories tied to them." -Jamie Kinser "Maybe I've hit it lucky profession wise, or maybe some people are just starting to understand that tattoos won't determine how hard of a worker you are. My friends are always supportive and my family doesn't care" -Jamie Kinser Laser tattoo removal rose 32% from 2011 to 2012 with "employment reasons" cited. -The Patient's Guide, August 2012 More than 25% of adults are offended when colleagues wear tattoo-revealing outfits at work. "To understand a body is to organize it. To organize a body is to exert power through it, enclosing it in limited meaning. A tattooed body resists organization by presenting another layer which must be organized, the signification of which is volitional but neither clear nor stable." Why do people continue to add to their collection? Jamie Kinser "My family wonders why it is that I "ruin my beautiful body". When I'm working, I'll get comments on how stupid I am for doing that." -Kait Summer "I like to think that my tattoos reflect me as an artist. Everything I have on my body means something to me. I love my tattoos." - Kait Summer "Starting two years ago after my mother passed away I started getting them in exposed places. I guess it helped me cope." - Jamie Kinser How does society/family/friends react? "I got this tattoo a few years ago because I tried to commit suicide. It reminds me that no matter how hard life can be, there will always be a brighter day and things will get better." -Taylor Davis "Well, I never stopped having ideas. Also, I think it's cool that I can have my life story literally written all over me." -Susan Abraham "If I get a couple of weeks off, I'll go get more [tattoos]. I've got a couple of blank spots, I've got to finish my project. It develops, you know, with time." -Rick Genest "I got an OM symbol because I love what it means and I think it is "me"." -Kait Summer Corban Langman Taylor Davis Susan Abraham "My uncle had some tattoos that I remember being very interested in as a kid, I was fascinated with the concept of wearable art." -Susan Abraham "It's been a mixed bag. I've gotten "why did you do that" to "where do you get your work" -Susan Abraham Kait Summer The Co-culture of the Tattoo Industry "My parents told me they would kick me out if I got a tattoo." -Taylor Davis
