Transcript: How Tattoos Affect the Integumentry System The Tattooing Process Explained Brief Summary: The tattoo artist will select a machine with a variety of sterile needles. Each indivual tatoo needle has smaller needles attached to them coming to a single point with dye linked in between. The needles when triggred by the coil (Tattoo Machine) peirce through the skin deep enough to drag the ink deep into the dermis leaving the ink to reamin permanent in the skin of the person. The Tattooing Process Explained What Makes Tattoos Permanent In order for a tattoo to remain in the skin the tattoo must go beneath the five sublayers of the epidermis and 1mm to 2mm deep into the dermis. Furthermore, when a tattoo goes into the dermis the body reacts as if it was an open wound and sends white blood cells to fight off the potential wound/infection. When microphages get to the wound they are only able to fight and carry a few of the dye pigments away leaving most behind causing them tbe left behind and remain visible in the skin. What Makes Tattoos Permanent How Tattoos Are Permanent Cont. Also, tattoos remain permanet because the pigment of the dye is too big for the white blood cells to completly be absorbed How Tattoos Are Permanent Cont. What Can Happen if the Needle Does Not Go Deep Enough If the needle and the ink does not go into the dermis the tattoo will not remain permanent. The tattoo will not remain permanent because the epidermis regenerates new skin cells roughy every 25-30 days. This means the tattoo would fade out and diminish along with the rest of the dead skin cells. What Can Happen if the Needle Does Not Go Deep Enough How Tattoos Can Affect the Immune System Positively Research by The American Journal of Human Biology suggests that getting inked can actually toughen up your immune system. Reasoning behind this study is it causes the body to adapt to future tattoos and allows the body to heal faster. Another study also concluded that the IGA levels of those with no pre-existing tattos experineced more stress and a larger spike in IGA levels compared to those who have pre-existing tattoos following the inking session. How Tattoos Can Affect the Immune System Positively How Tattoos affect the Immune System Negatively While getting a tattoo the skin is puntured, causing bleeding, which can put one at risk of contracting Hepatitis B. While it is rare between one and five percent of tattooed people suffer a bacterial infection, and some people can have allergic reactions to the ink Lastly, a study published this year found that tattoos may interfere with the way your skin sweats. Compared to non-tattooed skin, inked skin excretes about 50% less sweat How Tattoos affect the Immune System Negatively Works Cited Works Cited
