Tattoo Process
First, the tattoo artist will start the tattoo process by cleanng your skin with antibacterial soap and shaving the area where the tattoo will be. Then after the area has been cleaned and shaved the next step is applying the tattoo stencil.
Once the stencil has come to a successful conclusion, your artist will want to let the stencil dry. This is to ensure that the stencil is dry enough that it wont wipe away during the tattoo process. They will use this time to pour inks and set up tattoo machines. They will use paper towels to wipe the tattoo clear of ink and blood throughout the process.
Healing Process
After the tattoo process, your artist will gently wash the area and bandage it to protect it from bacteria. It becomes red and a little raised or swollen. You should apply a dab of aftercare lotion your artist recommends. For a week, scabs will form and can peel, it is important to not scratch your tattoo it can cause damage the tattoo. Applying more aftercare lotion will help. After that week scabs should be completely gone and tattoo should be completely healed.
Health Issues
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.
The bigger the tattoo is, 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 and the higher the risk.
Does the size of the tattoo affect skin and health?
Integumentary system
This system protects the body from various kinds of damages. It has four functions; excretes, protects, regulation of body temperature and elimination. It contains the epidermis which is the top layer of the skin, the dermis (the layer the tattoo process gets to), and finally the hypodermis the innermost and thickest layer.
