THE TOUCH SENSORY NERVES IN THE SKIN ALLOW US TO FEEL PAIN, HEAT, AND TEXTURES. Fun Facts About the I.S. The Skin The Process of Tattooing Tattoos are created by injecting ink into the dermis of the skin. Artists typically use an electrically powered tattoo machine that sounds like a dental drill. The machine has needles that move up and down and puncture the skin between 50 and 3,000 times per minute. The needle punctures the skin by about a millimeter and leaves a drop of insoluble ink with each puncture.
When you look at someone's tattoo, you are seeing the ink through their epidermis. The ink is deposited in the dermis because the cells in the dermis aren't constantly being replaced, so the ink never goes away.
Tattooing is a highly regulated business, as the entire process must be as sterile as possible because of the use of needles and risk of blood-borne diseases. Tattooing is normally a very sterile process. However, getting a tattoo from a less-than-professional artist puts the customer at risk of many health problems. These may include: HIV/AIDS
Hepatitis
tuberculosis
syphilis
Bacterial infections
Allergic reactions However, these can be prevented by the parlor by simply using precautionary measures, such as changing needles, using rubber gloves, and cleaning punctured areas with soap. The only real downsides to having a tattoo are that they are permanent and they are painful to get, and even more painful and expensive to remove. So, if you're going to get a tattoo, make sure it's something you won't regret in the future.
Also, it is important to take the time to give it proper care. For example, keeping it out of prolonged direct sunlight, regularly treating it with ointment, Everybody's Got Tats! Tattoos aren't just for thugs, sailors, and bikers! Nerds can have tats too! In Carl Zimmer's book, "science tattoo: Tattoos of the science-obsessed", he shows the tattoos of numerous scientists who had previously been hiding their ink. Vendela Chan
