A tattoo is a permanent mark, design or image made on your skin with pigments inserted through pricks into the skin's top layer. Most tattoo artists uses a hand-held machine that acts much like a sewing machine. The machine has one or more needles used in piercing the skin repeatedly. With every puncture, the needles insert tiny ink droplets. Tattoos have became part of the fashion mostly with celebrities and young people who are trying to emulate the celebrities.
Historically, tattoos were used for decorations that were made with some inks that disappeared with time. Today tattoos are made permanent bacause the inks used can not be washed away easily. Today let's look at the effects of tattoos on the body.
The inks that are used have some allergic reactions to the skin of the user. Colours expecially red, green, yellow and blue normally react with the skin as research revealed. They cause skin reactions such as skin rush which is very ichy. The rush comes even after so many years of having the tattoo.
Tattoos also bring some skin infections. The skin is a one of the sensitive organs of the the human body. If it is disturbed or added some foreign substances, it will try to fight by reacting with the substances leading to skin infection. Sometimes an area of inflammation called a granuloma can form around tattoo ink. Tattooing also can lead to keloids which are raised areas caused by an overgrowth of scar tissue on the skin.
If the equipment used to create your tattoo is contaminated with infected blood, you can contract various bloodborne diseases including and not limited to methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), hepatitis B and hepatitis C which may lead to death if not well treated.
Mostly if your skin has tattoos or permanent makeup, it might cause swelling or burning in the affected areas and during magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) examinations, the area might not be clearly seen. Hence interfering with the image quality.
