Adorning your body with a tattoo is not a new concept. The earliest known tattoo was discovered on human skin dating over five thousand years ago. Until recently, tattoos were considered permanent.
For the most part, tattoos are relatively safe. Some of the more common health issues are:
• Granulomas (i.e. small knots or bumps)
• MRI Complications
According to a small study in the journal, Contact Dermatitis, about 10% experiences some health issue after getting a tattoo. Of those experiencing a problem, six in ten were chronic (e.g., itching or swelling for years). For some, removing the tattoo is the best option to eliminate these problems.
While many seeking a tattoo are concerned about the needles used in the process, few people know exactly what is in the ink. Tattoo inks are not closely regulated in the United States and different colors contain different chemicals.
