Tattoo Information

What is a Tattoo?

The skin is the largest organ of the body. It regulates body temperature, covers and protects the body and is a barrier against germs. There are 3 layers of skin. The epidermis (top layer) dermis, and endodermis.

A tattoo happens when pigment particles of approximately the size of 5 microns are deposited under the surface layers into the epidermis. The skin then heals over these particles and you are left with a tattoo. Any time that there are pigmented particles introduced under the skin it is technically a tattoo.

The first tattoo probably happened when a cave man somewhere poked himself with a sooty stick from a fire and when the injury healed it left a mark. As soon as they figured out the cause and effect, they experimented with the decorative qualities of this. People have been modifying their bodies ever since.
