Why Makes Tattoos Permanent?

The tattoo needles with ink stuck between them puncture the skin about 50-3000 times per minute. These needles go through the epidermis (outer layer of skin) and until the dermis (second layer of skin). The dermis contains blood capillaries, sweat glands, and nerve endings - this is why tattoos are sometimes painful. (Source:

Choosing the Right Ink

Ink plays an important role in the creation of your tattoo and its style. Depending on the brand and quality, you might also see better results, but also a higher cost. For example, ink used even five years ago isn't as good as some of the new inks that are available today. (Source: guides.co)

UV tattoos, also known as glow-in-the-dark tattoos, are made with ink that's fluorescent in ultraviolet light (blacklight). The ink may cause allergic reactions, and the FDA has not officially approved the use of these inks.

Many people are allergic to red ink. If you're not sure whether you're allergic or not, have the tattoo artist do a red ink dot on your foot. It will fade away faster and you'll know pretty quickly whether you're allergic or not. In general, red ink tends to fade over time quicker than dark colors. (Source: guides.co)

The choice of your tattoo coloring is as important as the picture itself. The theme, size, and your skin tone all play a role in choosing the appropriate coloring, and is something to discuss at your consultation. The tattoo artist should be able to suggest the most suitable coloring for you based on your skin tone. (Source: guides.co)
