Is Tattoo Poison a Myth or a Real Threat? Find Out!

Is it time to contact a Tattoo Removal Specialist?

People love to tell you when you get a new tattoo that you might regret it when you’re older. While that may or may not be true on a case-by-case basis, there could be a whole number of reasons why you might want to remove your ink. Luckily, at Miami Center for Dermatology, their team of professional Tattoo Removal Specialist is overqualified in removing your tattoo safely with minimal after effects. Similar to how the sun gradually fades tattoos, the laser treatment breaks down the ink of the tattoo allowing it to be absorbed by the skin. The lasers being used in their facility is not only effective, but it is also natural since it essentially just speeds up the natural process of tattoo fading.


The Truth About Tattoo Poisoning

The last thing you want to think about when getting a tattoo is whether or not you are going to walk away poisoned. You are thinking about how you plan on showing off your new ink, not so much if whether or not you made the right decision. Unfortunately, tattoo poisoning is a genuine threat. There is a chance that the ink will break down and leech onto the lymph nodes. It isn’t even the ink pigment that causes the harm; it is the impurities that come with it. Due to the dangers that come from using the ink used to produce a permanent tattoo, it makes the argument that tattooing is not entirely risk-free. Contaminants such as nickel, chromium, manganese, or cobalt can become oxidized, causing your body to break out in an allergic reaction. Not exactly the cool tattooed look you were going for if you suddenly have a rash to cover it. Sadly, it is not enough to do your research in making sure the tattoo parlor uses sterile tools. Sometimes, it’s the ink that is causing the infections and irritations rather than the tools being used to inject the ink. With these effects being lifelong, it is essential to make sure you are looking out for yourself and your skin’s health!
