Microscopic particles from tattoo ink can migrate into the body and wind up in lymph nodes, crucial hubs of the human immune system, a new study has revealed.
The tiny particles – measuring a few millionths to a few billionths of a centimetre – include molecules from preservatives and contaminants such as nickel, chromium, manganese and cobalt, researchers reported in the peer-reviewed journal Scientific Reports.
Scientists have found that people with multiple tattoos have a slightly tougher immune system than people with none. Researchers found that tattooing prepares the immune system to fight different types of stress associated with soft tissue damage.
Sean Wright made this tattoo today, but I- Alice Carrier, the person posting it here on our shop tumblr page, positively HOLLERED from across the room to this woman after the stencil was put on- “OH MY GAWD ARE YOU GETTING A MAGICIANS TATTOO!?” :D :D :D : D
