The Geräte köcan, depending on the Qualität and performance, up to ungefähr stinging 10.000 stitches per Minute into the skin.

Beware of infections

Ädoctors and experienced Tätowierer warn, to hunt down self-ink under the skin. The adventure carries a lot of risks.

"Grundsäin addition, the color should ungefähr 1.2 to 1.5 mm deep into the skin." You stab deep into the skin, can be the Tattoo quickly stained. Außerdem köcan häterrible scars. The color is engraved only in the top layer of skin, it can happen that the ink verläthe uft and the contours blurred.

Permanently visible, the Tattoo remains, only, if it is exactly between the two layers of the skin ­is introduced: In the Dermis, the dermis is called a store of the tattoo colors permanently. But to make exactly this layer f&uuml is particularly;r the layman is not easy. Because the thickness of the skin, can on the whole Köthe body will be very different. Therefore, the engraving depth must be depending on the motif and Köbody point be precisely adjusted.

Phagocytic cells keep the color in the skin

Why is the color in the leather skin is actually a life-long visible? Grundsäin addition ­the skin renews itself Yes regelmäßig: ­Minor wounds and injuries heal, and scars will fade with time.

The tattoo gets color in the Dermis, to take the macrophages and put in the layer of the skin to rest. If you später once to die, stoßfrom the pigments, and the nänext macrophages to take. According to the immuno-Aix Universit&eacute lied; in Marseille (France) is repeated this process ­again and again – and the color remains in the skin.

Nevertheless, lässt usually only vaguely predict how well a Tätattoo can get rid of. Raulin stresses: "A Tattoo should always &uuml well;be considerate. No one should be from a beer or wine mood at a Party, grooving, but always in a Studio, after a very careful Üreflecting on the day and with a clear mind. Because fashion trends köalso &auml can;change."
