How Tattoo ink is Dangerous for Health

Nobody would answer yes to the invitation you inject under the skin few grams of substances used in polishing body passenger car or soot produced by burning crude oil on, however, many people makes tattoos unaware that labor consists precisely in injection such substances, writes Deutsche Welle.

"Substances used to create tattoos duration and high contrast have been developed for printers and machines," says Wolfgang Bäumler, a professor in the department of dermatology at the University of Regensburg.

Large companies producing chemical dyes pigments used in tattoos, but mostly for industry and smaller companies buy pigments to make them tattoo ink.The colors used in tattoo ink must be absolutely insoluble in water, in turn stressed Wolfgang Bäumler adding that only in this way they do not pose a health risk.

Also, recent studies have shown us that only two thirds of the ink used for tattoos remain in the skin, the other third spreading in the body. "She migrate into the blood, lymph nodes, organs and no one knows where or what happens to it," says Bäumler.Chemicals to produce color red, orange and yellow are functions nitrogenous compounds, organic substances which have a reputation for being problematic for health, which often causes allergic reactions.

Some of them - eg 22 red pigment - a tattoo can decompose when exposed to sunlight, says Bäumler. The resulting compounds are toxic and can cause cancer.The substances are used for tattoos called phthalocyanine blue or green. They often contain metals such as copper and nickel.

Brown inks are made from iron oxides which also contain nickel which can cause allergic reactions and is even banned in cosmetic products. Black tattoos are created with inks containing a material called carbon black produced by burning oil or other products such as tar and rubber.

Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons formed during the production of black smoke can cause cancer.But given the health risks are not only pigments, writes Deutsche Welle. Tattoo ink may contain other substances such as, for example, solvents, thickeners, preservatives, and more contaminants, expert says Federal Institute for Risk Assessment in GermanyLaux warned that the market no tattoo ink that is free of pollutants.

In Germany, as in many other countries, tattoo inks are considered as not drugs or cosmetics. If they had such status they should seek approval to be sold on the market. Safety tests for drugs are necessary to show what happens when a substance enters the body, it is metabolized and what other substances may form. Inks used in tattoos there are no such rules or tests.

Deutsche Welle reminds that in 2008, the European Council called for tighter regulations on tattoo ink. Subsequently, some countries have adopted laws, but Laux believes they are insufficient, writes Deutsche Welle.
