A tattoo is a puncture wound, made deep in your skin, that's filled with ink. It's made by penetrating your skin with a needle and injecting ink into the area, usually creating some sort of design. What makes tattoos so long-lasting is they're so deep — the ink isn't injected into the epidermis (the top layer of skin that you continue to produce and shed throughout your lifetime). Instead, the ink is injected into the dermis, which is the second, deeper layer of skin. Dermis cells are very stable, so the tattoo is practically permanent.
Tattoos used to be done manually — that is, the tattoo artist would puncture the skin with a needle and inject the ink by hand. Though this process is still used in some parts of the world, most tattoo shops use a tattoo machine these days. A tattoo machine is a handheld electric instrument that uses a tube and needle system. On one end is a sterilized needle, which is attached to tubes that contain ink. A foot switch is used to turn on the machine, which moves the needle in and out while driving the ink about 1/8 inch (about 3 millimeters) into your skin.
I do love tattoo …but don’t have the guts to do so, I really want too but not the permenant 1, if possible can be remove after for a certain year which is impossible these days..haha imagine if I’m reaching 60’s then with the tattoo…wonder how it is look like with sagging skin?

Did You Know?
Tattoos have been around for a long, long time, Throughout history, tattoos were mostly worn as decoration. They’ve been found on mummified bodies dating back to 3300BC, and it’s well known that many societies wore (and still wear) tattoos as part of their culture.
