Tattoos in Barcelona
The word tattoo comes from the Samoan language and means mark. From ancient, tattoos were known as a way of body ornamentation. The eldest archaeological remains dates from Neolithic. The most known example is the mummy of Ötzi, whose body has more than 57 tattoos, most of them on his back. Contrary to popular belief, the art of tattooing not only existed in the Polynesian culture, but also was used in other cultures, like in the Japanese or in the Arabic one (this last one in the variety of henna tattoos).
The tattoo application is the less studied part of the tattoo world and, probably, the one with less information about. What we know is that the tattoo is made by injecting ink in the skin through a tattoo machine.The needle gets into the skin (approximately one millimetre depth) and there, leaves tiny drops of ink that the skin is not able to eliminate.The ink stays in the second layer of the skin, the Dermis, because its cells are much more steady than the first layer, the Epidermis.The needle can get into the skin even 3.000 times per minute. The needle sterilization is a fundamental part at any kind of tattoo because this kind of wounds has a high risk of infection and diseases transmission. However, most of the responsibility is on the tattooist protocol: It doesn’t matter the equipment or ink quality if the application is not properly.
