5Global ConnectionThe earliest recorded tattoos were found in Egypt during the time of the construction of the great pyramidsWhen the Egyptians expanded their empire, the art of tattooing spread as well.The civilizations of Crete, Greece, Persia, and Arabia picked up and expanded the art form.Around 2000 BC tattooing spread to China.
6Tattoos: Understand risks & precautions Tattoos may be more common than ever, but don't take tattooing lightly.Know the risks and understand basic safety precautions and aftercare steps.You could be the owner of a new tattoo in a matter of hours — but don't let the ease of getting tattoos stop you from making a thoughtful decision about permanent body art.If you first take steps to protect yourself from possible risks, what seems like a cool idea now is less likely to turn into a source of regret later.
7How Tattoos Are DoneTattoo: a permanent mark or design made on your skin with pigments inserted through pricks into the skin's top layer.Typically, the tattoo artist uses a hand-held machine that acts much like a sewing machine, with one or more needles piercing the skin repeatedly.With every puncture, the needles insert tiny ink droplets.
8What’s the Procedure Like? The tattoo artist will first wash his or her hands with a germicidal soap.The to-be-tattooed area on your body will be cleaned and disinfected.The tattoo artist will put on clean, fresh glovespossibly a surgical maskThe tattoo artist will explain the sterilization procedure to you and open up the single-use, sterilized equipmentUsing the tattoo machine, the tattoo artist will begin drawing an outline of the tattoo under your skin.
9The ProcedureThe outline will be cleaned with antiseptic soap and water.Sterile, thicker needles will be installed on the tattoo machine, and the tattoo artist will start shading the design.After cleaning the area again, color will be injected.A new bottle of ink should be opened for each individual.Any blood will be removed by a sterile, disposable cloth or towel.When finished, the area will be cleaned once again and a bandage will be applied.
10If you’re thinking about it There is one very important thing you have to keep in mind — getting it done safely.Although it might look a whole lot cooler than a big scab, a new tattoo is also a wound.Like any other slice, scrape, puncture, cut, or penetration to your skin, a tattoo is at risk for infections and disease.
11Plan Ahead—for tattoos & piercing Make sure you're up to date with your immunizationsEspecially hepatitis and tetanus shotsPlan where you’ll get medical care if your tattoo becomes infectedSigns of infectionExcessive rednessTenderness around the tattooProlonged bleedingPusChanges in skin color around the tattoo
12Talk To Your Doctor If you have a medical problem Heart DiseaseAllergiesDiabetesSkin DisordersA condition that affects your immune systemInfectionsOr if you are pregnantAsk your doctor if there are any special concerns you should have or precautions you should take beforehand
13Know The RisksTattoos breach (break) the skin, which means that skin infections and other complications are possible.Let’s look at some of the risks…
14Allergic ReactionsTattoo dyes, especially red dye, can cause allergic skin reactionsitchy rash at the tattoo siteThis may occur even years after you get the tattoo.
15Skin Infections Tattoos can lead to local bacterial infections. RednessSwellingPainPus-like drainage
16Other Skin ProblemsSometimes bumps called granulomas form around tattoo ink — especially red ink.Tattooing can also lead to raised areas caused by an overgrowth of scar tissue (keloids)
17Blood Borne DiseasesIf the equipment used to create your tattoo is contaminated with infected blood, you can contract various blood borne diseases.Hepatitis BHepatitis CTetanusHIV — the virus that causes AIDS
18MRI ComplicationsRarely, tattoos or permanent makeup may cause swelling or burning in the affected areas during magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) exams.In some cases — such as when a person with permanent eyeliner has an MRI of the eye — tattoo pigments may interfere with the quality of the image.
19In Your Journals How do you feel about tattoos? When you see somebody with a lot of tattoos what do you think?Do you have any tattoos?If so, tell us how/why you got them.

20In Your Journals Do you have any piercings? If so, how/why did you got them?How do you react to the following piercings: do you think that they are natural, attractive, weird, or unattractive?EarNoseTongueLipEyebrowBelly Button
21TreatmentMedication or other treatment may be needed if you develop an allergic reaction, infection or other skin problem.In some cases, the tattoo may need to be removed.Keep in mind that tattoo inks are classified as cosmetics, so they aren't regulated or approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
22Insist on Safety Precautions Professional studios usually take pride in their cleanliness.Here are some things to check for…
23Autoclave Make sure the tattoo studio has an autoclave a device that uses steam, pressure, and heat for sterilizationYou should be allowed to watch as equipment is sterilized in the autoclaveInstruments and supplies that can't be sterilized with an autoclavedrawer handles, tables and sinksShould be disinfected with a commercial disinfectant or bleach solution after each use
24Who Does the Tattooing?Go to a reputable tattooing studio that employs only properly trained employeesCheck that the tattoo artist is a licensed practitionerIf so, the tattoo artist should be able to provide you with references
25Does the tattoo artist wear gloves? Make sure the tattoo artist washes his or her hands and wears a fresh pair of protective gloves for each procedure.
26Does the tattoo artist use proper equipment? Make sure the tattoo artist removes a needle and tubes from sealed packages before your procedure begins.Any pigments, trays and containers should be unused as well.
27No RegretIf the studio looks unclean, if anything looks out of the ordinary, or if you feel in any way uncomfortable, find a better place to get your tattoo.Don't get a tattoo if you're under the influence of alcohol or drugs or worry that you might regret the tattoo later.
28Taking Care of a TattooThe last step in getting a tattoo is very important — taking care of the tattoo until it fully heals.Follow all of the instructions the studio gives youCall your doctor right away if you see or feel any signs of infectionpain, spreading redness, swelling, or drainage of pus
29To make sure your tattoo heals properly Keep a bandage on the area for up to 24 hoursAvoid touching the tattooed areaDon't pick at any scabs that may formWash the tattoo with an antibacterial soapdon't use alcohol or peroxide — they'll dry out the tattooUse a soft towel to dry the tattoojust pat it dry and be sure not to rub it
30Take Good Care of your Tattoo If you don't have an allergy to antibiotic ointment, rub some into the tattoo.Don't use petroleum jelly (Vaseline)it may cause the tattoo to fadePut an ice pack on the tattooed area if you see any redness or swellingTry not to get the tattoo wet until it fully healsStay away from pools, hot tubs, or long, hot baths.Keep your tattoo away from the sun until it's fully healed
31Even after it’s fully healed: A tattoo is more susceptible to the sun's raysKeep it protected from direct sunlightWear a sunscreen with a SPF of 30 on the tattooThis not only protects your skin, but keeps the tattoo from fading
33Social ConsequencesConsider the negative consequences of tattooing your body for lifeAlthough tattoos have become more socially acceptable there are still sections of the general public that look down on tattoos Many tattoo seekers do not realize the negative effects of getting a tattoo in a visible place
34StereotypesWhen you think of someone with a tattoo, what comes to mind? A biker? A sailor? A rebellious teen?These are all stereotypes of tattoos in American culture
35Getting a Job—Tattoos & Piercing Employers have a say about the acceptability of tattoos and piercing if it is in their dress codeThey can say no to visible tattoos as long as they are consistentIf you have tattoos that can be covered up, you do have a better chance of being hired in corporate AmericaCovering a tattoo for career reasons can be a commitment in its self. This is one reason artists may discourage a tattoo seeker from getting a neck, face, or even a lower arm tattoo. The armed services is also very strict on tattoos being viewable to the public while in the service.
36Body Piercing A piercing or puncture made in your body by a needle. After that, a piece of jewelry is inserted into the puncture.The most popular pierced body parts seem to be the ears, the nostrils, and the belly button.
37What to Expect:The area you've chosen to be pierced (except for the tongue) is cleaned with a germicidal soapYour skin is then punctured with a very sharp, clean needle.The piece of jewelry, which has already been sterilized, is attached to the area.The person performing the piercing disposes of the needle in a special container so that there is no risk of the needle or blood touching someone else.
38What to Expect: The pierced area is cleaned. The person performing the piercing checks and adjusts the jewelry.The person performing the piercing gives you instructions on how to make sure your new piercing heals correctly and what to do if there is a problem.
