Effects on the Layers of Skin

The tattoo goes through the epidermis sits in the dermis and the epidermis peels and if it is done correctly it won't reach the hypodermis. The tattoo pigment may go deeper into the dermis which is why it fades. Before you get a tattoo make sure you are immunized for hepatitis and tetanus because infection could occur.
