Metallic Nano-particles From Worn Tattoo Needles May Be Cause for Allergic Reaction


New research has found that nickel- and chromium-related contact allergic reactions may have more to do with worn out tattoo needles than the ingredients in tattoo ink. Titanium dioxide particles found in white tattoo inks--often used to brighten other colours--appear to abrade tattoo needles, leading to tiny particles of nickel and chromium being deposited in the skin. Those particles then travel to the lymph nodes.
