New study claims that the tattoo you have is leaking metal into your lymph nodes


PHOENIX – There is a new study out that says the tattoo you have is leaking metal into your lymph nodes.

According to a study from BMC – Particle and Fibre Toxicology, found that “nano- and micrometer sized tattoo needle wear particles in human skin that translocate to lymph nodes.”

So what does that mean? It means those particles are slowly poisoning you. Common side effects leading up to it are allergic reactions to your skin.

“We were following up on our previous study, by trying to find the link between iron, chromium and nickel and the coloring of the inks,” study author Ines Schreiver, of the Federal Institute for Risk Assessment in Germany, tells News Atlas. “After studying several human tissue samples and finding metallic components, we realized that there must be something else…Then we thought of testing the needle and that was our ‘eureka’ moment.”

Not sure if I believe this only because there are so many tattoo shops/artists who probably use different kinds of tattoo materials and techniques.
