FDA Studies Effects Of Tattoo Ink On Human Health

Tattoo ink is made with two components: the carrier and the pigment. The carrier is to work as a suspension to keep the pigment evenly mixed and free from pathogens. Material safety data

sheets occupy from INTENZE inks . a famous tattoo ink company show that their most common carriers made of glycerin, water, alcohol, and witch hazel. Either single use of one of these carriers or a mixture of similar carriers seems to be the common practice across most ink companies and artists.
The aim of the carrier is to hold the pigment evenly distributed in a fluid matrix, to inhibit the growth of pathogens, to prevent clumping of pigment, and to aid in application to the skin .

Most tattoo inks technically aren’t inks. They are composed of pigments that are suspended in a carrier solution. Contrary to popular belief, pigments usually are not vegetable dyes. Today’s pigments primarily are metal salts. However, some pigments are plastics and there are probably some vegetable dyes too. The pigment provides the color of the tattoo. The purpose of the carrier is to disinfect the pigment suspension, keep it evenly mixed, and provide for ease of application.
