How Conventional Tattoos Work:

Components of a Tattoo: Pigment & Carrier Solution.

Tattoos are made up of two components: pigment (ink), which imparts color, and carrier solution, which distributes the pigment evenly in the skin. Depending on the color, tattoo inks can be made from many different kinds of materials, some understood and some not so well understood. The size of the tattoo ink particles also is important.

Carrier solution is a clear liquid that is pre-mixed with the ink; carrier solution is usually made from isopropyl alcohol, witch hazel, or sometimes distilled water.

The Layers of the Skin.

The skin has 3 layers called the epidermis, dermis, and hypodermis. When a tattoo gets applied, it ends up in the dermis. If the tattoo artist uses good ink and applies the tattoo correctly, cells within the dermis will heal around the tattoo ink particles and signal to the rest of your body that this foreign material is no longer a risk. Once the body heals around the ink particles the tattoo will usually remain there for life, depending on sun exposure and other environmental variables.

Components of the Tattoo Healing Process – skill of the tattoo artist, quality of the tattoo ink, and tattoo aftercare measures.

Everyone’s body heals differently [reacts a little differently] but there are several key factors to this healing process working correctly: the skill of the tattoo artist applying the tattoo, the quality and sterility of the ink the artist uses, and the tattoo aftercare measures that you take. A skilled tattoo artist will apply the tattoo just deeply enough to reach the dermis – if they go too shallow and put the ink into the epidermis, the ink will be pushed out, if they go too deep and put the ink below the dermis, the tattoo will blow out. In addition to only using quality tattoo inks, reputable tattoo artists will also take measures to sterilize their equipment and to avoid contamination.

How Everence tattoos work:

Components of an Everence Tattoo: Tattoo Ink and Everence.

Everence is a tattoo ink additive, in powder form, which can be added into any new or existing tattoo. Everence is added into tattoo ink, like sugar is added to coffee or tea, stirred for 30 seconds, and then applied as any conventional tattoo would be.

The particles in Everence are synthesized so they are all exactly the correct size and shape to trigger the healing process in the dermis. The source material you provide is contained within microcapsules made of a safe, medical-grade polymer that stays in the site of the tattoo for the life of the tattoo.
