The largest organ of the body

Skin is the largest organ in the body accounting for 50% of the body weight & its top layer is replaced every 28 days. So why doesn't the tattoo ink come off quickly?

Professor Wellsher notes that skin has three layers. Out of which the upper layer is called epidermis middle layer is called dermis and the lowest layer of skin is called hypodermis. The middle layer of the skin contains blood vessels nerves muscles etc.while the lowest layer contains the fatty layer of the skin.

Tattoo ink is transferred to second layer of the skin the dermis where the arteries & nerves responsible for pain transmission are located she explains. Tattoos do not fade from the body because the top layer of skin protects them.

She says that when tattoo ink is injected into the dermis second layer of skin your body gets the message that it is been hurt so the body's defense mechanism is to make white blood cells there. Sends to those who try to quickly extract the political and add it to the bloodstream.
