About this book

Body piercings, tattoos, and permanent make-up have become very popular as a fashion statement in recent decades. This book guides the reader through the world of body art. An overview is first provided of the history and epidemiology of tattoos and piercings. Subsequent chapters go on to examine in detail the materials and devices used in various forms of body art, and the techniques employed. All relevant risks and potential complications are clearly described with the aid of color illustrations. Special attention is paid to allergic reactions and the management of complications. The closing chapter examines the techniques and devices used for tattoo removal, with a particular focus on the use of different lasers.

Reviews

From the reviews: “An overview of the potential complications and removal techniques associated with tattoos, body piercings, and dermatography is presented in this book. … The audience is dermatologists who perform laser for tattoo removal. … I have read only journal articles on this topic, and this book summarizes the current state of knowledge on removal of tattoos and treatment of the various types of infections and dermatitides that may arise.” (Patricia Wong, Doody’s Review Service, March, 2010)
