What makes tattoos permanent?

Our skin shed losing about 30-40 thousand skin cells per hour that's a million per day

The reason why a tattoo doesn’t flake off is with the pigments? The simple answer is Tattooing involves getting into the pigment deep enough in the outermost layer of the skin, as the tattoo needle passes through the skin at a frequency of 50 to 30,000 times per minute the needles allows the ink to seep deep into the dermis which is composed of collagen fibers, nerves, glands, blood vessels and more Every time it penetrates the skin it causes a wound, that alerts the body to begin the healing process, calling the immune system cells to the wound site to begin repairing the skin. it is this very process the makes tattoos permanent
