Phtodeceomposition of Pigment Yellow 74, a Pigment Used in Tattoo Inks ¶

The results demonstrate that PY 74 is not photostable in THF and that photochemical lysis occurs at several sites in PY74 including the hydrazone and amide groups, and suggest that the use of Py74 in tattoo inks could potentially result in the formation of photolysis products, resulting in toxicity at the tattoo site after irradiation with sunlight or more intense light sources.

Selective Photothermolysis : Precise Microsurgery by Selective Absorption of Pulsed Radiation

A simple, predictive model of selectively absorbed optical radiation pulses that cause selective damage to pigmented structures, cells, and organelles in vivo and their Hemodynamic, histological, and ultrastructural responses are presented.

Skin reflectance-guided laser selections for treatment of decorative tattoos.

It is recommended that wavelength ranges should be established for maximal tattoo absorption before laser treatment of decorative tattoos to select the most optimal laser wavelength present.

Photochemical cleavage of a tattoo pigment by UVB radiation or natural sunlight

This work dissolved pigments in a suitable solvent and analyzed them after light irradiation, finding that tattooed skin receives UV radiation or natural sunlight and photochemical cleavage of the pigments may occur.

Cosmetic tattoo ink darkening. A complication of Q-switched and pulsed-laser treatment.

Although most tattoos are not darkened by laser treatment, short-pulsed lasers over a wide spectrum can cause immediate darkening of some tattoo inks, and patients are warned of the potential for irreversible cosmetic tattoo darkening.

Clinical, histologic, and ultrastructural evaluation of tattoos treated with three laser systems

Tattoos applied to hairless guinea pigs and treated with three commercially available lasers were evaluated clinically, histologically, and ultrastructurally, showing certain tattoo pigments respond better to different laser systems.

Red tattoo reactions: X‐ray microanalysis and patch‐test studies

It is demonstrated that although reactions to mercury still occur, other red dyes containing a variety of inorganic pigments may provoke a cutaneous inflammatory response.

Nickel dermatitis: how much nickel is safe?

This level of nickel release is currently exceeded by many nickel‐containing alloys and jewellery items that are made from high‐sulfur stainless steel, and manufacturers are going to have to change the composition of jewellery to comply with the directive.
