Synchrotron-based ν-XRF mapping and μ-FTIR microscopy enable to look into the fate and effects of tattoo pigments in human skin

Scientists of the German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR) proved in the course of an international research project that nanometric pigments from tattoo inks can permanently accumulate in lymph nodes.

The study was published in the Scientific Reports magazine of the Nature Publishing Group on 12 September 2017.
