How to know if a tattoo is infected
Tattoos are a way of decorating the body. It consists of modifying the skin pigmentation by injecting ink in it to create a composition with figures or letters.
It is an artistic expression that is common to almost all cultures. The oldest remains of this art date back to 2000 BC and are located in Peru, in the Chinchorro culture, where remains of a tattoo on the body of a mummy. In this same culture there is evidence with 60,000 years old indicating us that it is possible that this art is still more ancient
Its use is different in each culture. For example In Egypt the tattoos were considered an artistic expression, but elsewhere, as in Rome or Greece, the tattoos are used to mark criminals. Perhaps this last use not us is so strange. Do you remember the movie Scarlet Letter? This film spoke about of a woman of the century XVI with a large A on his chest as punishment for adultery.
