How is a tattoo done?
Permanent tattoos are made by using needles that are connected to a small machine with tubes containing dye which repeatedly pricks into the skin. Each needle puncture inserts tiny droplets of ink. The process, which may last several hours for a large tattoo, causes a small amount of bleeding.
