Tattoo How do they do that?

Well I have always been curious and on Discovery Health there was a programme on Tattoo artists and when I say artists I mean artists because the work that they do, and the colour that they ad is amazing. I cannot and could not have a tattoo because I dislike needles, but any one who has a complete body art gets my full admiration. So how do they do it? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tattoo Explains it in full and its quite well written. I used to think they used a pen and drew across the skin. I had no idea the needle and the ink jet work together, stabbing the skin like a sewing machine just below the dermis to create a spectacular, permanent work of art.

you can delete it, derma abrasion done by a plastic surgeon, they run a very thin knife across the skin and if its very deep, they will do a skin graft. However with the development of the laser derma abrasion is now done by the laser and treatment is less likely to scar. they give you a local anaesthetic and get to work on the tattoo.
